Edward Furlong and son Ethan

Terminator 2‘s Edward Furlong, 29, and his wife, actress Rachael Bella, 22, welcomed their first child, Ethan Page, on September 21, 2006. Edward talked to People magazine about being a father.

He says he has really mellowed ("Rachel’s turned me into a mushball") and is vice-free with the exception of a 2-3 pack a day cigarette habit (though he says he’s trying to quit by his 30th for his son). He says, "It’s definitely trippy. I did a lot of stuff when I was a kid, and I’ve never seen anything as trippy as my own kid looking at me."

Edward said, "It’s so weird- I sort of feel like a teenager with a baby. The other day I got him to calm down by myself. It felt great. Awesome. It made me feel a little grown up."

Edward is extremely happy with his domesticated life. "The fact is that I’m holding him in my arms and I’m happy. I’ve still got a roof over my head and I have a beautiful wife, a beautiful son, two cars. I think I appreciate what I have even more because I almost lost everything."
