Fatherhood is fast approaching for Jason Schwartzman — what’s he looking forward to?

“I just can’t wait to hold that bundle in my arms and show it Jersey Shore,” joked the actor at the premiere of Bored to Death, held at the Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts on Tuesday in N.Y.C.

The star of the HBO series and his wife, Brady Cunningham, are expecting their first child in December.

“I’m trying to expect nothing actually,” Schwartzman, 30, told PEOPLE. “I think the more you expect, perhaps you can be thrown off. I’m going to wait and just meet my child, whomever he or she may be.”

“I’m lucky I found a woman that I love and that’s amazing,” he adds on a more serious note. “I’m having a family and I feel very happy. I try to be a good father-to-be. I try to treat my wife well [so she can] enjoy these months.”

“I give her all the attention I can,” Schwartzman explains. “I’m there to make her feel comfortable and relaxed and we spend a lot of time talking to her stomach.”

Still, when asked about his wife’s cravings, the actor couldn’t help but crack another joke. “Me with a mustache,” he replied.

HaHa, he already sounds like a wonderful father. I HATE when parents set their kids up for something THEY like. I happen to know alot of parents like that…I am proud to say I let my son be himself and have his own interests and pursue them. It makes him an individual and very unique…and nobody forgets him easily!

It seems like Jason gets it – children are not an extension of YOU. They’re their own person with their own future hopes and dreams. He’ll be a great father!

Of course I want certain things for my daughter but honestly, as long as she’s happy with her life, that’s all a parent can ask for, right?
