Patrick agreed, and went on sharing his experience every time he's touch his wife's tummy: "Grabe, laging gumagalaw, laging sumisipa round-the-clock. Hindi ’yung may time lang."
The actor also said that Baby Pablo "could be" their last baby as they'd been "praying about ligation" as a family planning method. He admits, though, "It’s kinda hard for me now," as he also thinks that "It’s nice to have a big family."
Turning to his wife, Patrick pointed out, "I think quota ka na. I think four children is enough." He talked a bit about their discussion for Nikka to have a ligation. "We’re still praying about it. Puwedeng oo, puwedeng hindi."CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
He clarified, "Kung hindi, hindi ibig sabihin magbi-baby ulit. Pag yumaman kami nang sobra, may time pa si misis na ma-extend ang family namin, why not? As of now, we’re fine with four children."
He also mentioned their other considerations: "The equal attention we have to give to all of them. Kasi ayaw namin may ma-left out sa attention. Of course, we’re homeschooling. Kaya ba namin kung lahat sila, sabay-sabay nag-aaral, kailangan namin turuan. So we have to take that in consideration. We plan to homeschool as much as we can, hindi lang dahil pandemya."
Nikka added another consideration: "This is my fourth CS. Hindi naman puwedeng every other year, magpapahiwa tayo."
Patrick explained further: "It will also take a toll on her body. May usapan kami na cut-off niya, 35 [years old]. Pag 35, pahinga na siya. I’m leaning towards that. Ayaw ko nang pahirapan ang wife ko, ang katawan niya…
"The blessing that the Lord has given us—four children—is way more. It’s above and beyond. To ask for one more is pushing it, parang gano’n." Patrick has another son, his first-born child, with ex-girlfriend and fellow actor Jennylyn Mercado. The boy, Alex Jazz, is now 12 years old.
