The last time Tim Allen had to get ready to be a dad was 20 years ago, before daughter Katherine was born. And now the Home Improvement star, 55, isn’t quite sure how to handle fatherhood this time around!


"We’re both really excited about it but things have changed," he tells Extra of expecting a baby with wife Jane Hadjuk. "It’s overwhelming. There’s so much stuff to look at!"


And while being a father again might be a heady experience, there’s one experience no parent wants to go through – the loss of a child. Father to father, Tim offered a message of condolence for his Wild Hogs co-star, John Travolta, on the tragic passing of his son, Jett.


"We sent him a message from our family and I sent a personal email to him. He loved that boy and that family loved that boy. That’s all he talked about on the set," he says. "He was so proud of him. It broke my heart. It’s terrible news and there’s nothing you can say that’s helping. I just hope somewhere they find clarity and peace."
