Stop, wait a minute!

While promoting Camp Halftime, his upcoming four-part comedic series launched by Pepsi, Donald Faison couldn’t help but touch on his music-loving 2-year-old son Rocco.

“Rocco’s really heavy into Bruno Mars‘ ‘Uptown Funk,’ like most people are,” Faison, 41, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“When it comes on, he’ll dance for the whole song. His favorite part is ‘Stop, wait a minute. Fill my cup, put some liquor in it.’ When that happens, ‘Julio, get the stretch,’ he does the dance moves, he stops, he calls Julio. It’s hilarious. He commands Julio to get the stretch.”

Faison, who shares two children with wife CaCee Cobb, says his youngest child, 8-month-old daughter Wilder Frances, has her own little quirk.

“Wilder has teeth coming in now and when she smiles it looks a little weird — that makes me laugh,” says Faison.

With the Super Bowl around the corner, the proud father is hoping to go to the game, but admits there might be some challenges.

“I’ve got two kids. Getting away from them is expensive and taking them with me is expensive,” jokes Faison. “I don’t know if you’ve ever been on a plane or a car for a long time with a child — it’s fun for them, but not necessarily for everybody else on the plane! These are things I’m learning.”

With two youngsters in the mix, Faison realizes that he probably won’t be able to give all of his attention to the big game, but he’s totally fine with it — just as long as he can watch Pepsi’s Halftime Show.

“The Pepsi Halftime Show has always — let’s be honest — been the highlight. The game is great and the score is great and the players are great and football is great, but the halftime show is what everybody is looking forward to,” he explains.

With Beyoncé and Coldplay expected to perform, we don’t blame him!

Why doesn’t he ever mention his older kids? He has 4 older kids…..sounds like he replaced them with the younger ones. Sad. You have 6 kids Donald, not 2.

His two little ones are adorable!

What?? on

His quote “…these things I’m learning” makes me wonder if he remembers his other kids and if he was ever present. Nothing should be “new”…. Only the current wife/baby-maker

And the Side Eye of the Year goes to…

Quite the achievement, since January ain’t even halfway finished. Ug. I can’t stand this deadbeat and have to miss out on Scrubs because I refuse to support this lying deadbeat. Damn shame too, Clueless was my ish.

His oldest it’s accepted to Harvard but had to decline because even with scholarships, it was too much money and this mofo cried broke AGAIN.

I wish he would just DISAPPEAR since he refuses to do right.

Only make comments if you know the facts. He knows he has six kids, but some mothers are gold diggers and when there is no gold they hold back the kids.
