Wyatt Russell's son is "excited" to be a big brother.

The 'Night Swim' actor and his wife Meredith Hagner will welcome their second son into the world next month and have been doing their best to prepare little Buddy, who turns three in March, for the upcoming change to their household so believe the youngster will be accepting of the baby.

Wyatt told 'Entertainment Tonight': "You know, he's three, so he's as ready as he can be.

"I think he understands what's gonna happen. He's a pretty smart little guy.

"I think we're definitely doing our best to prepare him for the fact that, like, there will be another human being living in our home. But I think he's excited about it."

Showing off her huge bump, Meredith joined Wyatt at the Los Angeles premiere of his horror film 'Night Swim' at the Hotel Figueroa on Wednesday (03.01.23), and the 37-year-old actor admitted his wife is very "close" to her due date.

He said: "Close! We're close. We're getting close to the any-day-now phase."

The 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' actor - who is the son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn - previously admitted becoming a dad had changed his priorities and stopped him being interested in winning awards and critical acclaim for his work.

His father told The Rake magazine: "When you're making a movie, I just try to make what we intend to make as good as possible. I have no interest or care about awards."

Wyatt replied in the joint interview: "I have only become that way after the birth of my son.

"Before him I was concerned with my peers respecting me, but my son was born and I was like, F***that, who cares?

"It made me double down on wanting to do the best work."
