The ‘Dilemma’ star’s wife Kyla Weber gave birth to their first child – Locklyn Kyla Vaughn – in December and the actor is delighted with his new role as a father.
He said: “It gives you a different purpose.
“I’ll tell you… When Kyla and I had the first pediatrician appointment, we gotta get the car seat and put it in the back of the car. Kyla buckled up and I got in the car. And I was like, ‘We’re a family.’ We’re going to an appointment as a family. It’s just a great feeling.”
Vince – who married real estate agent Kyla in January 2010 near his home city of Chicago – has embraced parenthood but admits he can’t help but worry about his daughter.
The 40-year-old funnyman told Canada’s ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “I feel so grateful. You know, my wife’s so great. But I gotta tell you. Just the minute they come out, so beautiful and just so sweet — I was just so glad that everyone was healthy.
“My thing is getting ahead of myself and worrying about stuff. She’s only three weeks old, right?! People are like, ‘Where is she going to college?’ I didn’t even know she wanted to go to college!”
