Die Hard alum Bruce Willis isn’t sweating becoming a fourth time father later in life – in fact, he claims it has helped him maintain his action career.
”One of the things that makes becoming a father that much easier for me is that I pretty much stay in shape and I can run and jump and play, and being a father at this point in my life is great,” he tells the Daily Mirror newspaper. ”I feel like I have the same amount of love I used to have, if not more. I like getting up early and I like looking after Mabel and it’s just very exciting – it makes me very happy.”
In addition to being father to his 9-month-old daughter with wife Emma Heming, the 57-year-old star also co-parents his daughters Rumer, 24, Scout, 21, and Tallulah, 19, with ex-wife Demi Moore – and couldn’t be more happy with the “great women” they have grown into.
”There was a time when I didn’t quite know what kind of adults they were going to turn into,” he admits. “‘But they turned into really great women and they have great morals and great ethics and they’re also kind, polite and intelligent and I couldn’t be more pleased.”
”We always raised them to have their own voices and to speak their minds and their opinions,” Bruce adds. “‘And now that they’re older I hear every opinion they have and I’m pleased with it.”
