7 Life Lessons Rob Dyrdek Can Teach His Soon-To-Arrive Son

You know, based on his 'Ridiculousness' and 'Fantasy Factory' experiences.

Rob Dyrdek has taken on many jobs during his MTV tenure -- but the Ridiculousness and Fantasy Factory front man is about to embark on a brand-new and life-changing responsibility: fatherhood. #HereComesBabyDyrdek, indeed!

But before the entrepreneur welcomes his son with wife Bryiana (the super sweet announcement pic can be seen above), there are plenty of life lessons he can use straight from his televised adventures. From cherishing loved ones to always donning protective gear, here's a few pointers that Daddy Dyrdek can give his very own mini-me:

  1. Be Fearless

    It's evident that the stuntman attacks each task -- whether it's small or record-breaking (as seen above) -- with resolve and a bit of humor. So his precious peanut will no doubt do the same -- in due time, of course.

  2. Don't be a Picky Eater

    You must try every type of food -- including an ostrich egg.

  3. Family And Friends Are Everything

    Rob is known for surrounding himself with a diverse, hysterical crowd -- and even a few celebs like Justin Bieber (seen above) -- so the little lad needs to understand the importance of being around those (like cousins and best pals) who will always have your back.

  4. Laughter Is Key

    Whether it's partaking in an absurd activity or viewing a viral video, letting out a chuckle is vital. Especially if it's the uncontrollable type, like when reacting to poor Chanel taking a dodgeball to the face.

  5. Be Resourceful

    When there's a will, there's a way! During some instances in the fun house, Rob had to venture out and make items/things that didn't already exist (you know like, a food truck). His kiddo will certainly inherit the creative gene -- and will (eventually) need to put it to good use!

  6. Never Grow Up

    The Ohio native is a kid at heart, and you don't have to be an adult to have endless amounts of fun. And a brief memo to Rob's future child: You're never too old to dress up like a turd.

  7. Always Wear a Helmet

    Pretty self-explanatory.

What other teachings can Rob give his offspring? Share 'em in the comments, offer your well wishes for the parents-to-be and be sure to catch the future papa on Ridiculousness on Thursday at 10/9c!
