He humorously commented on the challenges of parenting an infant, saying, “She’s eight months [old], and you kind of forget how much babies kinda suck." Despite the jest, Driver expressed a heartwarming preference from his daughter, noting she seems to favor him more than his six-year-old son did during infancy.

Reflecting on his son's earlier years, Driver shared, “He didn’t want anything to do with me for the first three years”.
