Actor John Lloyd Cruz expressed his honest thoughts and sentiments as he opened up on becoming a parent with her former partner, actress Ellen Adarna.
In an exclusive interview for Mega Entertainment with G3 San Diego, John Lloyd talked about him being a father. During the interview, John Lloyd revealed that was not surprised when Ellen got pregnant because they both ‘wanted it’.
“Hindi siya ganun kadali. Parang pang pelikula lang pala yung ano—yung parang nalaman mo parang, ‘Magiging tatay na ako!’. Para sa akin hindi. I mean, kung ano yung nangyari sa akin, hindi. To each its own. Baka naman sa iba, totoo ‘yun and you can never tell kung ‘yun ay totoo o hindi. Okay yan, ‘yung nangyari sayo. Pero para sa akin… We wanted it eh. Alam naman na namin na it was going to happen,” John Lloyd shared.
John Lloyd also shared that when baby Elias was born, he and Ellen were both dealing with personal issues.
“Halu-halo kasi siya eh. Ang dami nangyari at that time… like yung father ni Ellen (Adarna) passed away two weeks before pinanganak si Elias and she was going through motherhood, becoming a mother and our own personal issues. ‘Diba parang lahat ang dami nangyari. And halos walang time actually to reflect on what’s happening on a day-to-day basis.” John Lloyd shared.
“And I was going through my own…So ngayon lang talaga nung nakita mo na and humahaba na yung mga araw—‘ diba parang andyan na siya. Totoong responsibility na. Oo, pupunta kayo ng doctor… So, siguro sa akin lang, it’s a process na—kapag kasi masyado ka na nag re-reflect about the process, para siyang ‘life happens when you’re so busy planning.’”
” Para siyang ganun. But ‘pag may mga random or mga unexpected na conversations and you actually ponder on being a father, ‘yun lang naman talaga yung time na mapapaisip ka na, ‘Oo nga noh?’ Kasi napaka-ano niya eh, matrabaho siya so—parang practical siya.It’s very physical as well, so nandun ka sa physicality of being a father, parang minsan lang naman yung mapapaisip ka and mapapa-reflect ka na, it feels nice ah,” John Lloyd added.
