Dave Grohl has had years of life as a wild rock star. In fact, wild could possibly even be considered an understatement. But according to Grohl, family and kids have calmed the rocker down. So just what does 41-year-old Grohl think about fatherhood? Read more about his love for his kiddos below.

In a recent interview for TIME magazine’s ‘10 Questions’ column, Grohl spoke about his life as a musician and how having children has changed him. He says, “I used to tour nine months out of the year. Now I don’t like being away from my kids for more than 12 days. It’s changed everything that I do. When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It’s inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.”

Grohl has two children with his wife Jordyn Blum Grohl whom he married in 2003. With two daughters, Violet Maye, 3 ½, and Harper Willow, 9 months, Dave is a doting father. Good for Dave! I am sure he is a fabulously cool papa.
