Former Aventura frontman Romeo Santos hasn’t always had a great relationship with his son. The 29-year-old Dominican-American singer admitted to turning his back on 10-year-old Álex for the first two years of his life.
“It wasn’t planned and I fled like a coward,” he told People en Español. “Our relationship was from a distance.” At 19, Romeo learned that his ex-girlfriend was pregnant after they had a chance rekindling of their romance.
The singer, who has gone solo with his first single "You", attributes his attitude to immaturity. “I said, ‘No, no, no.’ I felt like a kid having a kid.”
At least he's man enough to admit his mistakes now and has worked hard to be a better father.
