If you’re still mourning Jack Pearson’s death on This Is Us, then you should know that Milo Ventimiglia is here to help.

Ventimiglia recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and discussed fan reactions to the beloved character’s death. When the 40-year-old started talking about specific encounters, he admitted that most fans just want him to fulfill their IRL Jack void (dad hugs and all).

In the clip, Kimmel reads a series of tweets featuring fan reactions to the “Super Bowl Sunday” episode. But the real fun begins at the one-minute mark when Ventimiglia recalls two real-life encounters and reveals that he reacted in the most Jack Pearson way possible.

He says, “A lot of people, they want a hug. They don’t really ask me for advice, but they want that paternal knowing that things are OK.”

Thank you, Milo. We really needed this.
