Jamie Dornan Talking About His Daughters August 2016

Jamie Dornan Talks About Being a Dad to 2 Little Girls: "It's Pretty Insane"

Jamie Dornan sat down for a new interview on Live! With Kelly on Friday, where he couldn't help but gush about his sweet home life. The actor, who's currently promoting his new movie, Anthropoid, dished to Kelly Ripa and guest cohost Nick Lachey about his experiences being a dad. Of course, fatherhood is nothing new to Jamie; he welcomed his first child, daughter Dulcie, with wife Amelia Warner in November 2013, and the pair then welcomed their second child this past March. As it turns out, though, having a second baby in the family offers a whole new set of obstacles.

  • On having two daughters: "We've got two little girls now, so it's pretty insane. . . . One of my best friends said that one is a pet, two is a zoo."
  • On how he juggles fatherhood: "It's been a big adjustment and it's definitely harder and you get less time to yourself, but human beings are very good at adaptation. You have to just go with it and accept less sleep and accept less time in your hands and accept less reading of books and washing and all the usual things you do in a day."
  • On trying for a baby boy: "I always thought I'd want the boy because . . . I think as a guy, you just think, 'I'll have a little mini version of myself' or something in a sort of [narcissistic] way, but then once you've had girls, I can't imagine having [another one]."
