And he shares more about the special moment his new daughter first looked into his eyes.
"The first time I held her in my arms, she looked up at me with this frown – which she definitely got from me – with a look on her face as if to say: 'Oh my god, I've got a sneaky suspicion that's my father!'"
"I fell in love at that point."
