You can wish David Boreanaz "Happy Birthday" today (he turns 37), but don't even think of throwing him a surprise party. That's because, despite taking center stage in the crime drama Bones (whose season finale is Wednesday), he'd rather not be the center of attention off-screen. Boreanaz, once TV's sexiest bloodsucker on Buffy, the Vampire Slayer and Angel and now FBI agent Seeley Booth on his FOX show, is a lot more comfortable playing dad to 4-year-old son Jaden (with actress and former Playboy model wife Jaime Bergman). PEOPLE.com caught up with Boreanaz about his favorite part of being a parent and why he's put his vampire days behind him.
