On the same episode of Ranch Rules, James explained, "I was scared to tell, like, I don't know how he's gonna take it. When I had my first child, Mia, I had to ask him for money, and I didn't want him to think that I was as immature as I was."

However, his father, Billy, wished to have known about Nikita's birth. 

In a confessional, James stated, "My dad traveled a lot when we were kids, but it didn't matter how much he worked. He would always make time for me and my brother. Now that I'm a dad, I try to do the same thing my dad did for us. I'll do anything to make them happy. I love being a dad."
