Actor Boris Kodjoe is a family man. The father of two recently sat down with ClutchMagazine to talk about his new move called “All About Us” and to talk about fatherhood:

Clutch: Since the movie is essentially about family, let’s talk about that. You and your wife (Nicole Ari Parker) are the proud parents of two beautiful children (Sophie, 3 and Nicolas, 1). What has fatherhood been like for you?

Boris: It’s absolutely amazing. It’s turned my life upside down. I could have never imagined it having such an impact, but it’s been the best experience of my life. It’s amazing every day. When you see those little people grow up and you start to notice little things in their personalities that remind you of yourself and your wife. They’ve taught me so much about myself and what’s truly important in life. Children give you invincibility in a way. Because all of a sudden, everything else becomes so unimportant and falls by the wayside. It makes you very relaxed about everything else. It takes the pressure off, but at the same time, it gives you a newfound purpose. It’s funny because we’re always talking about how we never remember what we were doing before kids. There was really no purpose in doing what we were doing, until we had children.

Clutch: Is it difficult juggling your home life with your hectic work schedule?

Boris: It’s a challenge; it’s harder sometimes than others. But I have an amazing wife who is on the same page when it comes to family. We decided that family comes first and that everything else comes second. So once you make that choice, it becomes a little easier because you’ve stripped yourself of those anxieties of not being in LA so much or not getting a certain job. All that stuff becomes unimportant very quickly. Once you embrace family and your kids and marriage, that becomes the nucleus of your life. Everything else happens sort of by itself. Everything falls into place.

Clutch: Are you shooting throughout the summer? Are there any Kodjoe family vacations coming up soon?

Boris: Right now my wife is shooting in LA so we’re here with her. We’ll probably go to Boston where I filmed another movie, and we’re going to spend a bunch of time in Atlanta—where our main residence is. That’s always family time when we’re back in Atlanta. It’s all about the kids and us. It’s peaceful and you get to exhale and do one thing every day. Everything is constantly about family.
