Taika Waititi has confirmed he is to become a father for the first time.

The acclaimed Kiwi director also said he was considering making a sequel to his 2010 hit Boy, the top-grossing Kiwi movie of all time, in a new interview.

Answering questions on an "ask me anything" question-and-answer session on Reddit.com, Waititi said he was hungover from celebrating his partner's pregnancy.

"I went out last night to celebrate inseminating my female companion so my hands are a tiny bit hungover," he said.

"Babies are awesome! Until they come out."

Asked if he had considered making a sequel to Boy, Waititi said it was a definite possibility.

"I have considered making a sequel to Boy but thought I might wait for James (Rolleston, the film's star) to get older, maybe when he's 18 or something."

Waititi is in America promoting the US release of Boy.
