Eric Mabius Is A Family Man

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Eric Mabius plays the womanizing editor-in-chief on Ugly Betty, but, in real life, he’s strictly a family man – even if he doesn’t have a lot of time to hang out at home.

Mabius, who was recently named one of People magazine’s sexiest men of 2006, says he’s earning major points at home for mentioning his wife and infant son, Maxfield, in all interviews and says it’s a way to let them know he loves them even though he’s pulling 70-hour weeks on the set.

He says his wife is doing her part as well and tries to keep up with the show when their son is napping because she “doesn’t like him watching TV” and says he was excited to learn that their baby recognized his voice.

Says Mabius: “His chair was turned away from the TV, but my wife says when he heard my voice he sat up, and was mesmerized by it – it’s good to know he recognizes me.”

Besides Ugly Betty, Mabius is co-starring with Dean Cain in A Christmas Wedding, which debuts December 11 on Lifetime.
