Dad-to-Be Jerry Ferrara Says He's Most Looking Forward to 'Watching' His Son 'Grow Up'

Jerry Ferrara‘s Entourage is getting bigger in just a couple of months.

“I’m just going to be ready at all times,” Ferrara — who’s expecting his first child with wife Breanne — tells PEOPLE. “I’m going to stay ready so I don’t have to get ready.”

As their pregnancy reaches the 30-week mark, the dad-to-be shares his hopes for his son on the way: “If he is significantly more my wife than me, I’m good. We’re good. I know that kid is going to be good,” says Ferrara, 39.

The star announced the pregnancy to fans with an emotional post in early January. He mentioned his own childhood in the caption, writing that “[g]rowing up without a father means this is the most important job/thing I’ll ever do.”

As for what he’s most anticipating, Ferrara is “really looking forward to waking up every day and seeing his face and seeing him change and watching him grow up,” he tells PEOPLE. “I’m excited to see [my son] grow.”

Ferrara is definitely excited to be preparing for fatherhood, too. “I’m learning a lot,” the Power actor tells PEOPLE. “I’m learning thousands of different things.”
