John Lloyd Cruz talks about both his joy and struggles of being a father to his 2 year old son with Ellen Adarna, Elias Modesto.
On his interview with Rachel Arenas, chairperson of Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) for MTRCB Uncut YouTube show, the 37 year old star shares his realization as he enters fatherhood.
“How did your life change nung dumating sa buhay mo yung anak mo?” asked Arenas.
To which John Lloyd replied with, “Siyempre ano, para kang nagkaroon ng bagong buhay.”
When asked about his dreams for his son, John Lloyd said that he would rather support Elias with anything he wants in life than set a selfish goal for the sake of his own satisfaction.
“Hindi ko alam kung big na yun para sa akin. I’m sure yung dreams niya will be so much bigger, ‘no.
“Pero para sa akin, magawa lang niya kung ano talaga, kumbaga, hangad ng damdamin niya or kung ano ang gusto niyang gawin.
“Kung gusto niya maging astronaut, kung gusto niya maging tambay, kung anong gusto niyang gawin… kumbaga, susuporta lang ako.”
Elias will be turning 3 this coming June 2021.
After his long hiatus in showbiz, John Lloyd is now back with his film Servando Magdamag by Lav Diaz.
He also expressed his thoughts about his plans of going back to the industry full time.
“Medyo nagba-vary po talaga yun especially kung sino yung magpi-perform.
“Para sa akin, maganda yung opportunity na ‘to para malaman ko kung ano ba yung… kasi kung ano yung mga hindi nag-work before, I would like to correct it now.
“Now that I have a chance, di ba? Parang babalik ka ulit, parang ano ba yung pwede nating i-improve?
“Ano ba yung pwede nating mas pagtuunan ng pansin in terms of management, di ba?
“Kasi, parang napatunayan mo na, na hindi nag-work yung unang approach mo, e. Hindi siya sustainable.
“So yun, kung ano man yung kalalabasan nun, I hope, parang siguro ‘yan yung ibig sabihin na 100 percent.”
