Theo Rossi, who currently stars as Francisco 'Ghost' Alvarez in the gritty film Lowriders, may portray some pretty hard-exterior characters on the screen, but it turns out he is anything but! The actor spoke with OK! exclusively about preparing to be a dad for the second time, and his comments about his son Kane and wife Meghan McDermott will melt your heart.
His adorable son may not be two-years-old yet, but he’s already aware of his family growing in a major way. “Every morning [we tell him],” Theo tells OK! “He’s going to be two-years-old soon so he’s still processing a lot of it. But every morning we say ‘where’s the baby?’ and he goes to the belly and he kisses the belly. He knows the baby’s in there. You ask him where the baby is and he goes and rubs mom’s belly.” This may be cute, but it gets cuter.
Kane is already watching baby videos on YouTube like they’re cartoons! Says Theo, “he loves baby videos of actual babies on YouTube. He just sits there and smiles and laughs in awe of it. So he’s going to be an incredible big brother, whether it’s a son or a daughter.”
And there’s a reason Kane’s not jealous – he’s already used to being one of the pack, as Theo puts it. They have not one but three dogs in their household! “You got to understand, my son was raised around three dogs and he thinks he’s one of the dogs and he’s already part of a pack. So it’s like adding another dog--it just happens to be a human. [So] another addition? He’s going to love it.”
As for fans who are dying to know if it’s going to be a girl this time around, you’ll have to wait like everyone else.
“We didn’t find out with him and we’re not on this, so it’ll be a surprise in every way and I think he [Kane] is going to be terrific,” adds the New York native.
Kane sounds like the ideal big brother if you ask us, and just in case you aren’t obsessed with him yet, Theo opened up about his son’s favorite current pasttime, and no, it isn’t acting (yet at least.) “At this present moment, it’s dancing,” admits Theo. “He loves to dance and he loves to shake, so we’ll see if that sticks with him for the next 20 years.”
Regardless of what he ends up pursuing, the actor makes it clear that he has his family’s back no matter what.
“My only job is to make sure that he lives his best life ever and the same with the next kid. That’s my only job from here on out – to make sure he has the best experience he can have while he’s on this planet and for me to build that foundation.” Where are the tissues?!
And while Theo has plenty on his slate these days, anticipating his second child takes the cake. “The main thing I have coming up is the birth of my second kid. That’s the greatest project coming up and the best one to promote,” he tells OK! #Goals
