Matthew Morrison is reconsidering his thoughts about parenthood.

Actor Matthew Morrison has been put off the idea of starting a family soon after spending a week running around after his wife's young niece.

The former Glee star celebrated his first wedding anniversary with wife Renee Puente in October (15) and they had been thinking of trying for kids sooner rather than later.

However, Matthew confesses they have since postponed their baby plans after getting a taste of parenthood by babysitting Renee's niece.

"We actually were gonna start kind of soon, but then we had our five-year-old niece stay with us for a week and we were like, 'Ah, I think we're gonna push it back just a little bit!'" he laughs on U.S. breakfast show Today.

The 37 year old began dating Renee in 2011 and they married in Hawaii last year (14).

Matthew has enough to keep him busy in 2016 - he wraps his stint in Broadway's Finding Neverland musical in late January (16), and is preparing to launch his own performing arts high school in his native California.

The actor/singer attended the Orange County High School of the Arts as a teenager and he recently revealed he is using his alma mater as a blueprint for his new educational facility.

"The director (of the Orange County High School of the Arts)... and I have been talking about it (starting a school for) a long time... because (my high school is) such a great model," he told U.S. late night host Seth Meyers.

"Next year, we are launching the California School of the Arts San Diego and the year after that it's going to be (in)... South Bay... We're going to do it in California for a little bit and see how those work and then hopefully make it a nationwide thing."
