James Yap recently revealed that he has another child aside from James "Bimby" Yap Jr.
The basketball player told Tapatan Ni Tunying host Anthony Taberna that he has an older child with an ex-girlfriend.
“Actually, gusto ko lang magpasalamat sa ex-girlfriend ko na talagang kung anuman pinagdaanan ko, hindi siya nakisawsaw, hindi siya nakialam o siniraan ako."
In the same interview, he also talked about his improving relationship with former wife Kris Aquino and their son, Bimby.
Last April, James had the chance to join the 7th birthday celebration of his son.
As for his personal goals, James plans to quit his professional basketball career after six years, and eventually venture into coaching.
“Gusto kong mag-coach sa high school para sa mga bata. Para ma-share ko kung ano ‘yong experience ko, ‘di ba?
"Iba pa ‘yong feeling ‘pag nakatulong ka sa mga bata ’tapos makikita mo na lang silang nasa PBA [Philippine Basketball Association].”
Is settling down with his Italian girlfriend, Michela Cazzola, also a reason for his retirement plan?
“Ang pagpapakasal kasi, nandiyan lang ‘yan. Hindi naman nawawala ‘yan.
"Hinay-hinay lang. Darating at darating ‘yong oras na bigla lang maiisip mo, ’Okay, sige,’” said the 32-year-old cager.
