Who knows? I've always wanted to have children, but when the holidays are here and I'm around kids more, I'm like, do I really want a kid?

"It's great to be able to enjoy them and then I'm like, okay, bye! Although when I'm 80 years old, I'm going to want kids and grandkids. That would be awesome."

The star also admitted that he loves nothing more than staying at home and cooking with Renee. He commented: "In a business sense, it's important to be seen at some of [the parties] and speak with people you could work with in the future. But I'd much rather be at home with Renee.
