Adding a new baby to the mix hasn’t been easy for the True Grit actor. Hey Matt, any mom could’ve told ya that!
Matt Damon, 40, and his wife Luciana Barroso recently brought home a new baby girl, Stella, and as exciting as that’s been, it’s also stirred things up in the Damon household! Big sisters Alexia, 12, Isabella, 4, and Gia, 2, are still adapting to the new addition, and so are mom and dad!
“Each new baby is different but what gets harder is the fact that you have the other kids now,” says Matt. “It is less that you are intimidated by having another baby, and more that you want to make sure you are not giving any of the other kids short shrift because you feel like you are on paternity leave.” It must be hard spending individual time with each kid, especially when they’re all daddy’s little girls!
But something else that has Matt all wound up is the fact this his tween stepdaughter, Alexis is moving into her teenage years. “Like any father, I’m concerned a little about her becoming a teenager because I know just what teenage boys are thinking,” Matt says. “Luckily, she is a terrific kid and the best you can hope for is that you are raising someone who has a lot of self-esteem and a lot of common sense.” Wow, Matt sounds like an awesome dad who knows all the works on how to take care of four young women. I wonder how he does it!
