Olsen is a softie

Olsen admits that the emotional intensity of fatherhood was the biggest surprise to him, which made him a softie after the birth of his son. He said:

I’m such a sucker for that kid when he smiles. He squints his eyes and he gets this big gummy smile, and it’s just emotions I didn’t know I had. I’ve become such a softie. I get tears in my eyes, and I get all excited. It’s just that’s not who I am.

The actor says his NCIS: Los Angeles co-stars Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J have been his role models in the daddy area, adding that he gets great advice from them.

We wish Olsen and his family all the best!
