Patrick recently attended a forum for parents and he talked about his journey as a father along with his struggles in raising his daughters. He said that when a man isn’t a father yet, they think that it’s a hard job especially the sleepless nights and changing of diapers among others. But according to the actor, when you are already there, it isn’t that bad. You will get tired of course, but it’s all worth it.
