Tracy Morgan, funny man and co-star of the quirky NBC-TV sitcom “30 Rock,” (pictured left), is going to be a Daddy again. The actor made his announcement on Thursday to People Magazine that he and his model fiancée, Megan Wollover (pictured), are expecting their first child together.
Morgan’s news comes on the heels of saying goodbye to his popular and long-running comedy, “30 Rock,” after a seven-year run. Even though Morgan is closing one chapter in his life, he is more than ready to open up a new one with his bun in Wollover’s oven. The 44-year-old told People that he is ecstatic about the baby’s arrival, “I am over the moon excited and just want a happy and healthy baby and a safe delivery for Megan,” he said.
Morgan, who has three grown sons from a previous 23-year-marriage, recently spilled the beans in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine that he pines for a baby girl and said in no uncertain terms, “You know what happiness is? Happiness is a simple thing, man,” he told the magazine. “It’s having something to look forward to.”
The couple has been engaged for about 10 months, and Morgan publicly announced the news to none other than Ryan Seacrest while on the Red Carpet at the Emmys last September.
Morgan, who states he is not putting his career on pause after leaving “30 Rock,” will reportedly take his funny to the big screen, revive his stand-up career, and might even dabble in putting together a one-man show on Broadway.
Despite Morgan’s struggles with diabetes and past DUIs, Morgan seems to be on track and gives all the credit to Wollover. The performer is optimistic about his future and tells Rolling Stone Magazine, “Every time I make love to her, I say, Damn it! We getting it together! I have an orgasm and look at her and say, May the force be with you!” he muses.
