It looks like everything is going well in Jhong Hilario’s life as a new dad!
On “Magandang Buhay” last Wednesday, April 28, the “It’s Showtime” host shared that, despite the lack of sleep, he’s loving every bit of a having a baby.
“Walang tulog. Puyat lagi, pero masaya. Sobrang nakakatuwa na meron na ‘kong baby,” he said.
Jhong and his partner Maia Azores welcomed their first child Sarina Oceania last March, and because of this, he now feels complete.
He explained, “Kahit papaano naging successful tayo sa pagiging Streetboys, naging successful tayo sa pagiging actor dahil nakakuha tayo ng mga awards, naging regular tayo sa ‘Showtime’ bilang host, ito marami akong napapasang ordinansya sa Makati, pero sabi ko, ang pinaka-magpapakumpleto talaga buhay ko ‘yung maging tatay.”
Hosts Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal Escueta learned that Jhong is a very hands-on dad who likes to take care of Sarina’s needs, while Maia rests.
“Pagpapa-araw. Kailangan kong gumising ng 6:30 ng umaga para mapaarawan si Sarina. Ako nagpapaligo sa kanya,” said Jhong.
The former “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” actor also said that he’s owning the responsibility of making sure that Sarina learns how to dance and earn the title of being the Sample Princess to his Sample King.
He said, “Hindi ako papayag na hindi siya matutong magsayaw. Siguro it’s time na ‘yung talent ko ipasa ko naman sa kanya. Maganda ‘yung sa taong healthy, maraming talent, maraming nagagawa.”
