Brendan O'Carroll regrets not having children with Jennifer Gibney.
The 'Mrs. Brown's Boys' star has children Danny, Fiona and Eric from his previous marriage to Doreen Dowdall but admits there were times when he and his second wife and co-star - whom he married in 2005 - thought about having their own.
He shared: "Jenny doesn't have children. Over the years there have been times when I would get a bit broody and she did too, but she was also step-mum to my children.
"I would have loved to have seen what a baby from me and Jen would be like and we did say, 'Wouldn't it be great to have a baby', because we love kids."
However, the 59-year-old funnyman - who stars as Irish matriarch Agnes Brown alongside Jennifer as his daughter Cathy in the BBC One comedy series - claims they were too busy with work and eventually decided they were happy as they were.
Brendan continued to The Sun newspaper: "But we were still on the road a lot and we couldn't inflict that on a baby. Then what saved our bacon was our first grandson Jamie being born eight years ago. Now Jenny and I have our baby fix through our grandchildren - our youngest grandson Isaac was only born this summer."
