Jeffrey Dean Morgan might want to choose his words more carefully: his potty-mouth is rubbing off on his 22-month-old son, Gus!
"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," the 45-year-old actor joked to Us Weekly at Friday's Winter TCA Press Tour in Pasadena, Calif.
"It made me laugh a lot. I was like, 'I really gotta start watching my language, 'cause, man, he is repeating everything he hears!'" Morgan added. "But I'm a much better father than that! It's maybe not the best story to tell, but it did make me laugh."
Morgan — who's still going strong with former One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton, 29 — also said his "new favorite thing is being a dad."
"It's been amazing," the Magic City actor told Us. 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."
