The Bachelor, Matt Grant, is Serious About Family

by at . Comments

ABC's upcoming star of The Bachelor, Matt Grant, is looking for love... and a wife, and the mother of his future children.

Matt Grant, 27, has a very close relationship with his father and credits him as being part of the reason he's in such a rush to start a family.

"My dad had a stroke at the end of 2006 and that really shook me. I want my kids to know my dad, because he was a great father and I want him to be a grandfather to them. I wouldn't mind having three or four kids," he told OK! Magazine.

Other than his accent, which he calls "geeky," Matt Grant doesn't see too much of a difference between British men and American men.

There are a few things that set them apart, though.

"We drink more tea and have crazy sports like cricket. I like to consider myself a British gentleman," he said.

Twenty-five lucky aspiring trophy wives will get to meet this British gentleman when The Bachelor returns to ABC on Monday, March 17.
