This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia brought his parents to the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards. It was a dream come true for the actor after his mom and dad declined his invitation for the first two years.
Milo sadly didn’t take home the award for Outstanding Performance By A Lead Actor In a Drama Series, but in his eyes, he was already a winner. His mom and dad finally attended the awards show with the Hollywood heartthrob.
The actor was thrilled to walk the purple carpet with his mom, Carol and dad Peter. He made sure to let all the reporters know what an honor it was to have his parents by his side. Milo was beyond excited to be able to share such a unique experience with them.

“It was the right time, the right year, they’ve been excited, and they’ve always been supportive of me so to show them what this show is I think an experience,” he expressed to E! News’ Giuliana Rancic.
It may have taken some convincing to get his parents to be his dates at the awards show, but Peter and Carol have always been their son’s biggest cheerleader. The This Is Us star got choked up, praising his parents.
“My mom and dad, they’re very loving people, very supportive, raised my sisters and I with that, with the grace that they have just as human beings. I can’t look at them too much, I’ll start crying,” the actor proudly shared.
Mom and dad Ventimiglia are equally proud of their talented son but not just for his acting skills. Peter shared they are “very proud” of the man Milo has become. It was seriously one of the most adorable moments on the purple carpet.

After two years Milo Ventimiglia got to bring his parents to the Emmy Awards. The actor can thank Jimmy Kimmel for mom and dad’s change of heart. When the talk show host learned from Milo his parents had declined an invite to the Emmy’s last year, Kimmel called out Peter and Carol.
It turns out papa Ventimiglia does not like being embarrassed on national television. Now neither father or son admitted Kimmel was the reason for the change of heart, but the timing is mighty conspicuous.
The reason doesn’t matter. It only matters that Milo was able to attend the show with his mom and dad, something he wanted for years. Seriously could the This Is Us star be any more adorable?
This Is Us airs Tuesdays on NBC at 9/8c.
