The Voice host Carson Daly and his expectant partner, food blogger Siri Pinter, bumped up the 2012 Critics’ Choice Television Awards on Monday (June 18). The couple – who are already parents to 3-year-old son Jackson – were all smiles at the Beverly Hills event.
The Last Call with Carson Daly host recently opened up about the joys of fatherhood, saying, “I sort of get life’s purpose now.”
He added: “It’s something you don’t really understand until you’ve created something with your life partner or someone that you love. So I look at my time with my son and it really put things in perspective.”
The proud papa went on to say that having a child is a “game changer.”
“I thought I had things in perspective,” he shared. “With me, it’s my faith and my family and everything else falls somewhere in categories underneath all that. But when you have your child, it’s a game changer. It makes me hyper aware of how blessed I am. He reminds me to be thankful and appreciative of the things we have everyday. Before I had my son, I was like, ‘What’s the next marker in my career?’ You look forward to life moving quickly but the minute you have a kid, I just want to slow down and enjoy every second. I lost my father at a young age so fatherhood holds a special place to me.”
