Sometimes you have to read a sentence two or three times to make sure you understood it correctly. But no, your eyes did not deceive you. Because this just in: Jake Gyllenhaal wants to be a father.

That’s right. Hollywood dreamboat Jake Gyllenhaal opened up about his aspirations to have a family.

We must admit we’re swooning. Hard.

The actor has been busy promoting his latest movie, Stronger, the story of a real-life survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. While chatting with People, he got very real about his hopes of being a father.

Though the actor maintains a relatively low profile and avoids social media (though he did recently discover the Twitter account @JakeActivities), Gyllenhaal famously dated Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon, and Taylor Swift. The latter he dated for just three months in 2010, but he recently finally answered a question about dating Swift — sort of.

At the moment, Gyllenhaal is single.

However, he looks to role models like his famous sister, Maggie, when he envisions his future family.

Apparently, this isn’t the first time Gyllenhaal expressed a desire to be a father. (D’aww.) While promoting Southpaw in 2015, in which he plays a father, he told People he would “love for it to not be fictional.”

So…where do we sign up to be the baby mama?
