As Rob Lowe depicts a firefighter on 9-1-1: Lone Star, his character often finds himself in dangerous situations. But according to his son John Owen Lowe (which he shares with his wife Sheryl Berkoff)he may also need to protect himself in real life.
In a picture uploaded to John Owen’s Instagram on June 15, the Unstable the cast posed for a selfie during what appeared to be a family vacation. The image showed the father-son duo standing in front of an island while shirtless and wearing matching pairs of sunglasses. But as the two often love to roast online, John Owen couldn’t post the photo without shooting his old man.
“Feeling charitable,” he joked in the caption. “I decided to spend a few days babysitting this elderly person.” He further underlined the joke by marking AARPan organization dedicated to providing various forms of benefits to people over 50.
While John Owen was just making a hilarious joke about his dad being older than him, that didn’t stop fans from commenting on him and Rob. Additionally, some have even offered to share the “babysitting” load with John Owen in order to spend time with The west wing alum.
“Protect him at all costs,” one person wrote in Instagram’s comments section. “There are a LOT of people out there who would like to take it out of your hands,” another follower joked. “I mean I can babysit for him if you’re too busy!! 😂😂😂,” another added.
While Rob and John Owen definitely seem to have a humorous parenting relationship, the two share emotional moments with each other. During an appearance in April on The Drew Barrymore ShowRob presented his son with his five-year sobriety chip while declaring how proud he was of John Owen for his journey.
“Johnny’s five-year birthday was on Saturday,” Rob shared at the time. “And Johnny, I want to give you your five-year-old chip. I love you. I’m proud of you.”
