Justin Baldoni may be best known for playing Rafael on The CW's Jane the Virgin, but the 33-year-old actor is quickly building his reputation as an outspoken feminist and social activist. Back in October, his TED Talk called, "Why I'm done trying to be 'man enough'" -- which aimed to start a dialogue with men about redefining masculinity -- went hugely viral. Now, Justin is debuting a weekly web show, produced by his media company Wayfarer Entertainment and made possibly by Harry's, fittingly called Man Enough. The gist: Famous dudes from all corners of showbiz sit down to dinner to discuss what it means to be a man right now.

Following a private premiere screening of Man Enough's first episode on Wednesday, December 13, Justin and Emily sat down to talk to to Parents.com exclusively about the challenges they realize they'll face -- or are already in the midst of tackling -- with their L.O.s related to gender stereotypes. "I think that having a kid at all, whether it's a girl or a boy, it makes you think about humanity, like who we are as people," Emily shared.
