“Having a little girl is incredible.” – Michael on his only daughter
“When my daughter Carys wants to get married I’ll be as rough with the guy as Catherine’s dad was when he checked me out. He gave me the once over and then some.” – protective papa Michael on his daughter’s future boyfriend.
“The kids recently started new schools, which means having to make new friends. I like to get them up in the morning and get them ready for school. I make them breakfast, and we talk about their day. I like to know who their friends are. I can see the tightness of the bond we feel and the security they have. It is tremendous, unequivocal love with no judgment, and that is the best feeling in the world.” – Michael on his two youngest children.
“My career was the most important thing in my life, followed by marriage and children. And it’s completely reversed now. I never anticipated starting a family and the joy of raising kids at my age. I think it’s easier for me to be a good father. I’m not so concerned about my career. I like to be home a lot more now. I see the confidence my kids have got versus the struggle for confidence that I had or that Cameron might have dealt with.” – Michael on admitting his faults during his younger years, making reference to his eldest son’s federal prison sentencing due to drug charges.
