"First Love" star Aga Muhlach proved last night, October 17, in "Tonight with Boy Abunda" that he's one cool dad to his daughter Atasha.
When asked a hypothetical question about Atasha having a boyfriend, the award-winning actor said, "I'm okay. Na-practice ko na 'yan. Life has a way of teaching you all these things. Life has a way to make you understand. One day you will realize that our children are not ours really. Tagabantay lang talaga tayo sa kanila. At some point may kukuha talaga sa kanila, parang nung kinuha ko ang asawa ko sa nanay niya."
But like most fathers, Aga denied “stalking” his daughter's Instagram, and revealed that he was taken aback by Atasha already entertaining male visitors at home.
"Years ago, kapag nandyan 'yan sasabihin ko sa asawa ko, 'B, tingnan mo nga kung bakit nandiyan sa baba 'yan'. Tapos bababa talaga ako. Uupo ako sa tabi nila. Makikipagkwentuhan ako. They're friends,” he recalled with a laugh.
Coming from his own experiences, Aga also sent a warning to the man who will soon date his daughter.
"Sasabihin ko sa kanya, 'Brother, huwag ako. Alam ko 'yan. Papunta ka pa lang nakailang balik na ako diyan," he joked.
Aga also promised to listen and stay with Atasha if she ever gets her heart broken.
And when asked the best advice that he wanted their kids to keep in mind, the actor answered, "I've told my kids, '’Wag kayong tumingin sa mayaman at mahirap.' Basta maganda ang hangarin at pakitungo, parang ako nung dati, may mga niligawan din ako na mga pamilya na mababa ang tingin sa akin. Ang sakit."
In the end, Aga revealed that he's willing to be generous and relax most especially if the guy will show them kindness.
Join Aga and Bea Alonzo in their first movie together, "First Love" directed by Paul Soriano, and produced by TEN17P together with Star Cinema and Viva Films.
It is now open in 225 cinemas nationwide.
