After all these years she’s come to expect me to be a dope… thank god she gets it, and loves me regardless.”

Shortly before welcoming their new addition, Morgan opened up exclusively to Us Weekly about becoming a dad for the second time while appearing at the Walking Dead season 8 premiere event in L.A. in October.
“I’m very excited. I think in my life, I think that being a dad is my favorite thing in the world, bar none,” he gushed.“So the opportunity to do it again, and maybe not screw it up as bad as I have already, that would be great.”
In addition to juggling two successful acting careers, Burton and Morgan co-own a candy store, Samuel’s Sweet Shop, with pal Paul Rudd, in Rhinebeck, New York.
