This is the sweet moment Union J heartthrob JJ Hamblett’s three-year-old son took his first steps after having his second brain surgery.
A video shows Princeton J Alexander walking towards his mother, Caterina Lopez.
The little boy was recently diagnosed with a rare brain condition although the singer and his girfriend have not revealed the root cause of his illness.
In the adorable one-minute clip, a nurse helps to hold Princeton upright as Caterina encourages him to come towards her.
As he slowly puts one foot in front of the other, he defiantly tells his mother ‘I’m going to try it all by myself.’
‘In the past five months Princeton has been diagnosed with a rare brain condition that had caused him needing two life changing brain surgeries and multiple stays in and out of the hospital,’ his mother told Newsflare.

BRAIN SURGERY IN CHILDREN
Brain surgery in children is normally a result of a brain tumour, but youngsters can undergo gruelling operations for other conditions.
It is an option for children with epilepsy, with surgeons putting them under the knife in a bid to stop their seizures.
Surgery is also an option for children with hydrocephalus – a build-up of fluid inside the skull which can be deadly.
The lovely video, which is filmed by US based Caterina – saw JJ entering the room in the skin-tight get-up, based off the 1993 debuted live action superhero show.
His young son, still unaware as to who it is, runs up to give him a hung, before the X Factor star struggles to take off his mask.
Crouching down, the heartthrob picks away at the top of the costume, before a female pal lends him a helping hand – all documented by the model.
After his face is finally unveiled, young Princeton stares at JJ for a short while, before stating, ‘Daddy!’ – after being asked by his mum who it is.

JJ appears somewhat emotional in the short video, which sees Princeton donning hospital garb.
Sharing the video on Instagram, Caterina wrote: ‘Princeton immediately ran to his dad who he hadn’t seen for eight months as JJ Hamblett is based in London and just finished up a tour with his boy band Union J.’
‘Only the video can truly capture his adorable reaction when he realises it’s actually his father under the costume,’ she added.
