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.
