Life with his two "incredible" children — daughter Ella Olivia and Quinlin Dempsey — is perfect for Ben Stiller, who was recently able to include the duo in his new movie Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. A proud papa, the 42-year-old actor, who thinks "they’re ridiculously cute at six and three," says the feelings of "joy," along with the "wonderful challenge" of raising kids, is universally shared and understood best by other parents.

However, despite his obvious love for his kids, Ben and his wife Christine Taylor do not plan on expanding their family any further! With Ben "happy where we’re at right now," Christine — who during her trips out to New York, keeps her "watch set to L.A time so I know where [the kids] are at every moment" — completely agrees with her husband that a third would throw off the balance. "Two is enough for now. Three’s off," says Christine, as Ben adds,

"Two is a handful. I feel very fortunate and blessed."

Aw, I always thought they would have a third for some reason. They make cute kids!

It’s good to hear couples that are on the same page when it comes to the number of kids.

Christine Taylor is so beautiful!
It too bad that we see a “Yeti” right next to her…
