Arquette, 32, recently talked to reporters about preparing for fatherhood and getting rid of junk to make room for baby.
Are you and Courteney decorating the nursery yet?
A little bit. Yes.
How has impending fatherhood changed your life?
I have to make room for the baby, so I've been trying to get rid of things. I have tons of collections, books. Some of the toys actually can be recycled and played with.
So what are you getting rid of, exactly?
I have a lot of giant things, like a giant toothbrush and toothpaste. I just don't know if that can stay. I know, it's crazy. I don't understand it either. Most of my stuff is swap-meet stuff.
Are you a big swap-meet guy?
I like them, but I think I'm pretty much banned from going there.
Courteney banned you?
No, no, personal ban. I've got a self-imposed restriction on buying junk. Because I just don't have any more room, and we have a baby coming.
Will you be there with a video camera in the delivery room?
I don't think there will be photographs. I don't know. When you're a celebrity, certain things just aren't appropriate.
