“You know, I started doing all the cliches, ‘I’m gonna threaten the guys, I’m gonna dig a moat around our house,’” Macy, 68, told Us Weekly while promoting his Showtime drama in L.A. on Thursday, May 24. “And then I thought, ‘OK, what do you really want for your daughters?’ And I realized: I want them to be happy and lusty and safe. I want them to have a lot of sex in their lifetime! Good, healthy wonderful sex with no guilt. That’s what I really want.”

Macy admitted “boys are in the picture” at the moment. “They’re different than when I was a kid. Georgia and Sofia have all their pals over. They will have six or eight of their friends over,” the two-time Emmy winner told Us. “It’s pretty bizarre, especially with Sofia, to wake up in the morning and there’s some boy walking out of your daughter’s room! They all sleep together! I don’t think they have sex, well, I know they don’t.”

It’s clear the ER alum couldn’t be more proud of his children. He gushed that Georgia “is crazy about political science” while Sofia attends a high school for the arts in L.A. and is following him and Huffman, 55, into show business. “I think she’s firmly in the tribe,” Macy told Us. “She’s good. I’ve seen her in a lot of plays.”
