Funnyman Ben Stiller plans to take a one-year hiatus from his movie career when his second child is born this summer (05).

The MEET THE FOCKERS star has busied himself in a string of hit movies over the last year (04) but now wants to spend more time with actress wife Christine Taylor, their two-year-old daughter ELLA, and the upcoming new arrival.

A friend of the 39-year-old comedy star says, "Ben loves being a father and he feels he's missing out on a lot by working so much.

"He's saying that he's going to take at least a year off to be with his daughter and baby once it arrives. Besides, Christine needs his help as chief diaper changer!"
