Dean McDermott's hero is his son Jack

10/27/2007 at 08:15 PM ET

Actor and reality star Dean McDermott, 40, could admire any person that he chooses, but his hero is his son Jack Mongtomery, 9. When asked recently what his favorite songs are, Dean revealed that one of them is Hero by the Foo Fighters and it makes him think of his son.

Hero by the Foo Fighters, it reminds me of my son Jack. He’s my hero and an awesome kid.

Mom is Dean’s ex-wife, chef Mary Jo Eustace, 43. Dean and his wife, actress Tori Spelling, have one son, Liam Aaron, 7 months.

I think that is silly. How can a baby be someone’s hero? A hero is someont that you want to emulate, someone you look up to, what does he want to poop in his pants and spit up too? That is silly. He needs a real hero, who has actually done something.

That’s too sweet!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t he also have a very young daughter….. (born less than a year before he eloped with Tori Spelling)…. whom he signed away parental rights for.

I don’t think there’s anything sweet about this man. He reeks ‘ewwww’.

Gee, I find it very interesting that Dean’s daughter Lola is never mentioned. But maybe he doesn’t count her because shes adopted. Poor kid.
