Indeed it is one of the rarest things that we come across actor Jake Gyllenhaal talking about his personal life and plans about kids, isn't it? But, he is ready for fatherhood.
Speaking with British Vogue, the actor opened up about his dreams of starting a family, revealing that he sees kids in his future.
"Yes, of course I do. I definitely do," his response began, noting that his ideals on fatherhood are mirrored in his character from the play Sunday in the Park with George. "The act of making love to make a child…the real thing is life. You get to the end of the show and that's what it's about. Children. Children and art." This isn't the first time that Gyllenhaal has expressed interest in being a dad. In a July interview with Sunday TODAY's, he said, "I do hope to be a father one day."
Still discussing children and art with the U.K. outlet, Gyllenhaal also revealed that he's "lightened up" in recent years and has been focusing his energy on his relationships—particularly with his girlfriend Jeanne Cadieu, who he has been romantically linked to since December.
"Seeing life as something that is, you know, fleeting, and the world being as it is now," he began, "I've turned to my family, I've turned to my friends and I've turned to love. I'm a little less interested in the work, I would say, and more interested in that."
In fact, the star admitted that he's "neglected" his personal life in a way by prioritizing his career. "That's the struggle all the time," he said. "I'm interested in my life, even more so than my work. I've reached a point in my career where I feel hungry in a different way. I've seen how much of my life I've neglected as a result of being committed to that work and that idea."
Gyllenhaal recently starred in Spiderman: Homecoming with leading man Tom Holland.
We hope to see his plans come true soon, isn't it?
