When it comes to fatherhood, Matthew McConaughey certainly isn’t dazed and confused. In fact, the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star — who shares kids Levi Alves McConaughey, 11, Vida Alves McConaughey, 9, and Livingston Alves McConaughey, 6, with wife Camila Alves — is one of Hollywood’s most doting daddies!

We’ve come to know and love him for starring in tons of hit movies over the years, but the 49-year-old hunk once gushed that his favorite role to play is dad to his three kiddos. “It’s the one thing I’ve always wanted to be,” he told GQ in November 2014. “Never is a man more of a man than when he is the father of a newborn … You know what’s important.”

Matthew adorably added that becoming a dad completely changed him. “I definitely got more selfish,” he told the outlet back then. “And at the same time, I think I got more compassionate.”
