Being a Father Has Given Colin Hanks Deeper Meaning in Life

Colin Hanks is a doting dad

Being a dad for the first time has changed Colin Hanks’s life understandably!

“Since our daughter joined us the spectrum has widened. My job is to recreate moments between people and when you’re able to look at moments differently, you get deeper meaning in things.”

The actor and his wife, Samantha Bryant, welcomed their daughter Olivia Jane five months ago.  Being a father is “adding another dimension” to his life, he told Reuters.

Now that Olivia Jane is five months old, she is starting to respond to her parents which is truly rewarding.

“A baby’s existence for the first three months is a one-way street. One person is doing all the work and the other is crying, sleeping, and pooping,” the Lucky star said.

“So the first moment when you’re actually able to do something and they acknowledge your presence, that’s a big deal. A very big deal.”

Grandpa Tom Hanks is just as in love with their new addition to the family!

“They cannot wait to just dote on this kid with every single fiber of their being,” he says. “My wife and I are more than happy to give them our baby and say, ‘Here, watch her while we take a nap!'”

Take advantage, Colin!
