Tom Arnold has fallen more in love with his wife Ashley since they welcomed their first baby boy earlier this month after his lifetime of fertility issues
Tom Arnold felt ''a kind of super love'' for his wife after she gave birth to their first child.
The 54-year-old comedian's wife Ashley Groussman, 37, weclomed a baby boy called Jax Copeland Arnold earlier this month and Tom, who has always battled fertility issues, admits that having a ''miracle'' baby has made their relationship more intimate.
He told People.com: ''I was in shock when I saw him appear because up until that moment, I didn't truly believe it would ever happen. The disappointments. The miscarriages. When you've tried and failed so many times, you eventually accept that it won't happen for you.
''When I held him, I accepted he was real and though he is obviously too good for me, he will never doubt that his father loves him very much. I also felt a kind of super love for Ashley. An intimacy and partnership and accomplishment I did not know possible.''
Tom also revealed that he found it difficult to watch Ashley undergo a C-section but he was eager to watch his child enter the world.
He explained: ''Every man will tell you there's nothing that makes him crazier than seeing the woman you love in pain.
''Most husbands don't want to watch a C-section, but I had to see my child enter this world or I didn't know if it would seem real. He's been on a very long journey. I know he's been in my dreams for 35 years.''
''The 'Sons of Anarchy' star - who was married three times, including to Roseanne Barr, before tying the knot with Ashley in 2009 - said: ''I've worked diligently to become a father for 23 years. Twenty-one cycles of in-vitro with four different women, but the moment Jax was born I realised that this was exactly the way it was meant to be. I was ready because I was healthy and had the perfect partner.''
