The Warrior actor was accidentally kicked in the testicles by little Louis, who is now four years old, and was left in "excruciating agony".
He told Esquire magazine: "I managed to survive my entire life without getting kicked in the testicles. And then one day I was changing the nappy of my son. It was a sock dance. I put him on his back and he was moving his feet about. I was like, 'Come on', and he brought his heel down - and clipped the top of my left testicle. It took me to the f***ing floor man."
"I didn't see it coming, I was loose. And I took it straight on. I thought, 'Jesus, that's what it's like to be kicked in the balls.' Excruciating agony. And my son is only a foot-and-a-half long."
Tom was particularly surprised by the pain as he had previously sustained a blow to his manhood that he had expected to cause a lot of discomfort yet felt nothing.
He said: "When I was doing 'Bronson', I was arse-kicked with six guys pretending to kick the s**t out of me in a cage. Bam, bam, bam and this one guy kicked me in the testicles. It was full impact.
"Time slows down when that s**t happens that's serious. I thought, 'Jesus, I'm going to pass out.' Nothing happened. I didn't feel anything. I must have these super-testicles. A year later, my son took me to the floor."
