Ted Danson Reveals He’s A Grandfather, Dermot Mulroney Talks Fatherhood

New grand-daddy, Ted Danson, and father of three, Dermot Mulroney, spent some time after filming their lastest movie Big Miracle to discuss family and work.

The former Cheers star, Danson, became a grandfather for the first time two weeks ago and shared the happy news with Breezy Mama.

“I think the reason why I took CSI, which is what I’m doing now, which is in town, with this great cast, great crew, but, to be here in Los Angeles and to be able to be at the birth and to be able to hang around and babysit and do all of that and not be in Anchorage, Alaska. And to be able to work in town at my age is such a treat. I’m so grateful.”

Mulroney has been a traveling daddy this past year working on numerous movie roles. It made spending time with Sally, 2, Mabel, 3, and older son, Clyde, 12, a little more difficult. When asked if he chooses his movie roles differently now that he has kids, he says, “I’ve never turned down a good part. You know what I mean?” He elaborates on his Big Miracle part, “But, when one like this comes up I jump at the chance because of that.”

Mulroney shared his feelings on being a full-time working parent and how it affects his family.

“I find challenges with that all the time, and sometimes it’s almost impossible to manage, without going into too much detail. I get along with everybody in my family diagram. Last night, for example, I’m happy to announce I get the chance to do a sitcom with Zooey Deschanel on The New Girl. So, I worked until two in the morning last night, which, it started at nine. They have really long days on this show, and you see the results are fantastic.”

Danson and ex-wife Cassandra “Casey” Coates are parents to daughters Kate and Alexis. He is also stepfather to wife Mary Steenburgen‘s children, Lily and Charles.

Mulroney and wife Tharita Catulle are parents to Sally and Mabel. He shares son Clyde with ex-wife, actress Catherine Keener.
