Professor Green 'scared' to have children

PROFESSOR Green is scared of having children.

The 31-year-old rapper - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - would love to start a family with wife Millie Mackintosh but admits he is very nervous at the prospect of being a father.

He said: "I wouldn't say I'm broody but when I see Millie holding a baby it does make me realise how much I want us to have children together.

"When I was younger I thought that I'd prefer us to have a son, but now I'm more mature I have no preference if it's a boy or a girl. Being a dad scares the life out of me, but at the same time I can't wait to have kids with Millie."

The 'I Need You Tonight' hitmaker - who had a strained relationship with his own late father and was raised by his grandmother - wants to be a "present" parent and would dedicate himself to his children.

He told Britain's OK! magazine: "I just want to be present for my children and apply myself properly as a dad. I think that's all you can really hope for."
