It looks like James Yap will be raising a future basketball heartthrob in Baby Michael James, his one-year-old son with Italian girlfriend Michela Cazzola.
According to PEP, Baby MJ is already showing great potential in basketball.
The entertainment site talked to Michela through Instagram Direct.
Michela said about her son: "At home, he runs everywhere, he likes to play with ball and play with the dog. He doesn't really like to sit for a long time!"
MJ has his own basketball ring at home where he likes to play ball with his dad.
Here's a video that James posted late in 2017.
MJ also has his own real basketball.
The father and son also loves running around together in the park.
James wrote on his caption: "Habulan with my bugoy #fatherandson #bonding #love"
Bugoy is a Visayan term meant to convey affection for a little boy.
Michela said MJ is "extrovert and curious."
She added that "he loves people... he's very curious, observes a lot what people around him do. He's playful and happy to meet and stay around people."
And he also loves animals.
In a recent Instagram post, Michela shared a video of MJ happily walking a dog in the street.
The dog belonged to a kind stranger who let Michael hold his dog.
The cutie already speaks three languages: Italian, English, and Filipino.
Michela admitted that Baby MJ is a combination of her and James, both in terms of physical and personality aspects.
"Some people say he looks like me, others say like James, but in fairness he's really a mix. In terms of attitude, he's talkative, so that's me. But he also observes a lot and that's from James," said Michela to PEP.
Michela gave birth to baby MJ on August 8, 2016.
James and Michela are expecting their second child.
James has two other kids from his previous relationships.
One is with a non-showbiz girlfriend and the second is Bimby Aquino-Yap, his son with former wife Kris Aquino.
Doctors had no idea what's wrong with Angelo. His mom is in pain watching her son suffer. This family needs money for appropriate medical checkup that would allow to set diagnosis. All together we can help! Find Marlyn Rosamiran's contact details in the end of the video.
