- James Yap has a new son with Italian girlfriend Michela Cazzola
- The newborn child was delivered at St. Luke’s Medical City, Taguig
- Michael James is Yap’s first child with current girlfriend
In the evening of August 8, James Yap once again became a proud father. Yap’s Italian girlfriend, Michela Cazzola gave birth St. Luke’s Medical City in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
They named the healthy baby Michael James, which came from both Yap and Cazzola’s first names. Michael James weighed 6.5 lbs when he came out.
Yap and Cazzola plan on giving Michael James all the attention he needs. They also plan to get married, but they will put it off for the mean time to take care of their newborn son.
Yap has exciting plans for his kid and talked about bringing him to his basketball games in the future.
This is the first child for both Cazzola but for Yap, this is his third child. He had a child with his non-showbiz partner, then had Bimby with ex-wife Kris Aquino, and now Michael James.
When asked regarding if his second child knew about Michael James, Yap answered that Bimby doesn’t know yet but he plans to tell him personally. He would also like the two to meet and hopes that they will get closer in the future.
