[Numpy-discussion] Accessing fields of the object stored in numpy array

I have a numpy arrays with datetime objects as:

a = np.array([dt.datetime(2010, 2, 17), dt.datetime(2010, 2, 16),
dt.datetime(2010, 2, 15)])
b = np.array([dt.datetime(2010, 2, 14), dt.datetime(2010, 2, 13),
dt.datetime(2010, 2, 12)])

I want doing a-b should give me days difference as numpy array but I get as:
array([3 days, 0:00:00, 3 days, 0:00:00, 3 days, 0:00:00], dtype=object)
which is a numpy array of timedelta! I can extract days out by using
property days of each, but how I do it in a numpy way may like:
c.days (a numpy array of days difference) like:
array([3, 3, 3])

Any pointers?
