LOS ANGELES, Calif.-- "Harry Potter" starDaniel Radcliffeis just 21, but he's already thinking about having children.
While taping a "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" related special on CNN with the main cast,Larry Kingasked the British actor if he wanted to have a family some day.
"Oh, God yes, absolutely," Daniel replied. "It's very strange. I'm one of the broodiest young men you will ever meet... I think also, because I spent so much time around adults and I saw them all have kids..."
"You want children?" Larry asked.
"Absolutely," the actor said.
Daniel went on to say he would like to have a big family -- eventually.
"Not just now. But I want kids and I want lots," he laughed. "I've seen how happy fatherhood has made some of my best friends.
"I love kids, as well," he continued. "I definitely want that."
Daniel confirmed he is dating, but he stopped short of saying his current paramour is the one he'll start a family with.
"I've got a girlfriend at the moment, who I am very much in love with," he said. "So, you know, we'll see where that goes."
