Actor Josh Lucas split from his wife Jessica at the beginning of the year, but the two have kept things amicable. The celeb dad says they’ve now found their co-parenting groove and things are fantastic when it comes to parenting their son Noah, 2.
Josh Lucas had a whirlwind trip into fatherhood and marriage in 2012. He married his wife Jessica in March and they welcomed their son Noah in June. Less than two years later the couple went their separate ways. Josh opened up about the divorce and how fatherhood has changed him completely.
On divorce with kids involved: “We have been through a divorce and divorce isn’t something I would wish on my worst enemy,” Lucas says. “Even when in our case we have managed to do it not only amicably but as — hopefully in the end — great friends, particularly because we have a young child that we both truly love.”
Josh gushes that son Noah (who will turn 2 this summer) has changed it all – for the better. “My becoming a father has changed absolutely everything in my life, period. I am more and more wanting to be a part of things that [are] playful and more the things I see my son really responding to and enjoying.”

The actor said he thought people were exaggerating when they gushed about parenthood being the best thing you could ever do. “My wife and I always joked about the fact that we thought people were just drinking the Kool-Aid, like the whole thing was a scam. From day one it’s the most amazing thing. I will go sleepless and die for this child already.”
Josh is anxious for his little guy to grow, but is enjoying the little things right now. He says that at 10 weeks, “I’m still dealing with a blob. I’m still dealing with something that’s just now beginning to communicate through smiling and through these magical little moments that happen only very briefly through the day.”

It looks like 2012 is so far becoming an eventful year for actor Josh Lucas! A rep for the “Sweet Home Alabama” cutie confirms that Josh secretly tied the knot last week to his fiancé, Jessica and that the couple are indeed expecting their first child together.
The actor – who has been linked to Hollywood beauties such as Rachel McAdams and Salma Hayek in the past – refused to give any more details about his nuptials or about his new wife’s pregnancy.
Fortunately for Josh though, he has quite a bit of experience when it comes to raising children, having had raised his ex-girlfriend’s son. He says:
“When I was 19 years old I met an 18-year-old woman with a seven-month-old baby and I’ve raised him ever since… We didn’t know each other that well and we were raising a family together.
“He was learning to walk and talk and ride a bike. He was going through breastfeeding and I’m saying to myself, ‘How am I here? What is this about?’ But it’s been one of the greatest experiences of my life and I’m grateful for it to say the least.”
It sounds like he is going to be a great father. Congrats to the happy couple!
