Heath Ledger says, "I'll be Mr. Mom"

02/21/2006 at 12:01 PM ET

After the Academy Awards in March, Heath Ledger will be a stay-at-home dad to his 4 month old daughter Matilda for the rest of 2006 so his fiance Michelle Williams can work her Oscar nomination mojo. 

Heath said, "I’m going to try not to work at all this year and send Michelle out to bring in the cash. I’ll be Mr. Mom. It’s something that’s very important to me – something that every dad, if he can, should do his best to achieve."

He also said, "My life right now is, I wouldn’t say reduced to food, but my duties in life are that I wake up, cook breakfast, clean the dishes, prepare lunch, clean those dishes, go to the market, get fresh produce, cook dinner, clean those dishes and then sleep if I can.  And I love it. I actually adore it."

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
