MANILA - Basketball star James Yap has aired frustrations over the lack of time with his son Bimby.
In an interview with radio station DZRH, Yap, as quoted by Pep, said that he only wants Bimby to know that he has a baby brother. Earlier in the week, Yap and his Italian girlfriend, Michela Cazzola, welcomed their first child.
"Ang iniisip ko kasi, magkapatid sila; paglaki nila, magkakilala sila. Why not, 'di ba? Mabuting makita niya ang baby brother niya," he said. "Sinabi ko naman talaga na anytime, kung gusto niyang makita. Sana magkaroon siya ng time."
Yap, however, admitted that he has yet to speak with former wife Kris Aquino about the matter, citing lack of "time" and "chances."
"Mahirap eh. Mayroon kasing nangyari before na medyo hindi maganda rin. So, wala. Honestly, parang ano… gumive-up na rin ako. Kasi sobrang, parang walang napapatunguhan eh. Ang effort mo, lahat, parang hindi nadi-develop."
"Nag-decide na lang ako na, tutal magkaroon din siya [Bimby] ng isip, lalaki rin siya at magkakaroon din siya ng isip sa sarili niya, hintayin na lang natin yung time," he added.
Instead, Yap said that his focus, at the moment, will remain on his newborn son, Michael James. Clearly excited about becoming a father anew, he described himself and Cazzola as "hands-on" parents.
"Iba ito ngayon kasi dalawa lang talaga kami nag-aalaga; pati sa pagpalit ng diapers, lahat," he shared.
