Ty Pennington hopes to be a dad one day

08/22/2007 at 11:14 PM ET
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition‘s Ty Pennington has kids on his mind lately. The 41-year-old is working with Project Playground — a program focusing on building a playground for a Harlem elementary school — and is also thinking about fatherhood.
Of course [I’d like to be a dad]! I think that’s something we all want in the future. I love kids. I’m one gigantic kid myself. I’d love to have the time to be able to focus on them.

I could have thought awhile back like 3 years ago Ty was on Oprah and said he had a girlfriend and was carrying luggage along the way ? Isnt he already a dad?

Gloria Schmitten on

I think Ty would make a wonderful Father.
Hope he does deceide to have kids!

Samantha Hinderman on

I think Ty would make a great dad !!

Isn't it great on

The baggage he’s referring to is being an alcoholic. I’m surprised people forgot about his DUI.

I always thought he was gay! Don’t know why though, strange!

I hope he gets over his alcohol issue before having children.

PSB on

Sarita – I always thought he was gay too! I don’t have any particular reason, haven’t heard any rumors – just got “the vibe” from him. Guess I was wrong!

If he can get his drinking in check, I’m sure he’ll make a great dad. He’s obviously a really caring guy.

Hey, it’s weird to see this today. Right now as I type this Extreme Home Makeover is working on a house that’s 3 houses down from my sister’s house here in MN. I’m going to my sister’s tonight to see all the action. I might get to see Ty! Who knows?

And no, Ty’s not the gay one, the other cute TV home improvement guy is gay. The one who lost his boyfriend in the tsunami remember? His name is Nate I think.

Raebees on

Found it… Nate Berkus is the cute gay home renovation guy.

preesi on

Raebees? Ty is a carpenter, Nate is an Interior decorator, polar opposites!
Ty is to Home Improvement what Rachael Ray is to fine dining…

BTW I saw Paige Davis on Chelsea Lately the other night, she has dark brown hair now.

Remember one thing. If you father a child, that child passes down your Add. So wouldnt it be better to adopt.
I am James Summers sister. So you know we ar going through the same things you are.

Ty is a great guy, i have seen all the shows so i can say this this guy DOES deserve kids. No matter what you guys think of his problems. Nobody is perfect and people CAN change, keep your critical opinions to yourself because this guy is king of generosity.

i think that ty should have kids if he wants. God will bless him when the time is right.
