Forty year old actor Matt Damon has confessed that his wife Luciana now calls him “red alert” since having children together. Apparently the actor is overprotective with his girls. During a round of promotions for his upcoming film Contagion, Damon explained the story behind his nickname.

“I’m probably more protective than I’ve ever been now that I have children,” the Good Will Hunting vet stated. “My wife [Luciana]‘s nickname for me is ‘Red Alert. I sometimes check to see if the kids are breathing.”

Together Damon and his wife Luciana have four girls. Recently giving birth to ten month old Stella, the two also have three year old Gia, Isabella, who is now five years old and twelve year old Alexia. That’s a handful!

“I tend be a little overprotective without trying to be a helicopter parent,” Damon explains.

In other news – the now bald Matt Damon, who shaved it all off for his latest movie role, was spotted grabbing ice cream in West Vancouver. Filming on his latest movie project, Elysium, Damon is said to be staying in the area with his wife and kids. They all reportedly stopped in for a treat, causing a stir among all of the employees and locals, who were said to be star struck, according to the Vancouver Sun.

“He’s really, really famous and they said he’s better looking than he looks in his photos and he’s extremely nice.” The star is said to be living in the area until he wraps filming on the Neill Blomkamp directed flick, with co-star Jodie Foster, on September 27th.
