Bert, now 8, was adopted from China as an infant by Pete and Jackie. The youngest of the family, Bert is adored by all. He's wide-eyed and innocent, curious, and kind. He plays the saxophone and soccer and likes to dance. In a hectic blended family it's easy to get overlooked, but he asserts himself by always speaking his mind, loudly.
Just as everyone loves Bert, he loves the rest of his family. He wants his mom to succeed and be happy, even lending a hand with her businesses. He has also taken a liking to Kate, seeing her both as a parent and friend.
