Jeffrey Dean Morgan didn't have the usual nine months to get used to being a daddy.
The "Watchmen" star recently found out that he and actress/producer Sherrie Rose have a child together, reveals Us Weekly.
A source claims that Morgan, 42, was "shocked and surprised," but intends to be in the boy's life.
The actor learned the news a few weeks ago and has since met the 4-year-old.
Rose is one of Morgan's ex-girlfriends. He previously dated and was engaged to "Weeds" star Mary-Louise Parker, but they broke off the engagement in April 2008.
Morgan is used best known for playing dead or nearly dead characters, whether it's Denny Duquette on "Grey's Anatomy," dad John Winchester on "Supernatural" or Judah Botwin on "Weeds." His film career is ramping up though, with last year's "P.S. I Love You," the "Watchmen" adaptation and the upcoming "The Accidental Husband".Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
