Fatherhood has driven funnyman Jack Black to tears – of sentimentality.

"I cry all the time. I always cry at movies and sometimes even cry at ads," the actor tells the October issue of British Cosmopolitan.

"The other day I was watching one for a cereal," he continues. "The father's trying to feed the baby and it calls him mama. He keeps going, 'It's dada.' I came over all sniffly because it happened to me! Sammy (his 2-year-old son) didn't call me dada for ages."

Earlier this year Black, 39, became a father of two when his wife Tanya Haden, 36, gave birth to son Tommy. "It was great," he tells the magazine. And naturally: "I cried!"

And what about the difficulties of being a dad? "The only negative is that you spend a lot of time worrying about this delicate little life," he says. "I didn't know I could feel so much, and was surprised by my own awesome heart."
