Just in case Milo Ventimiglia’s dapper suit didn’t make you fall in love with him during the Emmys, the actor also brought both of his parents to the awards show as his guests.
Ventimiglia received just one of the nine nominations for “This is Us”.
“My mom and dad are here,” he told E! News. “This is their first time. They declined the invite two years in a row, and this is the first time they wanted to be here.”
“They’ve always been supportive of me, to show them what this show is, is an experience,” he added after joking that he really had to convince his parents Carol and Peter Ventimiglia to join him.
“We are very proud,” Peter quipped.
Then things took an emotional turn as the actor spoke about what he has learned from his mom and dad.
“My mom and dad are very loving people. They raised my sisters and I with that, with the grace that they have,” he said while holding back the tears. “I can’t look at them too much or I’ll start crying… we need to give examples of coming together and showing love. It’s such a strength to show love.”
Ventimiglia has been celebrating Emmys weekend since Friday night, tweeting some photos of himself and pals at an Audi pre-Emmys party: “Celebrating the beginning of a fun weekend with the best.”
