Alex Damian is not musically inclined

Despite being the son of one of Latin's most renowned artists, Alex has not shown interest in music. His father told Hola! USA that he will not limit his kids' career choices but will support them if they choose to follow in his footsteps.

I wouldn't like that because I understand how difficult and overwhelming this business is. But it would be selfish to limit or prevent a child who may carry it in his blood. I can speak for my eldest son because he has never been inclined towards music. But if Valentino or Solano decide, I will give them my unconditional support. I would advise them and help them to have a musical identity.

Since becoming a father, the bachata singer dedicates his work to his kids and tries to find time to be with them. During a September 2022 Q&A panel at Billboard's Latin Music Week, Romeo opened up about fatherhood and its challenges.

The kids always come first. I now bring food home every time I'm out, and I'm obsessed with my children.

The singer chooses not to put his kids in the spotlight until they are old enough to decide. In an interview with Hola! USA in early 2022, Romeo revealed that his kids are his greatest pride, and he chooses whether to share details of his personal life or keep them hidden.

I have always been very secretive, my greatest pride is my children. I believe that the artist has the right and control to choose what he exhibits and what he keeps. I know that some people want to see more, but that is something that I decide, and when they are older, they have the freedom to go out and present themselves as my children. When I revealed the identity of my eldest son, I asked him first. Alex made the decision.
