I am at the best phase of my life as I am seeing my daughter grow. I spend more time with her. I didn't take up any work after my daughter was born. I have an 8 months old daughter I want to be there for her.

Fatherhood has made me more responsible and sensitive to people. I was very notorious and now I think I have calmed down a lot. I spend most of my time being with her. Now I don't take a vacation or travel.
