While most parents may cringe at the thought of their children going through the “potty humor” phase, laid back daddy Jack Black think it’s all just par for the course!
“I think it’s just DNA. It’s accepted. I’m not going to say it’s encouraged, you know? We didn’t introduce him to the concept of potty humor,” explains the 41-year-old Gulliver’s Travels star of his 4-year-old son, Sammy. “But, kids naturally think it’s funny stuff, you know. Poop, and pee and farts, it’s all just very funny.
And I think it’s good, because it gets them over their issues with going to the bathroom by themselves and similar situations. I think it’s all pretty positive.
Recently, Jack – who also has a 2-year-old son, Thomas – expressed his desire to keep his kiddos in the dark about his career: “I’m trying to keep it well-hid. They’re like, ‘Whatever. Daddy’s Daddy.’ They think I’m a salesman.”
The boys’ mother is Jack’s wife of nearly four years, Tanya Haden.
