“It’s amazing. It is amazing. My first, obviously, and she’s just a little bundle of joy every day,” he said of being a father.

“It’s just this amazing thing where all the clichés are true. I mean, all of them, they’re like, ‘oh, you’ll never experience love like this’ that’s true. And ‘you think you’re in love with them when they first arrive, but you have no idea how much deeper it gets all the time.’ That’s absolutely true. And, and as she starts to come alive and really experience the world and her natural curiosity, and she’s so fearless, it’s just the most incredible thing to watch. And then, you know, sometimes she just wants a hug and your heart falls out of your chest because you’re like, ‘Aw.’”

As for whether he’s showed her his past projects like Mighty Ducks yet, he said: “I think it might be a little bit early. I’m extremely curious to see how she reacts to daddy on camera. Like first off. I mean, it will be many, many years from now, but like when, say for instance, if she ever watches The Mighty Ducks, like that’s me as a little boy. I don’t know how she will react to seeing like age rewound dad.”

“And they’re calling me by the wrong name and you know, like you’re going through some difficult situations. I don’t know. We’ll we’ll see. That’s all that’s in my future, but I can tell you it’s going to be a lot longer before she sees Dr. Death,” he explained.

Cruel Intentions. I’ll get some cool credit and like her mid-teens probably. Yeah, but Dr. Death would be only when, like, when I really need to scare her into cleaning her room. I think that’s when we’ll put on Dr. Death, this is what your father is capable of. You want to argue with me now?” he joked.

He also just opened up about how wife Jodie Turner-Smith proposed!
