Eddie Redmayne is on top of the world both in his personal and professional life.
The 34-year-old Oscar winner stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show
, airing Wednesday, when he talked about being a first-time father to his daughter, Iris. Redmayne and his wife, Hannah Bagshawe, welcomed her in June.
"She is heaven," Redmayne sweetly gushes.
But the British actor admits he's definitely sleep deprived.
"It's worth it because, occasionally, there's that amazing thing where it's three o'clock in the morning and you go in, and you're sort of gently furious, and then you get a little smile, and your heart breaks a bit, and it's totally worth it," he says.
"When I read this script, I didn't know what to expect and it blew my mind," he says. "There are some great surprises and one wonderful surprise that I'm really excited about."
"You'll be very busy for the next while," DeGeneres comments.
"I might be, yeah. It might be a while," Redmayne agrees.
