The 36-year-old singer is very keen to start a family with his 24-year-old wife, actress Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre, but does not want to force her before she is completely comfortable with the idea.
He said TV show `Entertainment Tonight Canada`: "I`ve said to Luisana a million times I`d love to have kids. But I always say to her when you`re ready - when you feel like you`ve lived and you`ve partied and done all the things you want to do. When you`ve worked your butt off, then tell me."
However in the meantime the Canadian crooner continues to be "jealous" of his friends who already havechildren.
He added: "All my friends have babies so every time one of them says, `Guess what, you`re going to be an uncle,` part of me is so happy for them and the other part of me is jealous."
Michael married Luisana in a civil ceremony in her native Argentina in March, and posed for fans after the ceremony, before hosting a larger event for 300 guests at a mansion outside of Buenos Aires.
