Noor Alfallah's son can be whatever he wants to be when he grows up – but there's one profession he might be well suited for.

In an interview with Vogue Arabia, the Kuwaiti-American producer, 30, opened up for one of the first times about her son Roman, whom she welcomed in June with partner Al Pacino, 83. "Becoming a mom — to be honest — it's greater than I ever could imagine," Alfallah told the outlet.

"Roman has just been the greatest gift from God, a thousand times better than what I ever thought he would be. Every day I look at him, I just know I'm so blessed. I say Mashallah, because I'm a little superstitious."

Alfallah notes that her son is a product of her own cross-cultural Arab-American background with Pacino's Italian one.

"I think that there are a lot of similarities between Italians and Arabs," she says. "And because he's an Italian Arab, I think he's for sure going to be a soccer player. No, I'm just kidding. I don't know. He can be whatever he wants to be."

"His dad, of course, wants him to be whoever he wants to be...I think acting is in his genes though," the proud mom admits.

In November, Pacino and Alfallah finalized the terms of child support and custody of their son Roman. The two agreed to joint legal custody over the infant, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

Alfallah, the petitioner, will have primary physical custody of Roman with "reasonable rights of visitation with and access to Roman."

With that, the two also agree that they "shall facilitate contact (i.e., by telephone or FaceTime) between the non-custodial parent and Roman when Roman is in her/his custody until such time as Roman is able to engage in such contact on his own."

When it comes to child support, the documents acknowledge that Pacino has "voluntarily paid varying amounts ... both prior to and after Roman's birth" and that there were no current debts between the two.

As of September, Pacino is ordered to pay $30,000 a month in child support. In addition to that base amount, Pacino will pay "an additional Ostler/Smith percentage of 6% of Respondent’s 'annual gross income' in excess of $2,500,000 per calendar year."

The paperwork also makes stipulations for the infant's future, stating that Pacino will contribute "the sum of $15,000 per year, commencing in 2023, to a 529 account to be established on behalf of Roman ... for purposes of Roman's educational expenses or such other expense as the Parties mutually agree."

Shortly after filing the custody agreement, Pacino and Alfallah confirmed that they were still together.

“Al and Noor have successfully worked together and have mutually reached agreements regarding their child Roman. They are still together," the actor's rep told PEOPLE in a statement at the time.
