MANILA -- Star Hotshots’ James Yap and his Italian girlfriend Michaela Cazzola are expecting a baby boy.

In an interview with Philippine Star entertainment editor Ricky Lo, Cazzola said they are already thinking of a name for their baby.

“We have several names in mind for the baby but we haven’t chosen which one yet,” she said.

Cazzola, who confirmed that she was four-months pregnant in late February, is planning to give birth in the Philippines later this year.

Yap has been in a relationship with Cazzola since 2012, after his marriage to Kris Aquino was annulled.

The Star Hotshots' player has a son with Aquino and another child with an ex-girlfriend.

Yap might be forced to sit out the rest of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup eliminations following the calf strain he sustained during their defeat to San Miguel Beer last Sunday.
