Does Smoking Affect Sperm Count?

Dear Midwife,

My wife and I have a 4-year-old daughter, we are trying to have another.

I have a few questions:
(1) When is the best time to conceive?
(2) Will current tobacco use have any effect any my sperm count, etc.?
(3) Is 4 too young to be in the delivery room for the next child?
(4) What is the best way to keep one child from being jealous of the new baby?
