Since becoming a dad back in April, Josh Altman's life has completely changed. And from the sound of it, it's for the better. You see, little Alexis Kerry Altman has been good for the Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles agent in many ways.
"So since I have had my baby daughter, we've sold more real estate in the past six months than we've ever sold in our entire life," he shared with The Daily Dish with a little laugh. "I don't know if that's changed me, but let's put it this way: in the past 100 days, we've sold $200 million worth of real estate. So I don't know if she's my good luck charm or what, but it's working well."
Besides her uncanny and innate ability to help her pop's business, it also sounds like she's softened him a bit as well. "But as a person how has it changed me? Your priorities change very quick and you realize what's important in life. She's the best. I love rushing home and hugging her and holding her and kissing her. And I can't wait for all the new experiences of her growing up. And I hope it doesn't happen too fast, 'cause that's what everybody tells me — it happens too fast."
Little Alexis is the first child for Josh and his wife, Heather Bilyeu Altman. They welcomed her into their lives the same month they celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary and Josh is still adjusting to life as a dad. "It's a learning experience. I have zero advice for anybody out there that's going through the same thing 'cause I'm not even going to pretend that I know what I'm doing. But when you're doing it with somebody you love, you got to just swing it and hope for the best."
He continued, "And we have great family support, which is nice. My parents have been waiting for a grandchild for a long time, so they're super excited. And [there are] a lot of late nights and early mornings, so a lot more lack of sleep than typical. But I'm kind of used to that."
And the new dad is finally getting to the good stuff when it comes to how he interacts with his little girl. "But now she's seven months old, so the first six months is a little difficult because there's not much you can do as the father, just help support. But once you hit like that six-month mark and she starts to smile and know who you are and it's really becoming like a little person, it's the greatest thing in the world."
