Actor Matthew McConaughey pretty much always knew he wanted to be a father.

McConaughey opened up about the moment he really knew he wanted to be a father one day during Monday’s episode of “Good Morning America.”

“I was meeting some of his new friends, looking up at them and shaking their hands, and saying, ‘Nice to meet you, sir,'” McConaughey recalled. (RELATED: Matthew McConaughey Announces New Memoir ‘Greenlights’)

“In my 8-year-old mind, what I noticed at that time, was every man that I had said ‘sir’ to — the common denominator was they were all fathers, and I remember saying, ‘That’s when you’ve made it,'” he continued. “That’s when you’ve succeeded in life, when you become a father.'”

“From that day on it was very clear to me the one thing I knew I always wanted to be,” McConaughey added.

This is such a sweet story. We all already knew McConaughey was one of the greatest celebrities of all time, but he always continues to prove us right. There is never a bad thing to say about him.
