Calling all Gleeks! Mr Shu, the teacher you wished you had in school, is expecting a baby!

Well, Matthew Morrison, who portrayed the loveable teacher on Glee from 2009 to 2015, has revealed that his wife Renee is pregnant.

Matthew shared his excitement over his impending fatherhood with PEOPLE Magazine.

“I’m so excited, and I just want to be the best father I possibly can be,” Morrison told the magazine.

“The fact that it’s half me and half the person that I love most in this world… I’m so excited to meet our child and to see what he or she looks like, and to see what features of my beautiful wife that he or she has.”

After the reveal, Matthew paid tribute to Renee on Instagram with a touching video and caption, which reads:

“Our #MorrisonAdventures have been so epic together, but they have only just begun!! We will have a new addition to the family and I'm blown away by the unconditional love that I already possess for this child. I have such a clear vision of the Father that I want to be, but the perfection lies in the balance and teamwork that Renee and I have cultivated. Now, we simply wait with open arms....”

The actor/Broadway started dating his future wife in 2011 and the pair became engaged in 2013.

In fact, the one and only Elton John revealed Matt and Renee’s engagement to the world when he announced it at his annual White Tie and Tiara Ball in London that year.

The couple tied the knot in October 2014 on their home on the island of Maui.

Renee Morrison, nee Puente, identifies herself as an artist and has also dabbled in acting, having had small roles in TV series The Exes and movie blockbuster Divergent.
