“Daddy and Papa”: this is how one 9-year-old boy knows Alec Mapa and his husband Jamie Hebert. Mapa is “Daddy,” a title that the flamboyant actor says no other person besides his son can say to him with a straight face. A seasoned veteran of television in shows such as Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, and Heartland, Mapa stars in Baby Daddy, a film that features his one-man show covering various topics such as hosting gay porn awards and becoming a father.
Hosting porn awards is great comic material. But fantasies of the hard-on are secondary to realities of the heart. Mapa shines when he talks about what he and Hebert went through to bring their son Zion home, and bring him home for good.
