The director and actors admits that he's missing one thing in his life: children.
See what we’re chatting about over coffee:
• In a candid interview with daytime TV’s new ratings king, Steve Harvey, director and actor Tyler Perry admits there’s one thing he has yet to accomplish in his life—fatherhood. “I know I would be a great father,” said Perry. “I don’t want to work this hard, I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know, that as hard as I’m working—doing 20 hours a day—now is not the time.” Perry hopes that in two years, at age 45, he will finally be ready to settle down and have kids. But until then, he says he’s enjoying the busy schedule and enjoying being a bachelor. [The Steve Harvey Show]
