Barry Wetcher/Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures/Warner Bros. Pictures © 2018 (NEW YORK) — With the release of his latest film Creed II, Michael B. Jordan fans are getting to see the actor in a totally different light. In the sports action drama, Jordan plays a boxing champion and a new father who must learn how to adapt to a child with a disability.

Although it’s only through the film that Jordan is experiencing fatherhood for the first time, the actor does admit that he definitely wants children of his own one day.

“Of course, you’re in there, you’re with this this infant, this little baby and stuff like that,” Jordan tells ABC Radio. “And I love kids, you know.”

Yet, with no real experience to help him prepare for his fatherly role, Jordan says he was still able to dig deep to find his paternal instincts.

“[I] definitely get into that mind state of being a young father, young dad,” he says. “All of, what would the insecurities be? What would the worries [be]? Like what would Adonis be going through in that moment? So, I definitely felt that.”  

Creed II, also starring Sylvester StalloneTessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad, in now in theaters.
