Looking ahead! Matthew Morrison starred on Glee for all six seasons, but his 17-month-old son, Revel, hasn’t seen a single episode.

“Eventually, when he’s able to really understand what’s going on, it’s going to be fun to actually sit down and watch all the seasons of it,” the Good Wife alum, 40, told Us Weekly exclusively at the Spring Benefit for Room to Grow, a nonprofit working with low-income families who are raising young children in New York City and Boston, on Thursday, April 4. “He’ll be like, ‘What?’ I think he’ll be blown away just like everyone was, the first round of it.”

The Emmy nominee, who admitted that even he hasn’t “seen every episode” of the show, is excited for Revel to see “his dad in his prime.”

Morrison and his wife, Renee Puente, welcomed their baby boy in October 2017.

“To my Newborn Child, Revel James Makai Morrison: Your Mama and Papa got this!!” the actor captioned an Instagram photo cradling his newborn at the time. “Trust in us to guide and protect you always. To lay the tracks so your choo choo train will run smoothly throughout this world. You will have all the tools to soar! We love you, and are so thankful for your arrival! The adventures are just beginning…”

Now more than a year into fatherhood, Morrison told Us how having a baby has changed the way he performs. “Songs have a deeper meaning to me,” he said. “I’m not necessarily singing them about my son, in most songs, but he’s there. He’s a part of the performance and in everything I do now. I think the work that I do is on a much deeper level and that’s thanks to him.”
