Surfers Paradise property entrepreneur Billy James, and his wife Tracy, welcomed a son named William James Jnr on February 17. Billy and Tracy have a three-year-old daughter together called Seylah, and William is Billy’s fifith child.

Billy is the founder of iconic Gold Coast pub Billy’s Beach House, and recently let it be known that he will be running for councillor in the local elections.

We’ve had a number of stories on mature mothers on the blog, and here is one on a mature-age father – Billy is 64. He doesn’t mind the sleepless nights, and enjoys getting up for baby William; he says that as an older parent, you stop and appreciate it all the more.
