James Corden says fatherhood has been a shock to him

James Corden has admitted becoming a father has been a shock and joked "it's nothing but annoying".

The Gavin And Stacey star - whose fiancee Julia Carey gave birth to their son Max in March - admitted to Xfm radio presenter Danny Wallace he was struggling to get used to the new arrival.

James said: "For a while it's nothing but annoying and then slowly and surely in around three months when you get a smile you go, 'Aww, actually you're all right'."

He admitted: "Let's be honest - I'm fed up of these guys who go, 'Aww! The minute I held it in my arms, I just knew I'd jump in front of a bus for it.' No you didn't. A parked bus maybe."

The 32-year-old actor also told Xfm's news presenter Matt Dyson that having a baby would "ruin his life".

And James said he is still coming to terms with his son sleeping in the same room.

He revealed: "He still sleeps in the room which was a shock to me when Jules asked where we were going to put the cot. I was like, 'Well, in the other room'.

But he added: "My girlfriend, or should I say fiancee, is a wonderful mum - the best person I could have chosen to have had a child with - she is amazing."

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped.

Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
