"I Love Watching Cartoons With Him"

Jason Derulo is a doting dad! The recording artist recently spoke exclusively with PEOPLE that his son, Jason King Derulo, brings out his inner child.


“I love to watch the things that I love to watch with him,” Jason shared with PEOPLE. “I think he’s still young enough where he doesn’t really understand what he’s watching, but I love watching cartoons with him too,” the celebrity father gushed. “I think he brings out the child in me again.”

Jason King Derulo was born on May 8, 2021. He made Jason Derulo and his then-girlfriend, Jena Frumes, parents for the first time. Jason and Jena ended their relationship as intimate partners a few weeks ago. The celebrity parents still maintain harmony, however, which produces good co-parenting.

“It’s a beautiful thing [that we can support each other], especially given our new relationship: co-parenting,” Jason Derulo told PEOPLE. “We have an amazing relationship, and we don’t care if we’re confusing people about our situation because our situation is our situation,” the celebrity father added.

“We love [our son] more than anything, and his wellbeing is really important to us,” Jason Derulo further explained. “I’m really attentive of (sic) her wellbeing as well, and I want her to be good. I care about her a lot.”

Derulo cares about the mother of his son and loves the opportunities that fatherhood brings. “It’s amazing to share all the first times with him,” Jason said of bonding with his son. “The first time he had a strawberry and the first time that he actually paid attention to what was on the television,” the celebrity dad beamed. “I can’t wait until he says ‘dada’ because I think that’s probably going to be his first word,” Derulo mused.

Jason Derulo and Jena Frumes were engaged to be married before deciding to end their relationship as love partners. The celebrity parents will celebrate their son’s first Christmas next month.
