Kelsey Grammer is about to be on double duty.
The Boss star seemed thrilled to gush about expectant wife Kayte Walsh, 32, and announce that they are having twins.
“I’m really looking forward to meeting these new arrivals,” Grammer, 56, told reporters backstage at the Golden Globe Awards after his win.
“Fatherhood’s always different, based upon the character that comes into your life. They arrive and tell you what you have to do.”
Much of his excitement stems from adoring the person who is carrying the new additions.
“[Kayte is] extraordinary,” Grammer says. “She’s one of the most loving, amazing, warm human beings I’ve ever met. She’s funny and serious all at the same time. She’s an amazing person and I think she’ll blow [the kids] away.”
