As he promotes his new film Sherlock Holmes, in which he plays the character of Dr. Watson, Jude Law says that it is the role of “dad” which continues to take precedence. Asked by PARADE what’s most important in his life, the 37-year-old actor replies “being a daddy is what counts.”

Noting that he’s been “busy rehearsing” the role for more than ten years, Jude couldn’t help but reflect on how fatherhood has changed him in ways big and small.

Sherlock Holmes is in theaters now. Jude is dad to Rafferty, 13, Iris, 9 and Rudy, 7, with ex-wife Sadie Frost, as well as 3-month-old Sophia with Samantha Burke.
