Brian Bonsall is a proud dad of his newborn son. He shared the sweetest video as he lay next to the adorable tot.


"Don't call me CHUBBY...I'm all muscle," read little Oliver Leon Bonsall's navy blue onesie which he wore while laying on a light green blanket next to his doting father.

Former child star Brian Bonsall was the focus of the newborn's attention as the two lay side by side on the floor. The post is found below.

Brian, 37, wore a white t-shirt that covered most of his arm and neck tattoos. He also had on a pair of glasses as he looked at the phone while recording his son's precious expressions.

"What's up?" he asked little Oliver, who was busy making a range of funny expressions next to his dad. At one point, he stretched his tiny arms and lay a protected hand on his father's head.

Brian had no caption posted for the sweet clip. The comment section, however, was filled with fans whose hearts melted at the sight of the adorable father-son duo.


Brian shares Oliver with his wife Courtney Bonsall. Their son was born on August 24 weighing 6 lbs 8oz. In the announcement post, Brian called his wife his "hero."

He added that both Courtney and Leon hold his heart and that seeing his son was "true love at first sight." All of Brian's Instagram posts since then have featured his son.


Best known for his roles on "Family Ties" and in the "Star Trek" franchise, Brian is now a musician. He reportedly tours with the band "The Ataris."

Before his career took off and he started a family, Brian got in trouble with the law several times over the years. He was arrested twice in the late 2000s for allegedly harassing and assaulting a past girlfriend.

In 2010, he got caught with marijuana, which was a violation of his release terms at the time. Brian has since turned his life around for the better and is happy with where he stands now.
