FATHERHOOD THOUGHTS

Joshua opened up about their fourth daughter Charlie as an unexpected addition to a family composed of boys. When Tobe was pregnant with Charlie, she was worried the child would be a boy.

Eventually, the couple welcomed a girl, changing the dynamics of the family. Josh said Cooper and Crew were enthusiastic about meeting their little sister, but Cash was not on board with them.

Joshua recalled Cash being adorably bossy and made rules about where his little sister could stay in the house. Cash also attempted to name their daughter "Princess Pickle."

Amid the bossiness of Cash, he later warmed up to Charlie. Besides that, Joshua also admitted that he had no idea how to dress his daughter and style her hair.

The couple raised their three sons and provided things that suited the kids' needs. Joshua noted their lifestyle consisted of wearing ballers and flat brim hats.

Luckily, Tobe laid out her long-term vision about Charlie's future, such as enrolling her in a dance class. However, Joshua thought his daughter would grow up to become "tough as nails."

The veteran actor described their little girl as a "blessing." While he and his wife look after their sons' needs, Joshua seems extra protective of Charlie.

He joked that he would not allow his little daughter to go on a date in the future. The actor said, "No one else need apply because it's not gonna happen [sic]!"
