Parenthood has made a believer out of Josh Lucas!

The new dad admits he and his wife Jessica previously scoffed at overly enthusiastic parents, but the pair have had a change of heart since the birth of their first child, son Noah Rev, in June.

“My wife and I always joked about the fact that we thought people were just drinking the Kool-Aid, like the whole thing was a scam,” the Red Dog actor, 41, tells Access Hollywood Live.

Noting that “everyone says [parenthood is] the best thing you’ve ever done,” Lucas is completely head over heels for his 10-week-old baby boy.

“From day one it’s the most amazing thing,” he notes. “I will go sleepless and die for this child already.”

Only adding to Lucas’s wonderment is the current status of his son.

“I’m still dealing with a blob,” he says. “I’m still dealing with something that’s just now beginning to communicate through smiling and through these magical little moments that happen only very briefly through the day.”

Known for flashing his sweet smile onscreen, Lucas jokes that Noah doesn’t seem to be following in his father’s footsteps.

“My child, so far, is remarkably unphotogenic,” he says with a laugh. “It’s quite weird. He’s a great looking kid, but [in] every photograph he just looks bizarre!”
