Paul Bettany says that fatherhood made him feel like 'a good human being'

Jennifer_connelly_maz When his wife Jennifer Connelly gave birth to their son Stellan, actor Paul Bettany said that it was a "miraculous" experience and that fatherhood has made him feel like  "a good human being."

Stellan, now 2 1/2, visited the set of The Da Vinci Code, and according to Paul, got quite a kick out of seeing his father in costume. "Stellan was a bit confused as to why I had cotton and plastic on my head.  He just kept looking at me running up and down the hall.  He would point and gurgle.  He thought it was really funny."

While he loves being a father, Paul says that adding more children to their family is a decision that the couple will make together. "It’s a conversation that the woman in the relationship absolutely has the upper hand in, bearing in mind that she is the one who will be going through an enormous amount of pain in childbirth."

Paul and Jennifer have been married since January 2003.  Jennifer also has a son Kai from a previous relationship.

These two are another favorite celebrity couple of mine. They seem like a class act all the way.

I love them too. She is one of the most beautiful women ever, in my opinion. I hope they have more kids together– a little girl would be nice.

"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!"
