Matt Damon is what you might call the perfect storm of celebrities. Not only is he a talented actor and a gifted screenwriter, he’s also a philanthropist, a husband and a loving dad.
With his wife, Luciana, Matt is raising four daughters: Alexia, 13 (Luciana’s child from a previous marriage), Isabella, 6, Gia, 4, and little Stella, who turns 2 this month. He’s spoken often about his pride in his quiet home life and in being a father who makes it a point to pick his children up from school.
He also takes them along on fun press junkets. This week, he’s in New York promoting his new film, Argo, directed by best bud (and fellow dad) Ben Affleck. Matt was sighted taking a walk with little Stella, who seemed happy to be out with her dad, but maybe not so much the followed-by-photographers part.
The movie is based on an improbable-but-true story that takes place during the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-81. A group of six American hostages hiding in a Canadian embassy helps plot an escape with the help of a CIA operative who has them pose as members of a film crew.
Stella won’t be watching the movie for many years yet, but that’s okay. Being with Dad is all that matters right now.
See the cutie and her equally cute dad here!

Hands-on dad 3 of 5Matt takes his job as a father very seriously. He has said that the first item on his "bucket list" is to raise his four daughters to be "strong, good women."
Watch it, pal! 4 of 5Stella seems to be warning passersby that she's displaying a bit of an attitude. But don't you love the purple sneakers?
Going cognito 5 of 5Although some stars preserve their privacy by wearing sunglasses in public, Matt has no problem being recognized - even on the streets of New York.
