USA Today gives us a sneak peek at Eddie’s appearance on the Ellen show today.
Parenting a newborn is hard. Even if you’re a wizard.
Eddie Redmayne, who will be waving his wand in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the movie, and also his own little bundle of magic. In clips from the episode set to air Wednesday, Redmayne talks about his four-and-a-half-month-old daughter, Iris, and all the joy and pain that comes from being a new dad.
“Before you’re a parent you sort of hear people talking about (sleepless nights),” the actor told Ellen. “And then suddenly you’re the guy who’s floating in a constant jet-lag with an I.V. of caffeine. And so I’ve become that person.”
But don’t worry, even though she’s not sleeping through the night yet, Redmayne says Iris is “heaven.” And apparently, as Redmayne explained on the show, she has already successfully flown from the U.K. to Rio. The fact that she was with the entire British Olympic team is just gravy.
