I wanted to have a family like my parents. My parents are still together, you know. They raised [me and my sisters] together. That was my idea for what my life would look like. Obviously, that’s not the way it turned out. And I struggled with that a little bit when I first found out.”

Despite facing difficulties navigating the co-parenting role, he has put his son first. He added, “We’re doing our best to figure it out, just trying to do the best we can with the situation. I mean, a lot of people have obviously been in this situation before –having a kid with someone you’re not with – but knowing that doesn’t make it any easier.”
