Melbourne, July 19 (ANI): Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones has been stripped of the Victorian Father of the Year award after he admitted bearing an illegitimate child with an air hostess.

Jones confessed having a son with airhostess Kerri-Anne Hamilton.

The decision came after the 49-year-old legend cricket revealed he had a nine year affair with Sydney flight attendant Hamilton and had a child with her he has never seen.

Father of the Year Council president Don Parsons said that the award was revoked after Jones’ shocking admission.

“From now on, 2007 will simply show as blank - that’s our attitude,” quoted Parsons as saying.

“To take off and have a love child, and that he has not even seen the child. We are somewhat rocked by it.

“What sort of fathering is that,” he added. (ANI)
