>The actor, 42, is a dad at home and on the ABC Family drama, which returns Jan. 3.
WHAT SEPARATES PRETTY FROM OTHER TEEN DRAMAS?
On some levels it’s a guilty pleasure, but it’s really smart. It reflects the world I knew as a teen much more than the shows that were on then.
HOW IS IT BEING A FIRST-TIME DAD TO 19-MONTH-OLD MABEL?
It’s the greatest thing ever. She’s got me wrapped around her finger pretty tight! I love to get up and make her breakfast.
DID MABEL SHARE IN YOUR WEDDING LAST SUMMER?
We had a father-daughter dance. My wife, Kim [Painter], danced with her father and Mabel danced with me. Then we all sang her a goodnight song and put her to bed. It was really lovely.
