Actor Eddie Redmayne who recently became father says that becoming a father is totally a different feeling altogether and one just never gets prepared enough for fatherhood.
The 34-year-old actor has a four-month-old girl named Iris with wife Hannah Bagshawe.
Eddie says that fatherhood has opened up "different parts of his heart", as after a long hard day at work, it simply gives him something to be cheerful about at the end of the day.
"I don't think anything can prepare you. The amazing thing is everything that everyone tells you beforehand -- which is all cliche -- is true," Redmayne said in a statement.
He also added that, even if one does prepare himself for fatherhood and learns everything about it beforehand, it will be an unique experience when one actually becomes a father.
"You've heard it all before and yet when you're experiencing it, it feels like the first time and you suddenly start telling everyone these things as if they're completely new and original thoughts. And they're like, Yeah that's the cliche." said the actor.
"But all the things, like different parts of your heart opening... It's really extraordinary. There's this amazing thing with children -- whenever you're having a bit of a tired moment or something, it's like she's always just one stop ahead of you, smiling you along. It's great," Eddie added.
