"Now entering its third season, #123Parent has been an overwhelming success with our followers, viewers, readers and the brands that have partnered with us for this series," says Living & Loving Online editor, Sonya Naude.

"In addition to #123Parent, we're extremely excited to have launched Pappa Bakes with JC Snooke. The father of twin boys, he loves to bake when things get rough. Like the #123Parent with Melissa Swart, we're confident that our readers and viewers will embrace Pappa Bakes just as enthusiastically," Naude adds. 

"As proof of the popularity of the vlog, Epi-Max has retained its brand sponsorship of #123Parent for the past two seasons, renewing for the third. With the past two seasons reaching between 5 000 and 14 000 people per episode, we're thrilled to see even more growth in the third season," says Naude.

Both series are produced by Life in a Bulb Productions, and are accessible through the Living & Loving Online Facebook page. There is a R10 000 cash prize up for grabs for the Living & Loving Online Facebook fan who answers all ten questions correctly that are posed by Melissa at the end of each of the 10 episodes.

The Pappa Bakes series will see the host showcasing his culinary talents — baking everything from cupcakes for kids, to showing dads how to make a peppermint crisp tart.
