Though Joey Lawrence grew up surrounded by his brothers, Matthew and Andrew Lawrence, he is now the only guy in his family, as he shares teenage daughters Liberty and Charleston with ex Chandie Yawn-Nelson and daughter Dylan Rose with wife Samantha Cope.

"It's so crazy. It was always all boys — the boys outnumbered the girls! Ever since my first daughter was born in 2006, the girls now outnumber me everywhere I go. It's the weirdest thing. I'm usually the only guy since my daughters usually have friends with them. I am like, 'Wow, this is crazy,' but I am perfect for the girls!" the 47-year-old exclusively tells Morning Honey while talking about his partnership with LISTERINE and their newest line of mouthwashes, Clinical Solutions, developed with dentists and hygienists to tackle top oral care issues including early gum disease, tooth decay and persistent bad breath.

Joey Lawrence has three daughters.

"I'm good, though! I've learned to survive and thrive," he quips.

As for how the Blossom star bonds with his kiddos, he admits they have similar interests. "It's really fun to shop with them and pick out stuff and go over their fits. It's cute. My oldest daughter and I both love Jordans, and Libby is now obsessed with them, too. It's mind-blowing to see the Adidas Samba shoes make a comeback! We talk about makeup and skincare, and they inform me about products. We also love Disneyland and Disney, so we always go together," he shares. "We also watch old school movies like Peter Pan. I made them watch that as a kid and they loved it."

The star said he wouldn't mind any of his girls going into showbiz.

Since the podcast host got famous at such a young age, he isn't opposed to his girls also going into showbiz.

"If that was their calling and they felt like that was their divine purpose, I wouldn't deny them of that opportunity," he says. "I'm glad my mom didn't deny it for me. There are ups and downs, but I'm so happy I had the opportunity to do something that I love to do for so long. Both of my eldest can sing. They truly have incredible voices. They blow me away! They sound like Ariana Grande. It's pretty incredible. I don't know if they'll do anything with that, but I often talk to them about singing a duet with one another."

Additionally, Joey's eldest daughter was in a movie he produced for Lifetime called A Deadly Deed. "She played my stepdaughter in that, and she was excellent," he gushes. "She loved it, but she didn't want to do it for a while. She's turning 18, so maybe we'll circle back to that. She loves to draw and is an incredible artist. She loves design and interior design, and she can sing and act. She's still figuring it all out."

"It was totally different with me because at 5 years old, my mom saw that I had the passion and we went for it," he recalls. "My girls have taken a totally different path because that's their journey. I don't know where it will end up, but they've got the talent. I don't know if they'll utilize it in that way, but I would certainly help them in any way I could if that's what they wanted to do."

Clearly, the Lawrence brood is oozing with creativity. "My parents can both sing their butts off! My dad has got one of the greatest voices I've ever heard. They were in bands growing up, but they went the more traditional route. My mom can act, but she become a school teacher while my dad sold insurance," he says. "But they both have talent for sure."

Since Joey's character in Blossom, Joey Russo, constantly said "Whoa" throughout the series, it made perfect sense for him to partner up with LISTERINE, especially since it's always been a staple in the star's bathroom.

Joey was excited to upgrade his oral care routine with their newest line, Clinical Solutions, which was developed with dentists to tackle and help prevent top oral care issues. Since he occasionally experiences red, irritated gums, he personally uses LISTERINE Clinical Solutions Antiseptic Gum Health and “WHOA,” he can feel the difference.

Actor Joey Lawrence picks up new LISTERINE Clinical Solutions at Walmart.

"I always used LISTERINE products as a kid, and when this LISTERINE Clinical Solutions came along, it's just miraculous! We were talking about it on our 'Brotherly Love Podcast,' and LISTERINE got ahold of us. They sent me this new line because I was talking about my teeth, and they were like, 'You've got to try this.' I tried it and said, 'Whoa.' I just instantly felt better. I said to myself, 'You did not just say 'Whoa.' I said it in my own voice, not as my character or anything like that. I then told them it made me say 'Whoa,'" he explains. "I was like, 'I can't believe I just said that.' People say that all the time around me and even people in meetings will say it to me. It was really love at first sight!"

"It then all came together. This felt right to me. My girls use it, too. This stuff works!" he adds. "It's an amazing product!"
