Ava1_cbbSide Order of Life star Jason Priestley, 38, and his wife Naomi welcomed daughter Ava Veronica on July 2nd, and the new dad couldn’t be prouder of both his now 3-month-old daughter and his wife.

[Ava]’s gorgeous and I just love her to pieces, both her and my wife, Naomi. I’m a very, very, very lucky man.

I do sleep prettywell for the limited amount of time that I sleep. She is a good sleeperand a good eater and we are all doing really well. It is a team effort.It is just the three of us, we don’t have any help. We are all in ittogether. I feel like I’m the cook and the manager and the diaperchanger. I’ve got to make sure that I keep my wife fed and watered soshe can keep our baby fed. It is Ava’s job to sleep and to poop.

It isa beautiful cycle of life going on. I love it. I’m so lucky and blessedto be able to have this time with my wife and daughter. I’m justdrinking up every second of it. Before I know it, I’ll go to sleep onenight and wake up and she’ll be asking me for the car keys.

Cheers to them for doing it themselves! That is so rare in Hollywood, it really needs to be applauded.

I adore him even more now 🙂 Fatherhood suites him and motherhood looks good on her. I like his life cycle perspective haha.

I loved it when he said “I’ve got to make sure that I keep my wife fed and watered so she can keep our baby fed” so sweet!

It is so nice to hear from an actor who is well known to talk about his family so spontaneously and lovingly. It is very refreshing! I can only deduce that Jason and Naomi’s daughter Ava will grow up to be a very happy and contented child. The Priestley’s appear to be excellent role models. Well done them!
