Ethan loves to spend time with his kids! He tells, “I just want to have fun with them all the time!”

How cute! Ethan Hawke was on daddy duty on Oct. 7 as he took his 2-year-old daughter, Clementine, for a ride on his shoulders around the streets of New York City — and it looks like she was enjoying the view! Hopefully she didn’t have anything too sticky in those little hands and that she wasn’t pulling her daddy’s hair too hard.

Ethan Hawke taught his son how to play poker!

Ethan just loves to spoil his kids! “I just want to have fun [with them] all the time,” Ethan tells “That’s my problem. I’m one of those dads who wants to be everybody’s best friend!”

The 39-year-old works hard to balance his career with his family life. “That’s a struggle for every parent,” he admits to us. “Balance is always the thing about not being conflicted — when you’re with your kids, being with them, when you’re away from them being at work and doing that job well …  not screwing up both things. It’s very hard.”

Ethan Hawke’s daughter Clementine is a fashionista!

Ethan, who has two older children, Maya, 12, and Levon, 8, with ex-wife Uma Thurman, says the biggest worry about being a parent is “not letting anything bad happen to your kids.”

And when it comes to little Clementine specifically, “I want her to develop and grow into the person that fulfills her the most,” Ethan explains. “That’s all I care about.”
