Having a little girl brings out daddy’s softer side. That’s what happened to Vince the day his daughter was born!
Becoming a father is the best thing that has ever happened to Vince Vaughn. The whole experience has completely changed him! “It gives you a different purpose,” the 40-year-old The Dilemma star tells ET Canada. Vince and his wife Kyla Weber celebrated the birth of their daughter Locklyn Vaughn on Dec. 18. And ever since then the former party boy has been a very devoted dad.
“I’ll tell you … When Kyla and I had the first pediatrician appointment, we [had to] get the car seat and put it in the back of the car. Kyla buckled up and I got in the car. And I was like, ‘We’re a family,'” Vince continues. “‘We’re going to an appointment as a family.’ It’s just a great feeling.”
“I feel so grateful. You know, my wife’s so great,” Vince says. “But I gotta tell you. Just the minute they come out, so beautiful and just so sweet — I was just so glad that everyone was healthy!”
And although Locklyn has a name, Vince has been referring to his little girl as baby. “She’ll have to learn,” he tells Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show today (Jan. 14). “If I just call her ‘Baby’ then she’ll love the movie Dirty Dancing but she won’t know her proper name. No one puts her in a corner.” Well, if she’s anything like you, Vince, she’s sure to always be the center of attention.
Now Vince totally knows what it means to be a worry-wart. “My thing is getting ahead [of myself] and worrying about stuff,” he admits. “She’s only three weeks old, right?! People are like, ‘Where is she going to college?’ I didn’t even know she wanted to go to college!” Can you relate, HollyMoms? How soon did you start planning for your baby’s future?
