Speaking in an interview for "TV Insider," the doting father revealed one key takeaway of the book.
"Overall, kids have to be your priority when you’re a parent. Be accountable. If I ever left town to go do a movie, I’d realize it’s more important to be there for my kids. There’s no greater reward."
Diamont also explained in another interview that he was able to give his children more time because he worked in a daytime show that had a nine-to-five styled work schedule. "My wife and I are homebodies," he stated, before suggesting that his work has allowed him to have a "normal" life.
The actor made his TV debut with a role on "Days of Our Lives," after which he switched to "The Young and the Restless." He also played an iconic role of Bill Spencer Jr. in 1987's "The Bold and the Beautiful."
