British superstar "Naked" chef Jamie Oliver, still barefoot in the kitchen, sums up his experience of entering the realm of parenthood as such: "Becoming a father is the best thing I have ever done. Even before the birth, when Jules was pregnant, I began to think differently – it was less about me and more about the future of my family. I suppose it gives you a different set of priorities.
