Nick Lachey can`t wait to be father

New York: Singer Nick Lachey, expecting his first child with wife Vanessa, can`t wait to enter fatherhood.

"I can`t even explain how excited I am. For someone who has wanted a family for such a long time, I`ve looked forward to this moment," quoted Lachey as saying.

"Maybe it`s because this is my first, but I`m looking forward to the lack of sleep - everything. I don`t care. I`m excited to do the whole process," he added.

Lachey, however, admits he isn`t quite looking forward to the idea of changing dirty nappies.

"I`m willing to change diapers. But I`m not necessarily excited to change diapers," he said.
