"I'm so lucky to get to do work that I love to do — working on a show like 'The Night Shift' is a blessing and I love it — but my home life, my family, my wife and kids are just the best thing that ever happened to me," Wolf explained during a Thursday morning visit to TODAY.

The actor and his wife, Kelley, celebrated their 13th anniversary last month, and he's not at all surprised that they've stayed by each other's side for so long.

After all, he learned the secret to finding the perfect partner before they said "I do."

Happy lucky 13th my love. I adore you now more than ever. You make life wonderful. 💝

"You know what my nana said years ago? She said marry the person you want to see across the breakfast table every morning," he recalled. "And that's the person I want to see across the breakfast table every morning."

Of course, these days, there are a few more faces around the table.

"We've got three beautiful kids who are just the most magical little creatures in the world," the proud father raved.

Zenning out on spring break. Thank you Santa Fe, NM.

So while showbiz has its appeal, for Wolf, it's nothing compared to making it as a family man.

"Really happy," he said, summing it all up. "It's the thing I'm most proud of. It's the thing that brings me the most joy in my life."
