Russell Brand can't wait to be a dad.

The 41-year-old actor, currently expecting his first child with fiancée Laura Gallacher, opened up to ES Magazine about how he's preparing himself for fatherhood.

"I feel lit up by the idea," he shared. "I'm very excited about becoming a dad and I'm preparing myself. I am just getting ready to be with a new little person and see what it is they want."

One thing he's not too concerned about preparing for, however, is his baby's sex.

"I might never find out," he joked. "I may never look."

The Get Him to the Greek star confirmed that Gallacher was pregnant in July, months after rumors started to swirl that the two were expecting. The couple, who rekindled their romance in 2015, recently moved from London to Henley-on-Thames, England, where Brand seems to be enjoying the country life.

"[Laura is busy] decorating the nursery," he said of their recent change of pace. "Around domestic issues, my vote is often secondary… or the vote my gender, at least, so I will just wait to see what is determined."
