Being a father at a young age is definitely not easy, but Markus Paterson said he has no regrets about being one.
On his Youtube channel, the Rise artist shared some snippets of his daily life taking care of his son Jude while he answered some questions from the fans.
The actor then got candid about his struggles as a young dad and how fatherhood turned his life upside down.
“‘Yung buong buhay ko nagbago. From my decision-making, my priorities in life, how I think, how I approach even the smallest situations, it’s crazy. It’s really crazy," he said.
Markus said that he even reached a point of doubting himself if he could be a good father.
“Mahirap talaga. Marami talagang papasok sa isip mo na ‘Kaya ko ba ‘to? Kakayanin ko ba ‘to? Will I get enough work to financially support a child? There’s a lot of questions and doubts that will pop into your head.”
“Pero the main thing that brought me out of those doubts and those questions is, first of all, Janella (Salvador) and my family back home in the UK,” he said.
Even though he acknowledged the struggles of being a first-time father at 22, Markus said he still doesn't regret what happened.
“But yeah, I’m not going to sugarcoat it. It’s definitely not easy being this young and getting thrown into the world of parenthood. But also, it’s not something that I would ever regret looking back on it. It’s not worthy of the thought of regretting it,” he said.
