And hopefully, when he grows up, he will be much better than me. That is what I pray for,” Trevor shared, reflecting on his hopes for his son’s future.

The proud father emphasized that every parent’s dream is for their children to exceed their own accomplishments.

By naming his son after himself, Trevor sets a baseline for success, aiming for his son to reach greater heights.

He acknowledged that his own achievements might not be viewed as significant by many, but he wants his son to build upon his accomplishments and strive for even more.

Regarding his decision to initially keep the news of his son’s birth private, Trevor spoke about the importance of maintaining a level of privacy.

However, he also recognized the significance of acknowledging his son’s presence and ensuring he felt valued.

“It is important to keep these things under wrap because, at the end of the day, nobody truly cares. At the same time, the reason I posted that photo today is that I do not want him to grow up and think I was not proud of him,” Trevor expressed.

He emphasized that as his father, it is his responsibility to protect his son while also celebrating his presence and achievements.
