After accepting the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV drama, Boss star Kelsey Grammer announced that he and his wife are expecting twins.

"I'm really looking forward to meeting these new arrivals in our lives, I really am," said Grammer of his first children with new wife Kayte Walsh.

Grammer, 56, married Walsh, a former flight attendant, in February just after his divorce to former wife – and current Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star -- Camille Donatacci was finalized. This is Grammer’s fourth marriage.

Grammer closed his acceptance speech onstage on Sunday night by thanking his wife "for the future and what a magnificent year it's been."

This will be Grammer’s fifth child, and first with Walsh. The couple previously announced they were pregnant in 2010, but later said that Walsh had suffered a miscarriage.

Backstage, Grammer also gushed about his role as Chicago Mayor Tom Kane in the Starz drama. "Playing him has been the most fun I've ever had," Grammer said.

The former Frasier actor, whose Globe win marks his first victory in the drama category noted he hopes the victory helps attract an audience for the series, which has struggled to lure viewers to the premium cable network despite picking up a second-season renewal before the premiere aired.

"I hope more and more people will have a chance to see it," he said. "I imagine we'll now garner quite an audience share. It's a compelling story and it's fun to watch people find him."
