AFTER welcoming a new backcourt partner at TNT KaTropa, Jayson Castro welcomed a new member of his own family.

The Texters superstar didn’t get to practice with new teammate Terrence Romeo on Monday at Moro Lorenzo Center in Ateneo as he had to look after his wife, who gave birth to their second child and first daughter on Sunday.

TNT team manager Virgil Villavicencio confirmed the good news of Castro’s second baby after son David.

“Kumpleto na siya: one boy, one girl,” Villavicencio said.

Castro texted TNT coach Nash Racela after practice to apologize that he couldn’t make it, saying he barely had sleep.
