Speaking with ET’s Leanne Aguilera at The Walking Dead’s 100th episode celebration at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, California, on Sunday, Morgan reiterated how proud he is of Burton and her strength.
"She is the most amazing person I've ever met,” he said. “You said, she's a bit of a role model for you -- she is for me as well. There's no one stronger than her. How she's able to balance all the things that she balances and be a strong voice for good is amazing and I just couldn't be more proud. Every single day she does something that amazes me. She has made me such a better person, so I'm a lucky dude.”
Burton’s balancing act is about to get busier as the couple prepares to welcome their second child, a baby girl. They’re already parents to 7-year-old son, Augustus.
While work has been keeping Morgan busy, he’s thrilled about becoming a parent again.
"We probably should be preparing more, but I'm still working unfortunately,” he said. “I got to go home for two days earlier this week. We're excited. I don't know how else to put it. A little baby girl, so the family grows. We're pumped and Gus is excited, so it's going to be fun."
Speaking of fun, Morgan said it has been a “thrill” to continue portraying Negan on The Walking Dead,which airs Sundays on AMC.
