The Live with Kelly and Ryan star's 25-year-old son is a talented actor in his own right, and recently opened up about growing up with his famous parents in an interview with People.

The Let's Get Physical star told the publication when asked whether or not he was embarrassed by his famous parents antics on social media: "I've always kind of maintained that my parents are cooler than me, so they don't really embarrass me. If anything, I'm worried about embarrassing them. But I've always taken what they do and who thy are with a lot of pride. I feel like I've won the jackpot."
