Why Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s Kids Now Call Jeff Probst “Dad”

See, this is the kind of thing that drives Brandi Glanville crazy, but for some families it works.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar and ex-wife Lisa Ann Russell have two children together. Now they are re-married to different people — Lisa to Survivor and talk show host Jeff Probst, who talked about the relationship recently on Larry King Now (via the New York Post).

Jeff said he gets along well with the Saved By the Bell actor, and he praised both parents — who were married for almost 15 years — for raising their kids with love.

Jeff now considers himself not just the kids’ stepfather but a second dad. “Y’know when it locked in? When we were together before we got married, they were playing with it,” Jeff said. “Sometimes it would be dad, sometimes it would be Jeff, Dad Two, sometimes it’d be D-2.” Once Jeff and Lisa wed, in 2011, Jeff became "Dad," along with Mark-Paul.

What do you think about that? For some families, there is only one “Mom” or “Dad” and no step-parent could share the title. But if this works for them, even after such a short period of time, more power to them.
