Anthony Mackie is a daddy to baby No. 3!

The Night Before actor revealed that his wife, Sheletta Chapital, recently gave birth to their third child, which—much like the "becoming an adult" theme of his upcoming movie—changed his perspective on a lot of things.

"I recently had my third kid, and it just messed up everything that was my reality," he revealed to the Los Angeles Times. "It just changes your entire perspective on the world. Even traveling is an issue now — I've got to buy five tickets!"

He continues, I look at my parents — they had six kids. I always wondered why we never took vacations further than Florida or the Gulf Coast — it's like, ‘Oh, because they couldn't afford eight plane tickets, so you just put all the kids in the Lincoln and drive to Florida!'"

Mackie and Chapital secretly married in December 2014 in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and are already parents to two little ones.

The Night Before will hit theaters on Nov. 20.
