(PEP.ph ) "I'm the only father that they have, they don't have a choice. But for my kids, I want to be the best and I'm still not, but I want to," John said at the 18th birthday party of daughter Inah held last night, January 23, at the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club in Mandaluyong City. John and Janice have four children, namely, Inah, Moira, Kyla and Yuan. The couple were married in 1992 but separated in 2001, brought about by John's alleged infidelity. In 2004, the court ordered the marriage annulled, legally granting both parties freedom from the bonds of their union.
While most people blame John for the breakdown of the marriage, the actor himself confessed to struggling to come to terms with the separation, especially since his children made no secret of their resentment towards him in the past. "When they were kids talaga, like 12 and 13, nung time na naghiwalay kami, they showed some galit and I understand where they're coming from. Of course, di ba? I mean iiwanan mo 'yong nanay nila, wait, let me rephrase that, naghiwalay kayo, so masakit sa kanila 'yon. But it doesn't end there. They're gonna have their own lives and they will see how life can be really unfair also or how life can be not that easy," John told the entertainment reporters who were present at last night's affair.
