I know I'm only 19 years old going on 20, and that I'm a virgin and unmarried, but I REALLY want a daughter and sometimes I even cry at night because I don't have one.
I often see my little sister and remember how cute she was/is, and it makes me wish I could have my own daughter to love and raise, to teach her everything I know and have her baptized Orthodox, to name her myself and absolutely cherish her.
I feel like having a daughter would fill this void in my heart, like I'll never be complete until I have one.

I think it's normal and very sweet. You'll be a good father someday.
Just make sure that you are both emotionally and financially stable enough to raise and care for a baby, that you really care for the mother a great deal, and to be prepared for it to turn out to be a boy and still love it as much as you would if it were a girl.
Also, babies are a lot of responsibility, and the majority of the freedom you have now will end when you become a father. There will be no more hanging out with friends or doing things on your terms because your child will have to come first. You will have to be more careful with your time and money because you will need to make sure your child's needs are met before your own. Children are a 24/7, 18+ year commitment that you can't just toss aside when you don't feel like being a parent that day.
Just be sure you're actually ready and well-prepared when you decide to have one.1
