Gustavo Caballero/Getty Images Celebs Who Were Really, Really Good at Keeping Their Baby News a Secret The Lord of the Rings alum gets breakfast together for his kids, serving up "oatmeal with various spices, peanut butter and fruit—banana, apples, blackberries. I also really like overnight oats or muesli with yogurt, and I sometimes eat that with them." When it comes to parenthood, Wood said, "You're constantly being challenged, in the best way." "It's as much my own personal growth as it is about my child's growth," he added. Presley Ann/Patrick McMullan via Getty Wood also touched on his private nature in the interview, where it's noted that his Instagram account is private. "I wanted to be able to share photos that I didn't necessarily want to share with the world," he explained. "An account that's public-facing would really change what I share." He added, "It's not like I'm sharing anything that I wouldn't want to go out, but I'm a relatively private person."
