Actor Colin Farrell’s four-year-old son, James, was born with Angelman Syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes developmental delay and neurological problems. Despite being born with this syndrome, Colin says his son is an “incredibly happy boy” and he feels “incredibly blessed to have him in my life.”
The 31-year-old Irish actor sometimes forgets that his son with ex-girlfriend Kim Bordenave has special needs.
The actor, who shares joint custody with Kim, credits her for being so active in getting their son the help he needs. Colin is extremely proud of his son and the obstacles that he has had to overcome in his short life.
The actor is amazed at how things work out in life. Before his son was born, Colin led the Irish team to the Special Olympics to Croke Park. Little did he know his son would be born with special needs.
