Speaking to PEOPLE about his children in 2022, the actor said, "I always knew I wanted kids, as did my wife."

“My mother always used to say to me, 'I've learned so much from you kids,' and I didn't get it. Now I get it,” he said at the time.

He also gave a glimpse into his kids’ personalities and biggest differences.

"One is more of an old soul. I never used that term until they came out of the womb and I looked in their eyes. I was like, 'Holy cow, look at you. You're here to teach me,' " the actor said. "As well as the other one, who's a young soul. It's ever-evolving and a complete fulfillment of my life."
