Daniel Powter has said he believes he's found the right balance when it comes to juggling being a rock star and changing nappies.
The Canadian singer-songwriter, best known for his 2005 hit Bad Day, said he's never been as happy as he is now that he is a dad.
"I've really grown up and I have both feet on the ground but I still have that edgy thing where I pretend that I'm a rock star," said the father-of-two.
"I love to pretend that I'm a rock star, then I go home and change my baby's diaper. It's that balance I have in my life. It feels really good."
Daniel also revealed inspiration for new music sometimes strikes when he is doing household chores, like washing up.
"I'm just like a regular dude," he said.
He continued: "When I made the first record I was a little bit spoiled and a little bit self-centred and a bit of a brat really, and I think I needed five years off. I needed to grow up a little bit.
"When I re-evaluate what I wanted to do in my life, I ended up getting back home and going through a rather nasty two-and-a-half year divorce.
"I started writing the songs as a cathartic way of making me feel better, so I made a conscious decision to write about the good things in my life and not so much focus on everything that's sort of dark and wrong with me. It's like anything else. When you focus on things that are good, things start to turn around."
