Ryan Gosling started out his television and film career as a child on the infamous Mickey Mouse Club show alongside Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. He was catapulted into the limelight after playing a lead role in 2004’s blockbuster film The Notebook. Known for his effortlessly cool demeanour, Gosling recently welcomed his second daughter to the world alongside actress girlfriend Eva Mendes. When asked what it was like living in a house where the women to men ratio was down to 3:1 he is reported to have said “It’s heaven. It’s like walking through a field of flowers every day. I live with angels.” Hm, sounds like the words of a sleep-deprived dad alright!

If you’re a young dad you may feel like you’ve grown up alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the child star who became a household name for his part in the late 90’s American comedy series Third Rock from the Sun. Gordon-Levitt is now better known for his roles in popular films like 50/50, 500 Days of Summer, Inception and Looper. The first-time father says his 1 year old son is ‘wonderful’ and makes him ‘very happy’, aw.
