TV to Watch: Alec Mapa’s “Baby Daddy”
Comedian and actor Alec Mapa has a one-man show on the Showtime cable network– “Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy” — where he jokes about the antics that ensured when he and husband Jamison Herbert adopted foster child Zion.
“I’m Asian, my husband is white, and our son is black,” Mapa said. “We look like the last two minutes from ‘It’s a Small World.'”
In a 2013 interview with SocialWorkersSpeak.org Mapa discussed the importance of social workers in helping him and his husband adopt Zion, including Robyn Harrod, MSW, from the Southern California Foster Family and Adoption Agency.
“Baby Daddy” is full of adult humor. However, Mapa gets serious several times when he talks about social workers, including the story of how a chance phone call made by a social worker united he and his husband with Zion after they had given up hope they could be his parents.
