Hands-on dad Matt Damon admits that life has been “pretty crazy” since he and his wife Luciana welcomed their baby girl Stella last month. The 40-year-old Oscar-winner, who also has daughters Isabella, 4, and Gia, 2, and stepdaughter Alexia, 12, somehow found time to chat to Hello! Canada about his newly expanded family-of-six.
On life with a new baby: “We’re definitely still euphoric. But in terms of juggling responsibilities, you’re going, ‘I’ll do that. No problem, I’ll do that.’ After a week you go, ‘Wait a minute! We have to figure out a plan here.’ The girls are all different ages and so they all require different things. It’s a lot of running around.”
On adjusting to 4 kids: “It’s been pretty crazy! The baby came a couple of weeks early. It’s our fourth, so we’ve done it before – but it’s a whole new dynamic. It’ll take a little getting used to. [But] the other girls are happy to have their little sister, so it’s amazing.”
On being a family man: “Yeah, but it didn’t seem like much of a choice. I moved and suddenly it wasn’t just my wife. It was her 4-year-old little girl – who’s now 12. There was never a choice. It was just the way it was, and I was happy for that. It was very different, it’s true, but I can’t imagine my life having not gone down that road. I can’t imagine what my life would be now. I don’t want to imagine it.”
