He may be a father now but Hamish Blake will forever remain Andy Lee's partner in crime.

The larrikin duo recently spent several weeks in South America for the latest instalment of their hit series Hamish and Andy's Gap Year before returning home in time for the birth of Blake's first child with author wife Zoe Foster-Blake last month.

With baby Sonny now safely delivered into the world, the pair flew back to Brazil earlier this week to resume filming the six-part program, which is due to return to Channel Nine in July.

But even though their past adventures have seen the Logie-nominated personalities risk their lives by trekking up erupting volcanoes, travelling on notorious Death Road in Bolivia and eating all manner of bizarre cultural delicacies, Lee says Blake is still up for continuing their wacky escapades despite his new role as a dad.

"Obviously he will miss the little guy and his lovely wife but he will also get to sleep again, which might be welcome for him," Lee told AAA Weekend.

Lee added he expected the tot to quickly outsmart his famous father.

"There's no doubt Sonny will be more sensible than Hamish by age four," the comedian mused.

"By about three-and-a-half, that's probably when he will be on a level playing field with Hame and reminding him of things to do that are not so silly."

Meanwhile, fellow funnyman Rove McManus recently suggested Sonny should meet his own baby, Ruby, in a Twitter post.

"@hamishblake Belated congrats to you and @zotheysay on the arrival of Sonny. Too early and inappropriate to book a first date with Ruby?" McManus wrote.

Foster-Blake responded the play date would be good TV fodder.

"Let's make it into a reality show and call it . . . Infant Attraction. Or, Love In The First Infants," the new mother joked.
