SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA - JULY 01: Actor Jake Gyllenhaa

Cape Town – In an interview with Sunday TODAY's Willie Geist, Jake Gyllenhaal spoke about his upcoming role in the Broadway show Sea Wall/A Life, dropping hints that it's made him realise how badly he wants a family of his own. 

"I do hope to be a father one day," he commented as he spoke about the role that sees him becoming a dad and the various aspects of his life that influences his journey. 

But this isn't the first time the actor's spoken about his desire to have children. 

In an interview with PEOPLE back in 2017 he gushed about his sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal's children. 

"My sister has raised two beautiful daughters. They are the most amazing girls," he said. "It's fun to send them home with a lot of candy, because it was almost like, 'Enjoy it, Mags!' A little payback for being the sister who made me perform weird shows at our parents' dinner parties," he joked. 

"I want to continue becoming more of an adult than I already am," he said. "Hopefully, with a family of my own."
