Washington: Orlando Bloom has said that he wants to be a “hands-on parent” to his 10-month-old Flynn, as the tot has “gazumped” everything else in his life.
The actor, who is married to Australian model Miranda Kerr, admitted that he always wants to be by his son’s side.
“I just don`t want to be away from him - at all. We are trying to schedule our lives so that, when I`m working, Flynn and Miranda can be with me. And if she`s working I can be with them. Being a hands-on parent is important to me,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Radio Times magazine.
“Time with my son has pretty much gazumped everything else that makes me happy. We`ll be going to New Zealand soon for `The Hobbit` and they`ll all come with me.”
Orlando also explained while he is still a fan of extreme sports, he has curbed his passion for thrill-seeking activities since becoming a father.
“I`m much more conscious of my health and safety. I still ride a motorbike and go mountain biking, but I`m quite aware that I do not want to kill myself here. I don`t want to take any risks,” he added.
