Most of us would agree with the fact that deciding on becoming a parent is one of the hardest decisions you will ever make in your life. As much as women dream of becoming mothers, there are also men who dream of becoming fathers to their own kids. However, becoming one comes with great responsibilities.
Jericho Rosales, one of the most successful actors in the Philippine showbiz industry, shares the exact same sentiment. Although it has been four years since he married wife Kim Jones, Jericho admitted that the two of them are not ready yet to have a baby.
As reported on Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), the actor, who is already a father to his teenage son Santino, shared that he is too busy with work to focus on his personal life.
“I’m not ready to be a dad. Not yet. Wala pa, e, wala pang time, wala pang masyadong time for family and friends,” he said.
Rosales said that he and Jones would only like to enjoy each other’s company whenever they have time for one another.
“Na-realize lang namin na we’re not yet ready,” he reiterated. “When we have time, we just spend it together. Parang feeling talaga namin as a married couple, andami pa naming kailangang pag-aralan sa isa’t-isa and enjoy-in yung time namin sa isa’t-isa.”
“Para mag-grow pa kami as a couple, we’re not really rushing, andami naming pamangkin. It’s difficult, very difficult. Nakikita namin yung mga kaibigan namin na may mga anak sila and full time,” he added.
When asked if he is ever envious of friends with kids, Rosales stated that such a feeling never came about.
“Hindi nga, kasi alam naming hindi namin kakayanin, e. Hindi naman kami ang mahihirapan kapag ano, yung baby naman. Di ba pag walang time, yung baby yung kawawa,” he added.
