Acclaimed psychologist Dr Jordan B Peterson has taken to Twitter to announce he is now a two-time grandfather since his son and his wife have welcomed their baby son into the world.
I became a grandfather a second time with the birth of Elliott Peterson to my son Julian and his wife Jillian at 11:54 last night.— Dr Jordan B Peterson (@jordanbpeterson) May 9, 2020
While a great many expressed their warmest wishes for the now bigger family, some focused on the importance, as they believe, of granddad Jordan taking part in the child's upbringing - and even home schooling given his "brand of courage and intellect":
Please home school them with your brand of courage and intellect.— Warren Waldegger🇨🇦 (@7diggers) May 9, 2020
Happy news, all the best for you and your family Jordan.
God bless you Dr.— HollyManBad (@HollyManBad) May 9, 2020
World need your voice and opinion on recent changes in our lives.
All power to you and your family. I became a grand-father a year ago. A powerful humbling and loving experience. I hope mum, baby and dad flourish. Enter your achievement. 👏— Ifan_Marcus (@IfanMarcus) May 9, 2020
"Maybe we will need a 13th Rule for Life...Always listen to Grandpa", another wishful subscriber wrote cheekily, whereas some hurried to welcome Peterson back "into the limelight":
Congratulations. I hope you are well and can step back into the limelight soon, we need you more than ever now.— DerpTrades (@DerpTrades) May 9, 2020
"And may it be a masculine child", one user posted, sparking a debate about whether the child is a boy or a girl, as despite Elliott commonly being a boy’s name, since quite a few families have been using the name for their daughters.
The University of Toronto psychology professor and conservative guru earlier shared with his followers that he had set about giving his YouTube biblical series a new lease on life in the form of podcasts on his namesake website, starting with the first one - "Introduction to the Idea of God".
The academic is also understood to currently be working on a follow-up book to his best-selling "12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos", released in 2018 and to be looking for an illustrator for the sequel.
