Colin Farrell Talks About His Son James

Actor Colin Farrell, 31, could never stop loving his son, with or without a disorder. “He’s nothing but a gift,” Farrell says about his 4 year old son James, who has been diagnosed with Angelman, a neuro-genetic disorder.

Being a concerned parent, Farrell noticed signs of illness in James before his first birthday, with one of the symptoms being seizures. This genetic disorder can impair speech and movement throughout the body. According to People, James took his first steps last fall when he was 4.

During an interview with the Irish show Tubridy Tonight, Farrell stated, “As far as I’m concerned he’s exactly the way he should be.” The loving father added: “It’s not different to me. He has his own path. He’s just brilliant.”

Keep it up Colin. You’re doing a great job as a daddy!

    I’m happy how he is handling this.

    However, it doesn’t take “great parenting skills” to notice seizures in your baby.

    IF THEY WERE GIVING GOLD MEDALS IN TODAY SOCIETY COLIN FARREL SHOULD RECIEVE THE FIRST ONE. UNLIKE MANY OTHER MEN TODAY HE CHOSE TO RAISE HIS SON ALONE. EVEN WHERE THERE IS FATHER AND MOTHER BOTH, MOST MEN DO NOT MAKE TIME FOR THEIR CHILDREN. HE WILL BE BLESSED MANY TIMES OVER FOR CARING AND TAKING CARE OF JAMES.
