Russell previously raved about spending time with his nieces and nephews, telling PEOPLE, "We get to go on vacations and stuff in the summer and be able to see each other and hang out it’s nice. It’s funny — from 35 to 37 nothing changes but the 12 to 14 year olds, a lot changes so you want to be there as much as possible. I just try to spend as much quality time with them as I can."
