Both Hubert and Leslie are supportive and caring towards their kids as parents. The couple is quite cool about what direction their kids do follow. Hubert himself believes that he doesn’t feel any need to put pressure on his kids to put their foot in his shoes.

 

Hubert confirmed that his daughter adores lacrosse, and Micah is quite inclined towards soccer. It was Elijah who wished to go for basketball. All three siblings are making their parents proud in whatever they do. Since Elijah decided to opt for basketball, Hubert feels that his son has his own life and pace no matter if he has decided to follow the profession that his father is in, so people shouldn’t look upon him with the intention of comparing him with his father.
