WENN 1 / 9

Reporting by ETOnline.com

It's been almost two weeks to the day since Bruce Willis welcomed his new daughter, Mabel Ray, to the world and the four-time-father is still shining with that proud-papa glow.

Willis calls the bouncing baby girl a reawakening of sorts, telling ET that fatherhood has given him a new zest for life.

"You just forget how much fun it is and how cool it is," Willis says. "There are a lot of things that I'm reminded of that regular life knocks out of you."

The new dad arrived to our interview for the hotly-anticipated action flick, "GI Joe: Retaliation," out June 29, admittedly sleep deprived, but Willis says he wouldn't have it any other way.

"I didn't get to bed till 9am…[Lately] I'm just up wandering around with her…It just calms you down. It calms me down, anyway."
