Flyers Glen Metropolit Says Love is All That Matters

09/17/2008 at 07:00 AM ET

Growing up in poverty and, at times, foster care has had an undeniable, understandable impact on hockey player Glen Metropolit. The 34-year-old forward for the Philadelphia Flyers says that regardless of the upheaval of his youth he "always felt loved" — asking "what more could you want?" Although his own children — 6-year-old Alivia, 4-year-old Max and 2-year-old Esther — are enjoying an upbringing that is vastly different than their father’s, Glen says that the love remains the same.

"I love my kids so much that I can’t give them enough affection. My wife tells me I need to work on the discipline part of it. That’s tough for me."

Alivia, Max and Esther are Glen’s children with wife Michlyn.

I really like the way they’ve spelt their eldest daughter’s name, Alivia is very cute and an unusual spin on Olivia.

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!"
