    On life with a new baby
    "We're definitely still euphoric. But in terms of juggling responsibilities, you're going, 'I'll do that. No problem, I'll do that.' After a week you go, 'Wait a minute! We have to figure out a plan here.' The girls are all different ages and so they all require different things. It's a lot of running around."

    On adjusting to 4 kids
    "It's been pretty crazy! The baby came a couple of weeks early. It's our fourth, so we've done it before - but it's a whole new dynamic. It'll take a little getting used to. [But] the other girls are happy to have their little sister, so it's amazing."

    On being a family man
    "Yeah, but it didn't seem like much of a choice. I moved and suddenly it wasn't just my wife. It was her 4-year-old little girl - who's now 12. There was never a choice. It was just the way it was, and I was happy for that. It was very different, it's true, but I can't imagine my life having not gone down that road. I can't imagine what my life would be now. I don't want to imagine it."
