You may think being a new parent is all hearts, sparkles, and cuddles, but if you've ever actually been a new parent, you know that's not all it is! Although Mark McGrath is dealing with baby fluids galore in the thick of fatherhood with 7-month-old twins Lydon Edward and Hartley Grace, and it's been the best thing to even happen to him.
"I’ve been a little selfish in my life, I’m not going to lie,” McGrath, 42, told People Friday in Las Vegas.
"I’ve had a lot of incredible things happen in my life. I didn’t have to do things that I didn’t want to do and people handed me things. Now, it’s all about my children. I’m a part of their world now. There’s no place for my selfishness or my little qualms. They’ve made me selfless."
Formerly the Sugar Ray frontman, McGrath is now a "master diaper changer" and totally hands-on daddy. "I’ll get poop under my nails-there’s no mystery there," he admitted with a laugh.
Another great thing about being Lydon and Hartley's papa? McGrath has fallen in love with his fiancee all over again…and again…and again.
"The kids have made me really fall in love with my fiancée," he said. "I’ve been with her on and off for 16 years. Relationships hit rough patches and it takes work to keep that love alive, but now I look at her and I’m like, 'Wow, you are gangster — I love you.' I’m so happy to be with her. When I see her now, it just refortifies that love."
