With the birth of Vanessa Lachey‘s son just about a month awayNick Lachey couldn’t be more thrilled about the September arrival.

“I can’t even explain how excited I am,” Nick, 38, recently told PEOPLE. “For someone who has wanted a family for such a long time, I’ve looked forward to this moment. Now that it’s almost here, it’s awesome.”

NBC’s upcoming Stars Earn Stripes competitor, who says he probably wants to end up with three kids total, is “looking forward to everything” about fatherhood.

“Maybe it’s because this is my first, but I’m looking forward to the lack of sleep — everything,” he explains. “I don’t care. I’m excited to do the whole process.”

Make that almost everything. “I’m willing to change diapers,” Nick says. “But I’m not necessarily excited to change diapers.”
