TV DIVAGAL: Emily Owens M.D. Hot Doc: Justin Hartley!By Delaina Dixon | November 6, 2012 | Entertainment
We know the reason youΓÇÖre watching Emily Owens, M.D. ΓÇô for hot doc Will Rider, played by none other than Justin Hartley!
You may know that Justin starred as the Green Arrow on several seasons of Smallville. But did you know that Justin is also a real-life dad to seven-year-old daughter Isabella?
We were also thinking that makes Justin even more adorable when we spoke with him at his networkΓÇÖs Summer Press Tour party, where we asked him about being a devoted dad. Read on for his adorable answers!
Do you remember how you first felt when you became a dad?
I remember feeling specifically that it took me back to where I should have been all along. It felt so familiar and right.
Do you get nervous every time Isabella does something new?
You do freak out over everything the first time it happens to your child. A bloody nose is the end of the world. She falls, and itΓÇÖs the end of the world.
WhatΓÇÖs the last incident that you freaked out about?
It was the worst thing. I picked Isabella up from first grade, walked in to get her and she looks at me and burst into tears. They were pain tears, I could tell. She wasn’t cut, it was heart hurt, so I run over to her and grab her. I snatch her up and asked what’s happened and she told me ΓÇ£so and so made fun of me.ΓÇ¥
Oh no! What happened?
Isabella had been laughing and a snot bubble came out of her nose and someone had laughed about it and it made my daughter feel terrible. That’s the worst. You’re like, ΓÇ£where’s their dad? I want to take this up with him.ΓÇ¥
How are you going to handle it when Isabella starts dating in a few years?
I’m not a guns at the door type of dad. What I’m going to do is meet the guy ΓÇô and itΓÇÖs ΓÇ£I just finished mowing the lawn, I don’t have a shirt on and I’m twice your size.ΓÇ¥ No, I’m not going to do any of that. Hopefully you’ve raised your child so well that she can handle herself on her own.
Sounds like a rational plan.
I’m still going to be a mess. (Laughs)
Catch Justin on Emily Owens, M.D. Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on The CW.
