MANILA, Philippines – James Yap shared the first photo of his newborn son, Michael James on Instagram on Tuesday, August 9.
The photo shows James looking lovingly at his newborn son who was being held by his Italian girlfriend, Michela Cazzola.
He captioned his post: “Thank you Lord that both of them are safe.”
Michela gave birth to Baby Michael James, who weighed 6.5 pounds, on Monday night, August 8 at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
According to an article published by Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), James shared that their newborn baby took after the features of Michela.
He said: “Kamukha ni Mic, ang hina ng dugo ng exotic. Authentic na Italyano ang nagwagi. Pero maliit pa, hindi pa natin masabi. Maiba pa ‘to, e,”
[He looks like Mic. The blood of the ‘authentic’ Italian overpowered the blood of the ‘exotic’. But he’s still small. There’s still a chance for his features to change.]
Baby Michael James is James’ third child.
He had an eldest child with his former girlfriend and of course, Bimby, his son with his ex-wife Kris Aquino.
According to a report by Ginger Conejero of ABS-CBN News, James expressed that he is happy because he can bring home his newborn son and get to watch him grow.
“Nakita ko rin naman ‘yung sa iba pero makakasama ko kasi ito, makikita ko ang bawa’t galaw,” he said.
[I also saw the others but this one, I can really be with him and watch his every move.]
James admitted that he still hasn’t told Bimby, whom he hadn’t seen for almost half a year now, about his baby brother. He is hoping that his children can meet one another one day.
