Holly Robinson Peete posed with her well-dressed 12-year-old son RJ at the 2010 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. on Wednesday (July 14).
Holly recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about RJ, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3.
RJ is going on 13. Loves all sports; MLB especially. By the way: Puberty plus autism? Challenging! Even more than for typical adolescents. It can cause aggressive behavior and depression. Big transitional hurdle. Another thing you don’t read too much about. We are seeing some regression which is not fun. But he is verbal, affable, he has friends and plays team sports – all of which we were told he’d never do.”
Holly and her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, are also parents to Ryan, 12, Robinson, 7, and Roman, 5.
