Matt Damon On The Hard Part About A New Baby

With four kids in the house, actor Matt Damon is a seasoned pro when it comes to fatherhood. But the Oscar-winner, who welcomed daughter Stella with his wife Luciana in October, admits that bringing home a new baby is always a challenge.

“Each new baby is different but what gets harder is the fact that you have the other kids now,” says Matt. “It is less that you are intimidated by having another baby, and more that you want to make sure you are not giving any of the other kids short shrift because you feel like you are on paternity leave.”

The True Grit star adds that he’s a bit nervous that his stepdaughter Alexia is about to enter her teenage years.

“Like any father, I’m concerned a little about her [Alexia] becoming a teenager… because I know just what teenage boys are thinking. Luckily, she is a terrific kid and the best you can hope for is that you are raising someone who has a lot of self-esteem and a lot of common sense.”

Matt and Luciana are also parents to Isabella, 4, and Gia, 2.

    Matt really means he’s older and feeling it. You can only do so much with three kids under the age of 5 and one pre-teen! Having to tell kids I cannot because of the new baby gets old. 4 year olds and 2 years old needs as much attention as newborns!
