David Boreanaz shares what he loves most about being a dad

5 Actor David Boreanaz, 37, credits his four-year-old son Jaden (with wife Jaime Bergman) for changing his perspective on life.

"It’s given me a clear understanding of priorities and responsibilities – things aren’t just all about you. It was really easy when I had no responsibilities."

When asked what he loves best about being a dad, David said  "to see him come in after a long day and share his experiences with me and having him run to me like he’s about to do right now. He’s got this big smile on his face, he’s chomping some gum. Being a dad for me is about this right here."

David is well-known for his past roles on Buffy, the Vampire Slayer and Angel and currently stars in the hit Fox TV show Bones (which was just picked up for a second season).
