With two teenage daughters in the house, William H. Macy is ready for what’s to come: boys. And the 68-year-old actor doesn’t have a typical “stay away from my girls — or else” mindset when it comes time for them to date.

“You know, I started doing all the clichés, ‘I’m gonna threaten the guys, I’m gonna dig a moat around our house,’” Macy says to Us Weekly. “And then I thought, OK, what do you really want for your daughters? And I realized: I want them to be happy and lusty and safe.”

Macy and wife Felicity Huffman have two children, Sofia, 17, and Georgia, 16.

“I want them to have a lot of sex in their lifetime! Good, healthy wonderful sex with no guilt,” he says. “That’s what I really want.”

The Shameless star admitted that “boys are in the picture.”

“They’re different than when I was a kid. Georgia and Sofia have all their pals over. They will have six or eight of their friends over,” he shares. “It’s pretty bizarre, especially with Sofia, to wake up in the morning and there’s some boy walking out of your daughter’s room! They all sleep together! I don’t think they have sex … well, I know they don’t.”

Unlike his character on Shameless, Macy is quite the doting dad. Case in point, sweet moments like this with Sofia.

Macy says Sofia has the acting bug. “I think she’s firmly in the tribe,” he reveals to Us. “She’s good. I’ve seen her in a lot of plays.” As for Georgia she is into political science.

Huffman occasionally shares photos of the girls on social media.

Sofia and Georgia certainly have great role models in the relationship department, whenever that time comes. Huffman and Macy have been married nearly 21 years and have been together for the better part of 35.
