Star of Fifty Shades of Grey and BBC2 drama series The Fall, Jamie Dornan, revealed some intimate details about his private life on This Morning today (9 September).

The Northern Irish actor sat on the big blue couch with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford to discuss some home truths. Looking fashion-forward and youthful in a blue blazer paired with navy trousers and brown suede boots, the 34-year-old divulged what it's like to be a dad.

The father-of-two said: "It's the most magical thing in the world. I'm a young father and I want to spend time with my kids so they come everywhere with me which we can afford to do at the moment before they start school."

Dornan married English actress and singer-songwriter Amelia Warner in 2013, and have two daughters under the age of 3.

The actor – came on the show to discuss his new role in biographical WWII thriller Anthropoid – shot to fame when he played Christian Grey in the movie adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey in 2015. Since then, he has become a global heartthrob with a fan base to rival One Direction's.

Agreeing that worldwide fame can be a burden, Jamie said: "It can be, but that's just one job... to me or any actor that is involved in any franchise, it is just another job and you move on to the next thing."

And Jamie still seems humble despite his huge and sudden success, claiming he worked as a bartender for some time before making it big. He added: "I was modelling first, and worked in a pub in Knightsbridge."

He also claimed that he was a tad lackadaisical as a student, remarking: "When I was at school I was very lazy, it felt like I was there for different reasons than education in a way – I always knew I didn't have the right attitude and temperament to work in an office environment."
