Rhys Ifans says he would love to have children. The 44-year-old Welsh actor, who is currently dating Anna Friel, insists he’s not too old to become a father.
The Anonymous star tells the Daily Mirror, “Men are never too old to have kids. They might be too old to be fathers, but I don’t think I am yet. I’d love to have children, it would be nice, yes.”
Ifans says Anna, who has a 6-year-old daughter named Gracie, has taught him how to “compromise” and isn’t sure if he wants to raise a family in Wales.
He shares, “I don’t know. Britain is a small place. Life’s about compromises, as I’ve discovered at long last. I’m not some medieval brigand going to put my wife and children in a Welsh cave. With this life, it’s such a random business where you can live, but it does change when you fall in love, and with someone who has a child as well.
“I would never call myself a stepfather but yeah I love kids and want them.”
