JC Santos revealed his plans to take a break from showbiz for two months to focus on being a full-time father.
During his “Magandang Buhay” guesting yesterday, January 29, the actor said that he’s excited to meet his daughter with wife Shyleena Herrera. She is expected to give birth this February.
"I will try my best kasi gusto ko ma-experience full-on 'yung pagiging daddy," he said.
"Gusto ko ako 'yung magpapalit ng diaper, gusto ko ako 'yung magpapaligo. Gusto ko nandiyan ako the whole process as much as a possible. Gusto ko ganoon," he added.
Although excited, JC admitted that he was quite anxious when he first found out that he was going to be a father.
"Ang unang nag-flash sa akin [noong nalaman kong buntis ang wife ko] 'yung bank account ko. Una, nasaan na ako sa pag-iipon...ano na 'yung mga susunod na trabaho ko. Biglang nag-flash sa akin lahat in one minute. Tapos, okay, ready ako. Ready ako maging daddy, game na," he enthused.
"Gusto ko rin kasing magka-baby matagal na, ngayon lang natupad. Gustong-gusto ko kasi nag-aalaga. Perfect timing itong lahat ng nangyari na ito," he said.
This January, JC admitted that he married his high school crush last September.
He most recently starred in the Pista Ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2019 entry “Open” alongside Arci Munoz.
