Do­minic Cooper 'sur­prised' he hasn't had kids

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Do­minic Cooper is "sur­prised" he doesn't have "loads" of chil­dren. The 'Preacher' ac­tor - who has been in a re­la­tion­ship with ac­tress Ruth Negga for seven years - ad­mit­ted he is feel­ing broody be­cause all of his friends have kids and start­ing a fam­ily of his own is the only thing miss­ing from his life. He said: "All my friends have kids now. All our dis­cus­sions on Whatas­app re­volve around whether you can fit a buggy on an aero­plane. "Ev­ery­one does things at their own speed, but I'm al­ways quite sur­prised that I don't have loads of kids. There's prob­a­bly one last piece of the jig­saw [miss­ing for me]. There's def­i­nitely some­thing that needs to shift." The 39-year-old ac­tor also con­fessed to be­ing a "ter­ri­ble god­fa­ther" to his best friend James Cor­den's son, six-year-old Max be­cause he al­ways "misses" his birth­day. De­spite his suc­cess, the 'Mamma Mia!' ac­tor ad­mits he still lives in "chaos" and of­ten thinks he should be less in­de­ci­sive, though com­mit­ing to plans still makes him feel un­com­fort­able. He said: "I'm be­com­ing more tur­bu­lent with age. I think I've just be­come more wor­ried about where it's all go­ing. Free­wheel­ing is fine to a point isn't it? And then you go to your­self, 'Make some de­ci­sions'. But even com­mit­ting to a date in time, or an ac­tiv­ity at a cer­tain point in a day [makes me un­easy]. "I'd much rather just see what hap­pens. I'm sur­prised I even have some grounded things like a mort­gage. I've man­aged to keep the out-of-con­trol s**t at bay. Just about. But it's a strug­gle still, this mas­sive chaos." When he was younger, the Bri­tish ac­tor ad­mits he was "con­stantly" in trou­ble at school. He told Red mag­a­zine: "I was con­stantly in trou­ble at school. I didn't like bul­lies, I stood up to them. I was con­stantly in fights. It was grow­ing up in South Lon­don. You had to have a bit of an edge about you."
