Michael Keaton made it famous, Lonestar sang about it and Keith Urban recently played the card, but isn't being "Mr. Mom" simply being dad? You don't hear working women say they are "Mrs. Dad" while at the office. Are we, as a society, as laughable as Jack Butler's antics in the 1983 flick? Like many fathers, Keith Urban relishes spending time with his new bundle of joy, two-month-old Sunday Rose. He told CMT Insider:
"When my wife's working and I've got time off, I'm just Mr. Mom during the day, taking care of the little girl," said Urban, 40, who also called fatherhood "beautiful."
Of course, the proud papa is referring to his taking on the primary caretaker role while his wife, Nicole Kidman, is filming a movie, but since when is tending to one's own tot not just considered daddy duty?
What's your opinion?
