Less than one month after the birth of his daughter, Gia, proud new dad Matt Damon spoke about how fatherhood has changed his life for the better,
“It probably influences me in ways I’m not even aware of,” the actor said at the Toronto International Film Festival. “I think certainly once you have kids it’s hard not to see your child in every other child that you meet. And when you see the way a lot of children live in the world it makes you very angry as a parent.”
When asked what he loves the most about being a dad, he couldn’t decide on just one thing,
“Well that’s a tough question because there’s a lot to love about it. It’s probably the indescribable way that a new child opens up your heart. It sounds kinda corny but it’s true.”
Matt said his newborn baby daughter Gia, who was born on Aug. 20, is already smiling,
“She smiles now… mostly when she goes to the bathroom. That’s natural.”
Matt and wife Luciana Barroso are also parents to 2-year-old daughter Isabella and Alexia, Luciana’s daughter from a previous relationship. The couple wed in a civil ceremony in NYC on Dec. 9, 2005.
