Being the father of two boys — Elijah and Giancarlo — and having them "100% depend on you and you being responsible for molding their lives," couldn’t make actor Freddy Rodriguez happier as he shares that he is thrilled with fatherhood. Not letting their dad’s role on the sitcom Ugly Betty phase them, Freddy reports that the boys are doing "great" and are into "stuff that regular kids do nowadays," making memories that the 33-year-old actor is enjoying as he watches them grow up.

However, as his firstborn is reaching those infamous teenage years, the former Six Feet Under star jokes that as his eldest son has begun growing facial hair, they warrant some odd looks as the father-son duo walk down the street!

"It’s starting to look weird when I walk down the street with him. I’m starting to look like his big brother rather than his father."

Elijah and Giancarlo are Freddy’s children with high school sweetheart turned wife, Elsie.

In everything I’ve read about Freddy he seems like a great guy but an even better Dad. His son Giancarlo has even acted with him on Ugly Betty and Six Feet Under. I only hope the people in charge at Ugly Betty realize what they are giving up if they let him go. He is a great actor and contributed a lot to the show.Plus the comment about his son and the facial hair…hilarious!

“Elijah and Giancarlo are Freddy’s children with high school sweetheart turned wife, Elsie”. Very beautifully written, CBB! I’m not kidding, that just about brought tears to my eyes (I admitt it, I’m a soft-hearted romantic!)!

I love that he’s been married to the same women for like, ten years. For me, that’s definitely a milestone.
