Father knows best. At least that's what Kelly Ripa's husband Mark Consuelos likes to think.
In a new essay for Men's Health, the Nine Lives star opens up about the man he never thought he'd become: his father.
"For better or worse, you always end up sounding like your dad," Consuelos writes of his father Saul Consuelos. "You never think it's going to happen … but when you become a parent, it just happens."
For Consuelos, 44, that means being a strong disciplinarian for his and brood with Ripa – Michael Joseph, 18, Lola Grace, 14, and Joaquin Antonio, 12 – and leaving the fun stuff to grandpa.
Below, a few fatherhood pointers Consuelos picked up from his old man.

Sure, she might send the accidental sexy pic to her in-laws, but she's also got the right idea when it comes to maintaining the spark in a relationship.
While she was visiting Watch What Happens Live Monday night, host Andy Cohen divulged something Ripa had told him in private. That is, because she and her husband, actor Mark Consuelos, have been together 18 years, they have to really go the extra mile to keep things interesting.

After nearly 17 years of happy marriage to Mark Consuelos, one thing can still really set off Kelly Ripa.
"I am openly hostile when Mark leaves the toilet seat up," Ripa, 42, told PEOPLE Tuesday at a private dinner in New York to honor her pal, Bravo star Andy Cohen, and his partnership with the retail site Gilt Man. "I don't think you get past the little pet peeves."
"Mark never puts the toilet seat back down, and it irritates me," she continued. "We still fight about it. But it's OK to fight about things. We're secure with each other. I don't feel like if we have an argument, it will be the end of our lives."

Call it an on-location family vacation.
Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan are taping four episodes of Live in Orlando, but the morning show co-hosts are also making time to embrace their inner children (and their real ones!) at Walt Disney World.
The Live co-hosts spent the day with their families at the park on Saturday, where Ripa rode the Epcot attraction Test Track with her kids Joaquin (next to Ripa), 9, Michael, 15, and Lola, 11.

Regis Philbin has greeted viewers nearly every weekday morning for the past 28 years, but with his final show only months away, the question still remains: Who will rise to the occasion and take over for TV's veteran talker?
American Idol and radio show host Ryan Seacrest, 36, Bravo personality and exec Andy Cohen, 43, and actor (oh, and Kelly Ripa's husband) Mark Consuelos, 40, are said to be Disney-ABC's top three picks to fill Philbin's shoes when he leaves Live! with Regis and Kelly in November, according to The Wall Street Journal.
