Ah, celebrity parents — they're just like us! They have precious nap time interrupted by their babies, they devise clever tricks to avoid cursing around their youngins, and yes, they get wildly protective when their children start venturing into the world of dating. Justin Hartley hilariously proved that last bit when he stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week and opened up about how his teenage daughter, Isabella, has started going on dates. "I just want to crawl in a hole and die," he confessed right off the bat. Isabella, who Justin described as "15 going on 50," is from Justin's previous marriage to Lindsay Korman.

"I've never loathed anything more in my life because I loved her first."

The This Is Us actor went on to further drive home just how un-thrilled he is about his baby girl exploring this aspect of adolescence."I know it's a natural thing; it's a healthy thing. She's wonderful. She's sweet. She's responsible. She's great. She's earned the trust," Justin prefaced, quickly adding, "But I hate it — I hate all of it." The 42-year-old father (yep, he's actually 42, even though he doesn't look a day over 30) admitted that he's "never loathed anything more" than the thought of Isabella dating. "I loved her first," he said, adding that he's yet to meet a suitor of Isabella's that's lived up to his standards.
