Tobey Maguire is an "excellent dad," according to his "Spider-Man 3" co-star James Franco.
Franco, who plays Harry Osborn in the superhero franchise, says he has seen a new side to Maguire since the arrival of his daughter Ruby in November.
Franco told PEOPLE magazine: "It's strange, because I've known Tobey about six or seven years, and to see him grow over those years, I'm really proud of him. He seems like he's an excellent dad. He's completely consumed with that child."
Ruby and Maguire's fiancee Jennifer Meyer have accompanied the actor all over the world while he promotes "Spider-Man 3."
Franco is not the only one impressed by Maguire's parenting skills. Rosemary Harris, who plays the web-slinging hero's Aunt May in the comic book movies, describes the 31-year-old as a "natural father."
She added: "Ruby looks just like Tobey. She's a happy little baby with her dimples. He's a kind, loving person. The baby seems to be traveling well. Jennifer looks radiant.
"It's lovely having a baby with you on tour. It's easier at that age, and I think it's wonderful that they're bringing Ruby with them."
