Seth MacFarlane only has a couple of hours before he takes the stage to host the Oscars, but right now, he's as cool as a cucumber.

Or so says his family.

Seth's father, Ron, and sister Rachael walked the Oscars red carpet Sunday in Hollywood to support their family member. Ron, who had a bushy grey beard reminiscent of Santa Claus, was dressed in a kilt that Rachel got him for his birthday.

"I always wanted to wear a dress," he said with a smile. Even though the MacFarlanes are kin, they have been unable to get big show secrets out of Seth, they said.

"Well, he has run a few jokes by us, but he keeps everything pretty close to the vest," Rachael said.
