No more potty mouth for Jeffrey Dean Morgan; at least not around his 22-month-old son, Gus. It seems that the little guy has started to expand his vocabulary, which isn’t exactly a good thing.
“I took him to dinner the other night and he said, ‘Bullsh-t!’ I couldn’t believe it, but at the same time, there might have been a high-five involved,” Morgan, 45, tells Us Weekly at Friday’s Winter TCA Press Tour in Pasadena, Calif.
“It made me laugh a lot,” says the Grey’s Anatomy alum. “I was like, ‘I really gotta start watching my language, ’cause, man, he is repeating everything he hears!’
But I’m a much better father than that!” Morgan adds. “It’s maybe not the best story to tell, but it did make me laugh.”
Parenthood has been bringing all kinds of joy for Jeffrey and girlfriend Hilarie Burton, 29, of One Tree Hill. In fact, Morgan says that his “new favorite thing is being a dad.”
“It’s been amazing,” gushes the Magic City star. “I spend my whole day with him. Since we wrapped this show, I’ve purposely not done anything, so it’s been daddy-kid time. I’ve let mom go and do a job, and I just really want to spend time with him.”
