Charlie Hunnam ready for a family

Charlie Hunnam ready for a family

Charlie Hunnam would like to get married and have children in the near future.

The 36-year-old actor has been booked back-to-back for work since he wrapped 'Sons of Anarchy' in late 2014 but he has admitted he'll have to re-evaluate his work-life balance once his girlfriend Morgana McNelis starts thinking about starting a family.

Speaking in the new issue of Total Film magazine, he said: "I have an incredibly understanding girlfriend who is requiring more and more as we get older that I figure out a way to balance these things a little better. I've gotten off pretty easily so far, with being able to just disappear and be completely selfish and singular in my focus, but if we're going to start talking about having children and getting married then I'm going to have to figure out a way to balance that a little bit more effectively."

However, the handsome star hasn't always been willing to his put partner, whom he's been dating for over decade, first as he stopped communicating with her while he was shooting 'The Lost City of Z' with Robert Pattinson in Columbia for 11 months because he didn't have enough time to write to her - something they agreed to do when he left.

He explained previously: "We went to Colombia, and the mail system doesn't really work very well. It's completely unreliable. I received a letter from her, and I realised that from the tone of it and things she was saying that she hadn't received the two letters that I sent before. (I then just stopped writing to her altogether, which) obviously makes me sound like a total b******d, appropriately so but I was very apologetic."

He then attempted to make amends by showering her with emeralds upon his return.

He said: "My girlfriend is a jewellery designer, so I came back with an appropriately sized gift. It didn't remedy all of the trouble I was in, but it got me halfway there."

Charlie was previously married to actress Katharine Towne - who he tied the knot with in Las Vegas following just four weeks of dating - 1999 but they divorced in 2002.
