Washington: Johnny Depp has revealed that his ‘dream’ is to make his two children happy.

The ``Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides`` actor said the most important wish in his life is for his 12-year-old daughter Lily Rose and nine-year-old son Jack - his kids with long-term partner Vanessa Paradis - to be content.

"As a family man, all you want as a dad, is pure happiness for your kids, that`s a universal sort of parent wish. That`s my dream. Happy kids," Contactmusic quoted him as telling The Independent newspaper.

The 47-year-old actor also revealed that he just wants a calm life without any significant "ups and downs,”

"Smooth sailing, that`s what I hope for. I`m OK with no big ups, no big downs, it`s alright, just full steam ahead, all things well and good," he added.
