Rob Lowe recently shared his stance on being a dad to adult sons, giving a closer glimpse at his relationship with them.

The Unstable actor and his kids visited his alma meter Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica High School in a new partnership with AncestryDNA, where he expressed his feelings on an emotional level.

Reflecting on his visit, Rob told PEOPLE that it was a “great father-son” bonding for all three of them.

He quipped: "It was unbelievable going back, in particular because my boys were there. There was also the nostalgia of it. I haven't set foot there in Santa Monica High School in 40-plus years. I've not been there since I left to shoot the movie The Outsiders."

Opening up about the experience, he added: "Of course, some of it is exactly the same. Most of it is different, and then you're just overwhelmed by the history. I started feeling feelings like I was 16 and 17 again. And then, of course, I'm standing there with my two sons who are looking at me like, 'Dad, get over it.' "

In addition, he also talked about the traits he passed along to sons John Owen and Matthew, pointing out the evolution process, referring to the change that comes with fatherhood.
