Owen Wilson might not have previously been one to ogle someone’s bundle of joy – but fatherhood has quickly changed that!
The birth of son Robert with girlfriend Jade Duell last month, has changed the 42-year-old actor’s outlook on parenting.
“I was never like somebody who was like, ‘Oh gosh, it’s a little baby! Let me hold it’” Owen told Access Hollywood’s Laura Saltman at the junket for his new comedy “Hall Pass.”
“They’re so fragile, but then when it is your own, all of a sudden you feel a lot more confident,” Owen continued. “You really do have this bond, this real connection with this thing that a month ago wasn’t even here… It is strange.”
Owen also noted that he hasn’t had any baby fumbles.
“I haven’t dropped him yet,” he joked.
As for who little Robert looks like, Owen is still undecided if he takes after mom or dad.
“I don’t know if you can say,” he explained. “Babies look a lot more like other babies than they ever do like their parents. That’s what I’ve begun to notice!”
The new dad has also noticed that things he might have once winced at now bring him joy.
“Their little cries are like beautiful music,” he added with a smile.
“Hall Pass,” with Jason Sudeikis, Alyssa Milano, Christina Applegate and Jenna Fischer opens in theaters on February 25.
