Truth: Regan also told Lorraine that despite his famous origins, he was not interested in staying in the spotlight, but quietly pursuing a career in dance
In the interview with Lorraine, Regan said he was not interested in following in his father's footsteps and pursued a career in music theater and dance.

& # 39; It was hard to grow up, but as I said, that was 11 years ago now & # 39 ;, he told Lorraine.
& # 39; I then said things that I still hate to this day because I say so, but when the cameras were in your face and your emotions were amplified, I was only 12. I knew not how I could express my emotions and feelings well. & # 39;
