Julián Gil Confirms Date For DNA Test To Prove Matías Paternity

Julián Gil
The telenovela actor has scored another major win in his efforts to getting time with his son. Instagram

Julián Gil and Marjorie de Sousa have been embroiled in a nasty legal battle regarding their son Matías. Recently a judge approved a DNA test to be practiced on the baby to prove that Gil is his father and continue fighting for his rights. The date for the test has been set and it will be on Thursday, January 4, 2018, according to Univision Entertainment. The Televisa heartthrob has taken to social media to retweet news articles that reporte on the date and replied "amen" and "justice" on some of the posts. In the end, this is a step forward in trying to close this chapter that is affectong not only Julián and Marjorie, but Matías, who is not even a year old and has already been exposed to so much.

In mid-November, Gil scored a legal battle when the judge approved the DNA test to prove his paternity. "I am very happy because basically what I've been asking and that he has, as the Mexican Constitution states, that he know what's his origin," Gil told the press outside the court at the time (via Univision Entertainment). "Fortunately the judge accepted all the evidence and now we would need to set a date for the text in the upcoming days," he added. "I imagine and I want to imagine that [Marjorie] is very happy because we are going to know how things are and justice starts working."

Hours after the good news, Julián took to Instagram to share a touching message accompanied by a photo of the actor holding his newborn son. "Let the world know that you are my son," the caption read. "Thank you to the Mexican justice for ruling in our favor to prove that you Matías Gil have my blood. We will soon have the DNA test as the judged asked to."

Marjorie de Sousa previously blocked Julián Gil from spending time with his son outside of court, claiming the latter didn't give the name of the nurses who would be with the baby. Julián showed up in court, but Matías did not arrive. "I was left waiting for you my son," he wrote. "I've had difficult days and once again today the misses is making fun of everyone and my son Matías after months of struggles to be able to be with my son and the judge that looks over the case and is in my favor giving me the right to share time with my Mati outside of the court."

Gil went on to give the reasons why Gil was blocked from spending time with the baby. "They not only appealed, they also filed for protection alleging I can't be with my son because according to the mother she can't detach herself from her son because she needs to breast feed him," he explained. "Somebody explain how she does it as she spends all week in Miami and the baby is in Mexico. It's easy giving interviews and saying, 'I will never separate my son of his father' and on the other side doing the impossible so he can't be with him. Is it too much to ask for 4 hours every 15 days? What is the mystery?"
