Eric Mabius on wife Ivy and son Maxfield

by CBB correspondent Joyce:

Ugly Betty star Eric Mabius revealed on the SAG red carpet on Sunday that he and his wife Ivy go way back – all the way back to a high school sex ed class – and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

The 35-year-old actor tells Us Weekly, "There’s something to be said for having a long history with someone. I can’t think of anything that’s more romantic than being with somone you deeply trust."

Eric isn’t a slouch in the romance department either. When he comes home from a long day on set, he kisses their son Maxfield Elliott, 6 months, kisses Ivy and brings her a cup of tea. The couple fights "really hard" for alone time together, he says.

Nothing beats being a father though. Eric says he cherishes his quality time with Max and seeing him "grow his first tooth and sit up for the first time."

Eric and Ivy will celebrate their one-year anniversary this month.

Eric Mabius is just too cute! And I think that having a history with someone is the best too.

Maxfield is a wonderful name. Very smart sounding. Although wasn’t that the name of the guy in Get Smart? lol
