During a recent visit to Live with Regis and Kelly, father-of-two Eddie Cibrian touched on his recently troubled marriage to Brandi Glanville. “It’s tough when something private gets played out publicly,” he concedes. “There’s a part of my life that’s fantastic and a part of my life that’s very difficult…You just try to get by.”
Helping him do just that are the estranged couple’s sons Mason Edward, 6, and Jake Austin, 2 ½, both of whom resemble the 36-year-old CSI: Miami actor. “Especially my older one,” Eddie boasts. “He looks just like me.”
As for Jake, a rapidly expanding vocabulary has been both a blessing and a curse. “He’s talking up a storm, to my detriment,” Eddie jokes. “Two-year-olds….they don’t know what they’re saying.” Case in point? Father and son recently visited a Halloween store, where Jake saw a witch doll which talked spontaneously as the twosome passed by.
“He goes, ‘Daddy, what is that?’ And I go, ‘That’s a witch,’” Eddie recalls. “He goes, ‘Oooh, yeah. A scary witch!’” Thinking that the moment had come and gone, Eddie and Jake headed to a car show where they encountered two men talking — one of whom was sporting a long beard.
“As we’re passing by, he goes ‘Daddy! A scary witch!’ I said, ‘No, no, no, Jake, that’s not a witch.’ He says, ‘Yes, a scary witch!’ I said ‘Sorry, sir.’ But he did look like a witch a little bit.”
With their costumes in hand, the boys are looking forward to Halloween. “It’s a whole big ‘to do’ in our neighborhood,” Eddie shares. “People do up their houses and everything.” When the Hollywood hills prove too tough for tiny feet to tackle, there are other options. “Only in L.A. do you get a golf cart for when the kids get tired,” Eddie notes. “You pop them in the golf cart and you hit up all the homes in the neighborhood…they love it.”
