DOTING DAD
Though he considers himself blessed to have grown up in a loving home, Jamie remains perplexed by his mother and father giving him up for adoption. In a recent interview he explained that the drive behind his football prowess was an attempt to prove himself to them. "I was making the Dallas Morning News, and my father never came down. That's weird. Even to this day – nothing,” he said. “But that absence made me angry. It made me want to be something. I said, I'm going to make you look up one day and say, 'That's my son'.”

Jamie has always tried to be there for his own daughter Corrine, who was born in 1995. She lives with her mom just a few blocks from the actor's LA home and frequently accompanies him to Hollywood premieres.

While his love of the fairer sex has been well documented, it is Corrine who is the most important female presence in his life. “I'm most proud of my relationship with my daughter, because the things I get from her are real,” he says, adding that were he ever asked to give up his career for his daughter, his would do so “in a minute”.
