Chris Noth talks about Orion and opening of Once Upon a Tea Cup

Chris Noth is a proud daddy! The 53-year-old Sex and the City star showed Ladies Home Journal a photo (available in their May issue), taken when now 11-week-old son Orion Christopher was just a week old, and said,

Everyone says their baby is beautiful. Mine really is. I never thought I’d see the day where the sound of a child crying would be music to my ears.

Chatting about Once Upon a Tea Cup, the tearoom he opened in girlfriend Tara Wilson‘s Windsor, Ontario hometown, Chris revealed,

It’s a place where a mother or a couple can relax and kids can play. We have costumes and children’s yoga. I had no idea when we started this that we’d be bringing our own child there. I can’t wait to watch my son dress up as a fireman or a cop.

He is gorgeous!!!!! A TON of hair! Reminds me of my baby (now 15) when he was a newborn!

Lots of glorious hair. Another shared treasure between the Canadians and the Americans.

I find it interesting that he pictures his son dressing up as a fireman or a cop… 🙂 When I worked at a daycare, a lot of the little boys I looked after much preferred dressing up in skirts and dresses and the like. Not for any psychology reasons, I don’t think, other than that they’re innocent to that sort of thing yet and just enjoy the dress-up. 🙂

Aww, Orion is beautiful. Love all the dark hair, and the way he’s still trying to chew his hand even though it’s mitted. So cute!

I also have a soft spot for men holding their newborns, especially ones where they’re resting/sleeping on Daddy’s chest. *le sigh*

aw, how cute… i love when a baby comes out with a head full of hair~ my kids were both baldies. i just can’t help but remember, though, how many people online were suggesting suri was wearing a wig when she was introduced… thick hair on a baby is beautiful, and that’s it. 🙂

once upon a tea cup looks so nice, and it’s close to me!! 🙂

Ahhh. Just when I thought the man coldn’t be any sexier… Been a big fan for years, both L&O and SITC. His son is a sight to behold, I am glad he and Tara have been given this beautiful gift!

Every comment that you make is about how much a kid looks like the darker parent. We get it. Thanks. Can we move on now? Thanks.

Mr Big is a Daddy.

That is such a sweet picture. My heart melts when you hear a proud papa full of love for his child.

Would the mum be okay if the baby one day wanted to dress up as a ballerina or snow white?
