Fatherhood gave me new perspective: Johnny Depp

Depp has a 12-year-old daughter Lily-Rose and a son Jack who's 9.

London: Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp says that fatherhood has inspired him more than anything in his life and has given him a new perspective on the world. The 48-year-old says after his daughter Lily-Rose, now 12, was born the appetite he previously had for late nights evaporated, reported Daily Star.

Depp also has a nine-year-old son Jack with his long-term partner Vanessa Paradis.

"It was having children that woke me up. To fall in love, to that degree, to fall in love with ... these little angels. Who didn't ask to arrive, but who arrived anyway. That was just huge for me. It was like the uplifting of a veil. There was something that it gave me, for the very first time in my life. Clarity," Depp said.

The actor developed a hard partying reputation in the 90s when he was engaged to actress Winona Ryder and then in a four-year relationship with supermodel Kate Moss. Depp has been with French singer-and-actress Vanessa since 1998.
