Orlando’s biggest role to date!
Orlando Bloom wants to be a “hands-on parent”.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor – who has 10-month-old son Flynn with wife Miranda Kerr – admitted spending time with his beautiful wife and baby is more important than everything else in his life, as he always wants to be by the tot’s side.
He told Radio Times magazine: “I just don’t want to be away from him – at all. We are trying to schedule our lives so that, when I’m working, Flynn and Miranda can be with me. And if she’s working I can be with them. Being a hands-on parent is important to me.
“Time with my son has pretty much gazumped everything else that makes me happy. We’ll be going to New Zealand soon for The Hobbit and they’ll all come with me.”
Orlando explained while he is still a fan of extreme sports, he has curbed his passion for thrill-seeking activities since becoming a father.
He added: “I’m much more conscious of my health and safety. I still ride a motorbike and go mountain biking, but I’m quite aware that I do not want to kill myself here. I don’t want to take any risks that could hurt either of them.” Sigh…
