“It’s so unique. It’s something I can’t really explain. You know he’s something that is a part of you and the truth is I live a dream…Awake or asleep, every hour of the day, because I have my son by my side. And just to think that I have a son and that he’s going to inherit everything that I have…it’s so amazing to me.
I often play with him. I’m always available when he needs me…He speaks a lot already. Of course he’s still learning, but what he says the most is “papá” [daddy], “carro” [car] and “bola” [ball].
At the moment he keeps singing that song by Michel Teló…”Ai, ai, ai…hm…ai, ai…” He only knows the chorus. And then I always look at him and say, “Are you in pain or what?” and he smiles and stops. He’s the most important thing in my life.”"
