Happy news for Glee’s Matthew Morrison! The actor, who also recently appeared on Grey’s Anatomy (perhaps in an audition for the new fire fighter-theme spinoff?), and his wife have just revealed that they’re expecting their first child, and their joy couldn’t be sweeter.

Matthew Morrison and Renee Puente

The 38-year-old actor who played Glee’s beloved teacher, Will Schuester, is beyond thrilled to be welcoming a little one into the world with his wife of two and a half years, Renee Puente. “I’m so excited, and I just want to be the best father I possibly can be,” the actor admitted to People in this week’s issue, adding that he’s “looking forward to everything” about fatherhood.

With the new family member due in the fall, Morrison mused, “The fact that it’s half me and half the person that I love most in this world … I’m so excited to meet our child and to see what he or she looks like, and to see what features of my beautiful wife that he or she has.” No doubt this will be one ADORABLE (and wildly loved) little one.

The star also added a sweet video to Instagram with a message to fans saying, “Our #MorrisonAdventures have been so epic together, but they have only just begun!! We will have a new addition to the family and I’m blown away by the unconditional love that I already possess for this child. I have such a clear vision of the father that I want to be, but the perfection lies in the balance and teamwork that Renee and I have cultivated. Now, we simply wait with open arms…. Thank you @noelmaitland and @isaaccohenphotography for this awesome video!”

Congratulations to the growing family!
