After filming Black Panther, director Ryan Coogler wants to have children, and more specifically, he wants daughters.

According to The YBF, the 31-year-old opened up about wanting children with his wife, Zinzi Evans.

“I found I want daughters real, real bad,” he said during an interview with the site after working with the women cast members for the film. “Like plural. I thought, making Fruitvale Station, I want kids. But like, on this one, I have to have some daughters.”

Black Panther opened in theaters to monumental success, shattering too many records to count. Its soundtrack, Black Panther: The Album, even celebrated success, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard chart since its release on Feb. 9.

Well, the ladies did kick ass in the new Marvel film. Just saying.
