The actor admits he still wakes up at night to check that his kids with wife Luciana Barroso are still breathing!

Movie action man Matt Damon admits he’s a big softy when it comes to his four daughters! What’s he going to be like when they start dating?!

“My wife’s nickname for me is ‘Red Alert,'” Matt, 40, jokes. “I sometimes check to see if the kids are breathing.”

Matt and Luciana have three kids together; Isabella, 5, Gia, 3, and Stella, 10 months, and he’s stepdad to Alexia, 12, his wife’s daughter from a previous relationship.

He admits he was never paranoid before he became a dad, adding, “I’m probably more protective than I’ve ever been now that I have children.”

Can you relate to Matt, HollyMoms and dads? Did parenthood make you a nervous wreck?
