London: ‘Pretty Woman’ star Julia Roberts has confessed that her kids are the source for her to learn to enjoy all the small things in life.

She insists their “fascinating” perspective on the world awes her.

Roberts has admitted that since becoming mum to son Henry, two, and five-year-old twins Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus Walter, she has learned to appreciate the ‘chaos’ of everyday life.

"They are really angelic and wondrous. (It’s) so heavenly and kind and dear and just to have that - the chaos that goes on in our house and then the quietude that goes on... the Daily Star quoted her as telling TV host Oprah Winfrey.

“My favourite thing is just watching them wake up and watching them realise the day come upon them. It’s just - I don’t know. It’s fascinating to me

"That’s the thing about being new to the world, you’re just so present and impressed with everything... The older you get and the grumpier you get, (it’s like), ``we’ve got to get there. We’re going to be late.`` You know, they’re in the car; ``Look at the tree!`` Everything is exciting,” she added.
