During his appearance, he revealed that he and Emma Roberts chose country star Tim McGraw to be the godfather of their newborn son Rhodes.

He explained that he looks up to the singer, whom he has worked with on movies like 2004′s Friday Night Lights and 2010′s Country Strong.

“He’s somebody that I admire and respect, not only as an amazing father and an amazing husband, amazing musician and amazing actor…I’ve known him for a long time,” Garrett said.

“We laugh about it because it’s probably been over 17 years since we did Friday Night Lights together, we played father and son. So I got to first experience him as a father — in that film, somewhat more of an abusive one — but then we did Country Strong together, and we’ve remained such close friends and, you know, I’ve seen his children, his daughters, from the time they were 1, 3 and 5,” he went on to say.

Emma recently gave a first glimpse at her son’s face!
