Colin Farrell is a proud dad (and a super-hot one too, but we digress).

The actor, who is the new face of Dolce & Gabbana's Intenso cologne, opened up to the brand on what it means to him to be a father (Farrell is dad to James, 12, and Henry, 4)—and we have an exclusive video look at his emotional response.

"It's incredibly complicated, I find it, to be a father because I have no idea what I'm doing," the actor said. "I haven't read any books but I know that if I did they would just confound me even more."

"It can be a terrifying thing—but also there's a great liberation in being a father, if I can speak from a point of self-interest for a second. Because for the first time in your life you are not the most important thing in your world," Farrell continued. "For the first time in your life you really have an understanding of what it is to love unconditionally. And it's a pretty extraordinary gift."

No, we're not crying. There's something in our eyes.

"I enjoy my boys. They're fun. They're good dudes. I have two very lovely, lovely human beings that look to me for help and assistance. Can you imagine? They're doomed," the 39-year-old quipped.
