He goes on to say that he and his family have received an outpouring of support and well wishes. "The support has been fantastic and really, really humbling," Lowe says.

When asked how his family is dealing with the allegations, the actor says, "The whole thing is very sad. But the family is great, the boys are great. They are affected by it, but they're moving through it. My boys understand that being a celebrity sometimes exposes you to some really bad stuff, and then sometimes you get a VIP tour of Disneyland."
