Daniel Radcliffe wants to have children before 30

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he’d like to have children before turning 30 so he’ll have the energy to run after them.

All of you Harry Potter-loving ladies, we have fantastic news: Daniel Radcliffe is a family man. Swoon away, girls!

But that’s not all! The 23-year-old actor also wants to have kids of his own very soon.

“I’d like to get started on it before my 30s,” Radcliffe told Time Out London magazine. “I like the idea of being a youngish parent so I’ve got energy to play football even though they’ll be better than me by the time they’re four.”

The actor admits that while he wants to be a motivator for his children, he would not push them into the film industry. A sports career, perhaps?

“I will have to find a very tall wife if they’re going to be good at sports,” Radcliffe quipped. “You could be my size as a boxer; you’d just have to be a super featherweight or something.”

Oh yes, let’s not forget that Radcliffe is about 5 feet 5… He’s an adorable pocket-sized man. We kid — that’s still a rather average height. All jokes aside, the actor is still very young, but his longing to have children comes from a very relatable place.

“I’ve grown up around lots of people who were having kids when I knew them, because a lot of them were a lot older than me,” he stated. “And I saw the wonderful change in them. I see that it gives you a sense of purpose that up till now I only really get from work. I want that [purpose].”

We hope Radcliffe can find himself a gorgeous 6-foot-3 woman and produce athletic prodigies.
