Orlando Bloom is spending as much time with his son as possible
The 34-year-old actor recently welcomed his and his wife Miranda Kerr`s first child Flynn into the world and he insists he is a very hands-on dad and is loving every minute of fatherhood.
During an appearance on British breakfast TV show `Lorraine`, he said: "It`s great, I love it - I`ve been bathing with him a lot recently, it`s been really cute. It`s a really nice little moment."
Orlando admits it was a shock when he finally got to meet his son in January and he thinks women are more prepared for the birth because the baby grows inside them.
He added: "It`s mad because as a woman you carry the baby for nine months so you`re very conscious that you have a little one inside you. "But for a guy it`s like suddenly there`s a baby there. It`s like what, whoa? But he`s amazing. Fatherhood`s fantastic, that`s the big role."
The British star has just completed new movie `The Three Musketeers` and he insists he is attracted to roles that frighten and challenge him.
Orlando - who is best known for his role as the heroic Will Turner in the first three `Pirates of the Caribbean` films, in which he started alongside Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley - said: "It`s really if the script is good and the character is good and the people involved are interesting. Anything that terrifies me I`m really up for.
"I just finished `The Three Musketeers`. That was great, it was a lot of fun. I got to play the Duke of Buckingham and it was so much fun. I sort of saw him as a big, overgrown petulant child."
