Jake Gyllenhaal has the magic touch with kids, according to his actress sister Maggie.

“He’s great with kids – it comes naturally to him,” 'The Dark Knight' actress tells the August issue of Marie Claire.

“He really has that touch.”

Jake is often seen with girlfriend Reese Witherspoon and her children Ava and Deacon, while Maggie is herself mum to daughter Ramona, who turns two in October, with fiance Peter Sarsgaard.

“I’ve spent all my time learning how to be a mother and make a home with a child,” she reveals.

“When Ramona [was first born], I didn’t know what I was doing.”
