The 38-year-old actor announced in an interview with People that wife Renee Morrison, nee Puente, is pregnant and expecting a baby in the fall.
"I'm so excited, and I just want to be the best father I can possibly be," Morrison told the magazine, adding that he's "looking forward to everything" about parenthood.
"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," he said. "I can't wait to share experiences and watch life through my kid's eyes."
Morrison and Renee, an actress who appeared in "Divergent," married in 2014 after three years of dating.
The couple confirmed their baby news Wednesday by dedicating sweet posts to each other on Instagram.
"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," Morrison wrote.
"My love, @_matthew.morrison_ you have given me dreams I didn't know how to dream, love greater than all the fairy tales, hope when it seemed to be slipping from my finger tips," Renee added. "I couldn't have dreamt of a better Papa for our little one."
