James McAvoy Is Still Getting Used To Sleep Deprivation

New parents James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff have so far kept pretty quiet when it comes to their 1-year-old son Brendan, but the X-Men star will admit this much about fatherhood: It’s exhausting!

“When people say, ‘If you don’t have children, you won’t understand,’ that’s not true. The lack of sleep is the thing that you don’t understand. I’m still coming to terms with that. The bags under my eyes – that’s the biggest thing I’ll take away from the first year,” the 32-year-old actor admits.

Asked to explain how fatherhood has changed him, James replied, “I don’t know really. We’ll have to wait and see as it goes on. I think you can only answer that in 18 years time.”

Anne-Marie doesn’t need to wait that long, though! The happy mom recently gushed, “I know all mothers and fathers feel that way. Yes, he’s just gorgeous… I do feel my life’s completely expanded since he arrived. When my baby was born, I felt like somebody had spiked my drink and I suddenly was so full of love that it was a little bit as if I was drugged… I didn’t think that anyone could feel that way.”
