"Masaya, hindi ko ma-explain. Noon una, nung umiyak, talagang parang ang gaan ng feeling! Hindi ko ma-explain," said new dad James Yap about the birth of his son, Baby James.

"Masaya, hindi ko ma-explain. Noon una, nung umiyak, talagang parang ang gaan ng feeling! Hindi ko ma-explain," said new dad James Yap about the birth of his son, Baby James, in a taped interview with The Buzz yesterday, April 22.

He added, "Ang haba ng kamay! Sana maging mana sa akin, di ba? Kasi nakikita ko na mahaba talaga ‘yong paa tsaka mga kamay. As a dad, talagang pumasok diyan sa isip mo na bigyan mo ng magandang future ‘yong baby na ‘to."

Baby James is James's firstborn with his wife Kris Aquino. The TV host-actress delivered the baby on April 19, two weeks earlier than Kris's term.

"Nasaktan na siya [Kris] nung tinurukan na siya nung... Hindi ko nga alam kung ano ‘yong tinurok dito sa likod. So iyon. Doon nakikita ko, talagang kawawa, nanghihina ako," narrated the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) cager.

Kris was injected with an epidural anesthesia—a form of regional anesthesia, according to www.answers.com.

He continued, "‘Hinihiwa na ba ako?' [tanong ni Kris]. Ganyan. ‘Hinihiwa na ba ako? Lumabas na ba?' Kasi wala siyang nararamdaman. Sabi ko, ‘May nararamdaman ka, Babe?' Sabi niya, ‘Wala.'

"Kasi one time daw, ‘yong sa sister niya, may nararamdaman daw na hiniwa daw sa tiyan. Sinabi niya sa doctor na, ‘Sana wala akong mararamdaman na ganoon ha.'"

James immediately called his father Carlos Yap, who lives in Escalante, Negros, to announce the good news.

"Bakit daw napaaga," James said about his father's reaction. "So ‘yon, tinanong niya, ‘Ilang pounds?' Sabi ko, ‘Maliit.' Sabi niya, ‘O, sige. Ingatan mo si Kris.' Ayon, happy sila. Si Mama, hindi ko pa nakakausap."

With the new addition to the Aquino-Yap household, Kris and James are training Joshua—Kris's son with former partner Philip Salvador—how to take care of his baby brother.

James, 25, revealed how his new son gave him a new goal in life.

He explained, "Double-time talaga sa work mo para mabigyan mo ng magandang future ang baby."

Then James, who had just gotten embroiled in a third-party controversy, said, "Talagang love na love ko ang asawa ko dahil nakita ko ‘yong... Kasi andoon ako, e, talagang ang hirap pala talaga.

"Iingatan ko na talaga ‘tong relationship na ‘to. And siyempre palakihin namin ‘yong baby na buo iyong family."
