"Always being there is the one constant thing that I remember about my father," Consuelos said. "Being present, being accessible and being supportive."
The proud father of three (Michael, 24, Lola, 19, and Joaquin, 18) also added that the most valuable thing he learned from his dad was the importance of "being available to your children when they need you" for support.
Consuelos has been very open about how much he looks up to his father on social media. In fact, in honor of Father's Day last year, he shared a sweet tribute to his dad on Instagram by posting a throwback family photo. He wrote, "Happy Father’s Day dad.. I learned it from you."
During our chat, the actor opened up about how he spends quality time with the kids. "I love our drives. Sometimes after a long day, we would go for drives and talk, and they love that. We don't drive to any particular place, but it's just to spend some time together, especially in Vancouver where it's so beautiful to drive up to the mountains. We had some great conversations."
