Parenthood is the most beautiful thing ever, says Tom Pelphrey
Tom Pelphrey has found parenthood to be the "most beautiful thing ever".
The 40-year-old actor has revealed that he's loving life with Kaley Cuoco and their daughter Matilda, who was born on March 30.
Speaking about his experience of parenthood, Tom told PEOPLE: "It's amazing. It's heaven, it's challenging at times. It's the most beautiful thing ever."
The 'Ozark' star feels "grateful" to be going through the experience with Kaley, 37, by his side.
He said: "I'm so grateful to have a partner who I love to do it with because just two days with a baby in the house and I think of parents who are raising kids by themselves, and I don't even understand how they do it.
"My respect for single parents has gone through the roof."
Tom has been surprised that fatherhood is so "intuitive".
He added: "There's just something about how to hold her and how to burp her and intuiting what she wants sometimes when she's upset.
"That surprises me because I've been around a bunch of babies and I have nieces that I love that I was pretty comfortable with. But for the most part, it was like, 'Oh, don't hand me that baby. I don't want to break it.' And it hasn't felt that way at all with Matilda. So that's been a surprise in a good way."
Meanwhile, Kaley recently insisted that she's determined to approach motherhood in her own way.
The actress - who is best known for playing Penny on 'The Big Bang Theory' - told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Still haven't read a damn thing.
"We find ourselves in a very natural situation. We're just kind of going with the flow. She really tells us what she wants, it's very clear, it's like one of three things."
