MANILA - The family of a 2-year-old 'genius,' who hails from the province of Batangas, became the seventh family to win P1 million on the hit ABS-CBN game show "Bet On Your Baby."

Leslie Alba, accompanied by his son Leroy and father Benching Mendoza, won the grand cash prize by breaking the right piggy bank on their second try in the jackpot round dubbed "Basagin ang Baboy."

The family took home a total of P1,010,000.

Known for his highly-impressive cognitive skills, 2-year-old Leroy was already featured in other Kapamilya shows such as "Rated K" and "TV Patrol."

Leroy's ability to write, count and even navigate himself through a desktop computer at such an early age earned praises from game show host Judy Ann Santos.

"Good job ka diyan, nanay," she said.

"Bet On Your Baby," which is part of ABS-CBN's "Yes! Weekend" offerings, airs every Saturday at 6 p.m. after "TV Patrol: Weekend."
