Jack Black Gets Teary-Eyed Over Fatherhood
"I cry all the time," the dad of two says. "I always cry at movies and sometimes even cry at ads"
Fatherhood has driven funnyman Jack Black to tears – of sentimentality.
“I cry all the time. I always cry at movies and sometimes even cry at ads,” the actor tells the October issue of British Cosmopolitan.
“The other day I was watching one for a cereal,” he continues. “The father’s trying to feed the baby and it calls him mama. He keeps going, ‘It’s dada.’ I came over all sniffly because it happened to me! Sammy (his 2-year-old son) didn’t call me dada for ages.”
Earlier this year Black, 39, became a father of two when his wife Tanya Haden, 36, gave birth to son Tommy. “It was great,” he tells the magazine. And naturally: “I cried!”
And what about the difficulties of being a dad? “The only negative is that you spend a lot of time worrying about this delicate little life,” he says. “I didn’t know I could feel so much, and was surprised by my own awesome heart.”
