Someone has babies on the brain! In a new interview, Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott opened up about his desire to become a dad — and proudly revealed he can’t wait to have kids!

“Of all the success and everything we’ve achieved, I think I’ll be a great dad,” Jonathan told People. “That’s going to be exciting.” The 38-year-old has been dating and living with his serious girlfriend, Jacinta Kuznetsov, 29, for some time now.

In a previous exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, Jonathan gushed about whether or not he’ll get engaged like his twin brother and co-star, Drew Scott, who proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Linda Phan, last December. “We’re not going to take the thunder away from Drew and Linda by any means, but we’re absolutely enjoying everything,” he adorably told Closer of his relationship with Jacinta.

Turns out, Jonathan was married once before, a fact about his life that not many of his fans know about. Ten years ago, he wed airline crew scheduler Kelsy before ending the union just two years later. “We were young, and there was a rush going into it,” he once said to People of the brief relationship.

He relocated from Canada to Las Vegas just to be with her. “She wanted to get married on 07/07/07… so it wasn’t something that naturally happened,” he confessed.

However, he learned a lot from the failed love. “I don’t think I would be in the position where I am now if I didn’t have the experiences I’ve had the past,” Jonathan said. “You know, [Kelsy and I] didn’t have kids or anything. And it really helped me understand what I wanted in a relationship.
Here’s hoping Jacinta is the one because we think she and Jonathan would make amazing parents!
