'You' actor John Stamos wants to protect his 14-month-old son, Billy, from the "hatred" on social media.

The 55-year-old actor - who has 14-month-old son Billy with wife Caitlin McHugh - wants to keep his little boy "innocent" and away from negative trolls on the internet.

"I'm a softie. You say [kids can do] whatever they want to do. I'll tell you one thing - I don't know how yet, but the social media with kids [makes me want to protect him]. I don't think [I want him growing up in show business]," he wrote.

"We were having a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner at my house. She [my niece] kept her phone. Then, in the middle of dinner, she starts crying because somebody said something on social media and that hatred comes into your home. It's no good.

"[Billy is] the most beautiful baby. He's just so innocent. You want to protect him. You don't want this."

The Full House star thinks parenthood is the "best part of his life", even after everything else he's experienced.
