Maybe he can be Indiana Jones? Harrison Ford takes 7 ½-year-old Liam Flockhart to Ursula’s Costumes store in Brentwood, Calif. on Friday to choose a Halloween costume. Liam is the son of actress Calista Flockhart, whom Harrison has dated since 2002.

Although Harrison has not officially adopted Liam, he considers himself a parent to the boy, telling Reader’s Digest,

"My youngest, other than Liam, is 17. It’s a wonderful opportunity tobe part of a child’s growing up, which is always an endless springtime.You see the blossoming and the growing and the nurturing and the payoff. Being a parent made me just a bit less self-centered.

Calista’s a mother by choice — she adopted Liambefore we met, as a single parent, which is an awesome responsibilityto take. She’s devoted herself to Liam and has done a really wonderfuljob raising him. I’m happy to now have a part of the job."

I love this daddy-son duo. Harrison might not be Liam’s father in the eyes of the law, but in the eyes of the child he is, and that’s what matters. Liam and Harrison clearly have a great bond, which is wonderful.

I agree completely, Phoebe. His admiration for Calista Flockhart is wonderful, and how great that he expresses it! Liam has a great role model for what a man, and gentleman, is.

My 16 year old daughter would love to have Harrison adopt her! I would not mind either!

Harrison is sure buff considering he’s the same age as my father!

I hope one day he legally adopts Liam. Even though I wish him and Calista the best, I hope that if they ever do part ways that he will have joint custody of Liam.

I hope he always is a part of Liam’s life regardless of whether or not he continues his relationship with Calista.
