Actor David Boreanaz is desperate to spend time with his beloved 11-month-old son JADEN - and even lets him visit the set of dark TV series ANGEL.

The hunky star - who's married to ex-Playboy model JAIME BERGMAN - is currently working on the fourth series of the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER spin-off show.

But the 18-hour shifts greatly disturb his family lifestyle.

He says, "I bring Jaden to the set as often as I can. If I can't do that, when I get home and he's asleep I just go in and put my hand on his stomach to tell him I'm here.

"Or sometimes I rock the crib to wake him up and say hello. I can't resist it.

"In the mornings I see him when I leave and at the weekends I spend all my time with him, so it works out."
