Arquette’s ‘parenting instinct’
David Arquette says he is more prepared for becoming a father the second time around.
The Scream actor is expecting a baby boy with his girlfriend Christina McLarty.
David is already a dad to daughter Coco, nine, and he has revealed he feels less stressed this time around.
“I know I’ve done it once so there’s not that fear that a first-time parent has because you just don’t know what to expect,” David told People magazine.
“Animals across the world have babies and they know how to take care of them instinctually. Us humans get so in our heads about it all but as soon as the baby comes it is just instinct.”
David is looking forward to some extra bonding time with Coco during her final months as an only child.
He plans on having her join him on location in the coming weeks.
“Whenever you get to do that you have to take them out of school for a few days, but it’s such a great bonding experience because she gets to see what we do on the set,” he said. “It’ll be a really good time.”
David is currently on location in Puerto Rico for seasons two and three of his TV show Cleaners.
Although his work schedule is hectic, he will find a way to be with Christina when she gives birth.
“I had to make sure they could get out in time long before my baby would be born,” he added.
David had daughter Coco with his ex-wife Courteney Cox, but the couple separated in October 2010 and filed for divorce in June 2012.
