The actor, who met Luciana Barroso in 2003 and raises four children with her, said that he thinks it is important for his kids to have a "strong" mother.
He told Glamour: "There was something appealing about my wife and that was she didn't need me. I love that she's strong. Strength is a wonderful quality for my daughters to see in the most important woman in their life."
The 40-year-old also insisted that he is happy to just have girls because they give him another "perspective".
When asked if he wants a son, he joked: "No, I hope to still have a marriage."
He then added: "It's a whole different energy being surrounded by women. I am getting a new perspective on the world that I'd have missed if I'd had boys."
