10. You’ll know you’re in yoga with me when you hear the instructor remind the class, “some people aren’t genetically flexible,” but I bet I can do as many pull-ups as you can. Well, maybe round one

Paternity Precedent: Actor Jason Patric Can Now Seek Custody of Son

Thanks to a landmark paternity decision, actor Jason Patric is now one step closer to seeing his four-year-old son Gus.

A California appeals court Wednesday reversed an earlier decision that said Patric couldn't seek custody.

That previous decision said because Patric and his ex-girlfriend conceived with in virto fertilization and they didn't have a signed contract agreeing to co-parenting, Patric didn't have paternity rights.

Wednesday's ruling opens up the precedent that sperm donors can appeal to take larger paternal roles.

And it means Patric can now present his case for custody in another court.

He'll be able to bring photos, videos, and other proof to a new judge that he is more than Gus's biological parent, but a father invested in being a part of his son's life -

"Everything that a father or a parent would have with their child I have. I was not able to show that in court before and now I can't wait to have that moment."

On "New Day" Thursday, Patric said it's been over a year since he's seen Gus.

"The last time I saw him, he said 'I'm missing you, Dadda.' I said 'I'll see you tomorrow,' and I've never seen him again."

Patric made that promise back in 2012.
