While Tom may be looking forward to someday having kids, he does seem like he’ll take his time. The star revealed that he does enjoy spending time with children though. “I love kids. I can’t wait to be a dad — I can wait and I will, but I can’t wait!” he explained. “If I’m at a wedding or a party, I’m always at the kids’ table hanging out. My dad’s been such a great role model for me. I think I’ve got that from him.” The Uncharted actor had shared a similar sentiment about wanting to be a dad during a December 10 interview with The Hollywood Reporter
