Sounds like Tyler Perry still has babies on his mind. During an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Perry opened up about wanting to become a father even though he admits his work schedule might be too hectic for a marriage.
"I'm not so sure, with this kind of work ethic, what kind of husband I will be," Perry said. "I don't know about marriage as much as I do know that I'd be a great father."
Perry, who said he works 20 hours a day, said he realized his ambitions to be a father while working on his upcoming film, Single Mom's Club. "It comes and goes ... I'm working really hard right now and I don't want to do it wrong," he added.
Last month, Perry also appeared on Steve Harvey's show touting his ambitions for fatherhood.
"I know I would be a great father," he told Harvey. "I don't want to work this hard, I don't want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know that as hard as I'm working — doing 20 hours a day — now is not the time."
In the meantime, the 43-year-old Madea star is helping other people's children. He recently donated $100k to help student athletes in Columbus, Ohio, middle schools. Many extracurricular activities and sports programs were eliminated after a levee broke in 2009. These activities were later reinstated, but for a fee. Perry said he was pulled to chip in after learning of one Finland Middle School teacher's foundation to raise funds to cover students' fees.
