After adopting the kid back then, he continued his studies at TSU, but regularly traveled home to check on him as he is being cared for by his mother, Elicie.
According to Jimmy, adopting the kid was never an easy decision since he is still a student, but he had to take a leap of faith.
He told The Sun:
“I had to do what I had to do when no one else wanted to do it, and I’m so grateful for the past four and a half years.
“I truly do feel like a father, and I’m excited to put pen to paper and make Emilio my son — I just need to raise the money first.”
The little boy who is named Emilio has grown.
