On what he hopes to give Dannielynn for her first birthday:
"Give her another happy day in life. I know she's not going to understand everything that's going on but just something that she can say one day, 'Wow, what a cool party, what a cool dad!'"
On if Dannielynn is starting to talk:
"We've heard her say "da-da" a few times."

On keeping her mother and brother's memories alive:
"I show her pictures all the time and I say, 'This is your mommy and this is your brother Daniel.' We talk about them all the time."
On whether she resembles her late brother Daniel:
"Yeah, sometimes. Especially when she gets out of the bath and her hair is parted to the side like a little boy, she looks a lot like Daniel."
