Kyle MacLachlan says he’s planning to leave “Desperate Housewives” because the commute from home (New York) to Wisteria Lane (L.A.) is too much for him, now that he’s a family man.

He and his wife, Desiree Gruber, and their baby Callum (who’ll be a year old in July) are his top priority — as they should be.

“It’s getting more difficult going back and forth,” MacLachlan said. “I’ll do the next series and see how it goes.”

“It’s such a huge change having children. It’s not about me any more – it’s about my family.”

Wonder what that’ll mean for Orson? His character’s becoming more obsolete with the divorce/Bree’s new affair with Karl.

He also said he wants more children.

“Callum is an absolute joy,” he said. “We’re going to try for another so they can fight each other!”
