Tom Hanks only increased his image as one of the nicest men in when he was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards.

During his acceptance speech, he fought back tears as he praised his family, giving thanks to his wife and 'five kids.'

And while it turns out he really only has four children, a source told People that the actor likes to include his son Colin's wife, Samantha Bryant, as his second daughter.
