The actor of "The Theory of Everything" fame has admitted he initially wanted to find out the gender of his first child, but his wife thought otherwise, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
He said: "It's gonna be a surprise. I was like, 'Maybe we should find out?', but my wife was like, 'We are not finding out', so she wears the trousers. (It's) one of the great surprises that still exists in the world."
The 34-year-old actor has been very busy and said he hasn't had a chance to check out a parenting guide, but he isn't worried.
"We got our first book, which is looking at us, and we are staring guiltily as we should be learning 'how to be parents', but we haven't opened them yet. We have got a while," he told Extra! TV.
However, he had earlier mentioned that they are working on the "logistics" of welcoming a child into the world.
