London: Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that something that is missing in his life is the "sense of purpose" which comes with fatherhood.
The 23-year-old actor told Time Out magazine that he is nervous about experiencing the "wonderful change" that is enjoyed by his friends, who have become parents, the Independent reported.
The former `Harry Potter` star, who is yet to confirm any romantic liaison after his split from his long-term girlfriend last year, said that his desire to have kids was sparked by seeing the effect of parenthood on the people around him.
The actor said that he doesn`t know when or with whom, but he definitely wants to have kids.
Radcliffe said that he would like to get started on it before his thirties as he likes the idea of being a youngish parent, so that he gets the energy to play football with them.
"I`m definitely going to be one of those parents who pushes their kids into things," he said.
The actor, who is estimated to have earned 17m pounds in 2012, hinted that he would now consider a role as Harry Potter`s dad.
