The 39-year-old actor shares four children with his wife, Linda Baptista, and the couple recently celebrated their 18-year-old daughter Djanai’s graduation from high school. Even though every student and parent is proud of that achievement, it’s even more special because Djanai has cerebral palsy.
The actor gushed in an Instagram post: “Let me stress how proud we are of our oldest daughter…doctors didn’t give her that long. But she did it.”
He went on to explain the challenges and rewards of being the father of a developmentally challenged child.
“Being parents of a child born developmentally delayed with cerebral palsy, we are in awe of her strength, happiness, beauty, and focus,” the proud father added.
Linda also expressed her joy for sharing this moment with her family:
What a beautiful moment!
