"Put Beachcombers back on the air and I'll call. (sic)," he replied, referencing the Canadian show which ran from 1972 until 1990.

"She's got me wrapped around her finger. It's the best. It's just going to be tea time every day," the doting father recently gushed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
