‘Ugly Betty’ Actor Confuses His Baby Boy

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ugly Betty actor Eric Mabius has one confused little TV critic watching his work from home.

Mabius – who plays Betty’s [American Ferrera] boss, conflicted Mode magazine editor Daniel Meade, in Ugly Betty – says one of his toughest critics is his 21-month-old baby boy Maxwell, who’s a little confused by Daddy’s TV gig.

Mabius says his toddler watches him on TV once in a while, but isn’t really impressed by Dad’s Ugly Betty performance.

He explains, “My wife will put him in front of the TV, but he’ll last about 30 seconds and he’s done. He hears my voice [on TV] and I think it confuses him a little bit. It’ll take a few years before he understands what’s going on.”

Ugly Betty returns to ABC with new episodes April 24.
