Actor Jason Biggs has been a father for a little over a month now, but he says he already fully appreciates fatherhood. “What I’m learning – and what’s interesting – is that my wife has changed completely, and I’m sure I have too,” he told People at the PaleyFest Orange is the New Black panel in Hollywood last Friday. Biggs and his wife, Jenny Mollen will be celebrating their six- year anniversary soon.

What are some ways to prepare yourself for being a first-time parent?

Cupid’s Advice:

Becoming a parent for the first time is a life changing experience. You won’t know what you’re doing for awhile, but you’ll pick up the new baby duties in no time. There are a few things you can do that will help you ease into the transition a little more smoothly. Cupid has some tips:

1. Read: Go to your local library or bookstore, and find some parenting books to read. There are so many different ones to choose from. If you need a little help with reducing the selection, ask a loved one to assist you. Maybe they’ll have a few favorites of their own if they’ve already been through your experience before.
