"She's been a reassuring hand," the 42-year-old actor shared. "I'm the one going, 'What about...' and she goes, 'Shut up it's fine.'"

"There was a moment recently when – I said, 'He has a very heavy cold and we’ve got to take him to the doctor,'" Rhys added. "She’s like, 'He has a cold, I’m gonna get my hair blown out.’ I go, 'I’m gonna take him to the doctor.' She went, 'You take him to the doctor and when the doctor tells you he has a light cold, text me.'"
