Jake Gyllenhaal on future family plans: ‘That’s all I want, is to be a good husband and a father’

Jake Gyllenhaal opens up to Howard Stern about future family plans amid romance to model Jeanne Cadieu: ‘That’s all I want, is to be a good husband and a father’


Jake Gyllenhaal said he’s focused on family in his future.

The Los Angeles native, 40, appearing on The Howard Stern Show Monday, was asked if he thinks he could be a successful husband and father amid managing his thriving career.

Gyllenhaal responded, ‘That’s all I want – is to be a good husband and a father … that really is what I want.’

Jake Gyllenhaal, 40, said he’s focused on family in his future in an appearance on The Howard Stern Show Monday, amid his romance with model Jeanne Cadieu, 25

Gyllenhaal, who’s been linked to model Jeanne Cadieu, 25, the last three years, added, ‘Now that I have fulfilled a lot of things in my career that I feel comfortable with, I can safely say that. I don’t know if I could have said that before.’

Gyllenhaal noted how he’s observed how his sister Maggie’s life, family and marriage – she and husband Peter Sarsgaard are parents to daughters Ramona, 15, and Gloria Ray, nine – has ‘deepened’ her work.

‘I think there comes a point where you either start getting more shallow or getting more deep in your work,’ the Jarhead actor told the radio icon.

Stern predicted that Gyllenhaal and the French beauty would be getting married, to which the Brokeback Mountain actor said, ‘I love her so much – she’s such a good person.’

Gyllenhaal continued, ‘There’s only so far I’ll go as, you know, in talking about it,’ adding, ‘it’s a choice for both of us.’

The Oscar-nominated actor told Stern he doesn’t think that Cadieu ‘really enjoys, you know, all the other stuff,’ in terms of the limelight of the high-profile relationship, ‘and so that’s part of the reason why I just adore her.’

Gyllenhaal explained the family dynamic at play when Cadieu joined him, his sister and Sarsgaard at the 2021 New York Film Festival for the premiere of Maggie’s new movie, The Lost Daughter.

‘My sister grabbed her, pulled her on that red carpet, which I think neither of us are really inclined to, you know, go on – even me,’ said the actor. ‘And to be there to support my sister was what we’re there to do and I was like, “Oh yeah, this is family.”‘

Gyllenhaal and Cadieu, who also attended the Tony Awards together last month, were first seen with one another in New York City in December of 2018.

The actor appeared to promote his new film The Guilty, which is streaming on Netflix.
