Daniel Radcliffe recently revealed his emotional first year as a father after welcoming a son with his longtime sweetheart Erin Darke last year.

Speaking exclusively to E! News at the Drama League Awards on May 17, the Harry Potter alum gushed about parenthood.

He jokingly said: "Honestly, that I cry a lot more now than I did before, I never thought it would be possible for a creature to make me so tired and me still just love that thing so much."

The English actor responded after he was questioned about the things he learned as part of the role.

Radcliffe expressed his emotions on becoming a father, noting: "It's the best! … It's been a crazy year."

The Lost City actor, who rose to fame at the age of 12, further laid emphasis on the power of women in raising kids of all ages.

He explained: "It's taught me that women are incredible.”

The star spoke highly of his partner, noting: “My partner Erin is incredible. Everything that she has done for him, becoming a [mom] over the last year, has been the most beautiful part of watching this whole thing so far."

On professional front, Daniel debunked all the rumours about returning to the iconic Harry Potter franchise.

He told the outlet: "I don't think so. I think they very wisely want to [have] a clean break. And I don't know if it would work to have us do anything in it…I'm very happy to just watch along with everyone else."
