Fabulous at fatherhood! Richard Kind raved about his friend George Clooney’s parenting skills.
“I knew he’d be a good father because everything he does is good,” the Toy Story 3 star, 62, told Us Weekly exclusively at the Beetlejuice Broadway opening on Thursday, April 25. “He is a great dad, a great, great dad as his dad was to him. Just like a father should be.”
Kind, who chose George as his best man when he married Dana Stanley in 1999, isn’t the first famous face to gush over the ER alum’s parenting.
While the Up in the Air actor was open about not wanting to have kids before meeting and marrying the human rights lawyer, 41, he’s now a changed man.
“The first thing you think is, ‘I hope I don’t screw this up,’” he told The Hollywood Reporter in September 2017. “I want them to be happy. I want them to have a sense of humor. I want them to be interested in things. I want them to be compassionate about other people’s plights. Because that’s the thing, you know? You have to have some sort of empathy.”
He added: “I’m a very good diaper guy, which I didn’t expect.”
The Tomorrowland actor showed off pictures of his little ones while attending a Casamigos House of Friends Dinner in June 2018. “George teased that the babies are like models and he never has to show them how to pose because they do it so naturally,” an eyewitness told Us exclusively at the time. “He seemed like the proudest parent and just couldn’t stop showing photos and talking about how much he loves the kids.”
