Sign us up for daddy day care with this guy! Ben Affleck, the proud papa to three beautiful babies with wife of 8 years, Jennifer Garner, is gushing to Us Weekly that “fatherhood has made him richer.”

Ok, seriously, there are so many things to love about Ben. He’s a revered actor, one of the hunkiest Hollywood hotties of our time and a loving husband. The only thing we can find to change about the guy? His diehard loyalty to the Red Sox (Ben, if you’re listening, pick the Yankees. Pick the Yankees! Or the Mets. We’ll even settle for the Mets!).

But the one thing we can’t get enough of is the way he dotes on his kids. He recently spoke candidly to Us about balancing a high-profile career with three growing kids. He called his children his top priority and went on to say, “They’re most important in my life. Family is a wonderful thing, but it doesn’t mean you can’t do other stuff in your life. In fact, having a family makes whatever other thing you have that much richer. If it was just me, I’d be home alone and think, ‘Well, something good happened at work,’ but it’s much nicer to share it with people you love.”

And the beaming daddy didn’t stop there. He also added, “I think anytime you become a richer person you have more substance. I hope that happened to me with having a family, but you never know!” Ben, lets get real. You do know. Life with kids and a family has made you richer. Cha-ching!

Are you touched by Ben’s words? Can you relate?
