British movie star Paul Bettany has been given his best review as a dad.

The actor's wife Jennifer Connelly insists her husband is a great father to KAI, her child from a previous relationship, and their son STELLAN, who was born earlier this year (03).

She says, "Paul is amazing. He's taken to fatherhood really well. He's such a natural and really confident with Stellan.

"You see him with a baby and he's just meant to be a dad, clearly, and he just loves him so much. They're really precious together.

"The only thing is that Stellan got sick with his first cold and he had a bit of a fever and he was sneezing and coughing and Paul was just pacing through the house, saying, 'Oh my God, he has a fever, call the doctor.' "
