Gabby Alipe‘s son Jacob is five years old now, but like any parent, Alipe still sees his little cub as a baby.

“This is how I still see you even though I know you’re getting bigger and smarter everyday. I now understand why my parents still see me as their baby (continues to treat me like one).” Alipe shared on Instagram with a series of photos of Jacob growing up. “You’re the best thing that ever happened in my life and I’m grateful everyday that I was blessed and chosen by the universe to be your dad. I’ll always be here for you and give you the stars if you want.”
