SIX FEET UNDER star Peter Krause praises his young son for being a calming influence on his otherwise hectic life.

Krause plays undertaker NATE FISHER in the popular American TV show, but in reality has a two-year-old son, ROMAN, with long-term partner CHRISTINE KING.

The devoted dad enthuses, "Being a parent is the most joyful and important position a person can have.

"You just want to sit in front of the child you created to see how he does things and watch how he grows."
