Father Dean McDermott talks more about his son Jack

“It’s so funny. He’s so quiet about who he’s dating. Like, he was just here, he came for four days. And we had dinner, and he’s like, ’So, yeah, I broke up with Steve.’ I’m like, ‘I didn’t even know you were going out with Steve. Like, you don’t tell me anything.’ He doesn’t tell me anything about his boyfriends. He’s like, ‘Yeah, We were going out for, like, a year.’ … I say, ‘Yeah, as a dude why don’t you tell me?’”

He further added:
“I didn’t hear it, I saw it turn, and I was like, ‘Oh, s–t,’ and then a crack of light. I jumped off and sat on the edge of the bed. He said, ‘Dad is everything OK?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I just got a migraine.’”
