The Sheffield-born golfer is the first Englishman to win the coveted green jacket for 20 years - and only the second to do so.
Danny Willett said his success may change things "a little bit" in normal walks of life.
US Masters champion Danny Willett has said he is looking forward to spending time with his family - including changing nappies - after returning to the UK.
Willett - the first Englishman to claim the green jacket since Nick Faldo in 1996 - returned home on Tuesday and said he hopes he will be able to keep some normality in his life despite his new-found fame.
The 28-year-old from Sheffield said it had been a "tough week" being away from his wife and newborn son and he was "really looking forward to getting back".

Defending champion Jordan Spieth admitted he would struggle to forget how his poor finish had left the destiny of the 80th Masters up in the air.
Spieth held a four-shot lead with two holes to play on a windswept day at Augusta National, but bogeyed the 17th and double bogeyed the 18th after wild drives to card a 73 and finish three under par, just a shot ahead of fellow American Smylie Kaufman.
''I just have to absolutely throw it away, the finish to this round, pretend it's a new round, everyone is tied and you have to shoot the best score to win," said Spieth, who is aiming to become the fourth player after Jack Nicklaus, Sir Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods to win back-to-back titles.
"(I have to) understand it's the position I wanted to be in after 54 holes and not think about the finish to this round.' It's going to be very difficult. I played the last three holes, the last two days, five over par. There was no challenge in those holes really.
"If I'm at five, six under, that certainly brings anyone who is over par almost out of the tournament. And now with very little wind (on Sunday), someone gets on a run and shoots six, seven under, I know I have to shoot a significant under par round in order to win this tournament, when I could have played a different style of golf like I did on Sunday last year."
Asked how he would clear his head, Spieth joked: "Probably go break something really quick, have dinner and watch a movie. I think it will be tough personally. That wasn't a fun last couple holes to play from the position I was in."
Defending champion Jordan Spieth assumed his customary position on top of the leaderboard with a brilliant 66 in the 80th Masters on Thursday.
Spieth, who was second on his debut in 2014 and claimed a first green jacket with a record-breaking performance 12 months ago, carded six birdies and no bogeys despite swirling winds on the opening day at Augusta National.
The 22-year-old, who is looking to become just the fourth player after Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods to successfully defend the year's first major championship, led from start to finish after an opening 64 last year and w as quickly into his stride with birdies on the third, sixth and eighth to move into the outright lead.
Another birdie on the 10th was followed by crucial par saves from the trees on the 11th and over the green on the 12th, before the US Open champion two-putted the 13th for birdie.
Spieth, who set records for the highest number of birdies (28) and lowest 36 and 54-hole totals in Masters history last year, understandably kissed his putter in delight after ho ling from 15 feet for par on the 16th.
And the world number two then finished in style with a birdie from five feet on the last to reach 29 under par for his nine competitive rounds at the Masters. Assuming he is not overtaken, his leaderboard position after each of those rounds will read 12-3-1-2-1-1-1-1-1.
