Believe it or not, what Tyler Perry really wants to check off his list next isn’t an Oscar (though we’re guessing he’d take that too).

It’s a son or a daughter.

On a recent episode of “The Steve Harvey Show,” the filmmaker is one of the highest paid men in all of Hollywood, and the thing he’s really craving to be a daddy.

“I know I would be a great father,” Tyler, 43, says. “I don’t want to work this hard, I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children. I also know, that as hard as I’m working–doing 20 hours a day–now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work, I’m enjoying being a bachelor. So eventually I’ll get there.”
