‘Ang Hindi Na Trabaho Ng Gobyerno At Responsibilidad Ko’: Bettina Carlos’ Husband On Being A ParentHe says, "Kahit na laganap ang maling ugali ng mga nakikita niya sa labas ng bahay, trabaho ko iprocess at ituro ang tama"
He says stepdaughter Gummy accompanied him to line up at the precinct and vote. “Masaya siya. Di lang kita sa picture dahil medyo bitin tulog niya.”
His Instagram post goes on to talk about what he prays for the Philippine government before sharing three points of what he thinks is his responsibility as a Filipino citizen.
Responsibilidad ng magulang: pagmamahal, parenting, magbayad ng buwis
“Ang hindi na trabaho ng gobyerno, at responsibilidad ko,” he starts off his three points.
First, the Talbot seminary grad student says is loving and respecting his wife. “Kasi kahit pa gaano ako kabadtrip sa traffic o sa gobyerno, trabaho ko mahalin ang asawa ko 24/7.”
Bettina and Mikki were married on December 2, 2020 at Tagaytay Highlands. The couple enjoyed two wedding ceremonies.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Mikki also 'proposed' to Gummy when he asked Bettina to marry him.
“Raising my child the right way,” says Mikki is his second point.
“Kahit na laganap ang maling ugali ng mga nakikita niya sa labas ng bahay, trabaho ko iprocess sa kaniya ang mga nangyayari at ituro sa kaniya na si Jesus ang ating absolute truth and morality at hindi nakabase sa kung ano ang uso at ano na ang tanggap sa panahon ngayon,” he says.
It can be seen on both Bettina and Mikki’s Instagram accounts that Mikki has a great relationship Gummy. He spends time with her and goes on dates with just her, and is deliberate about building their father-daughter relationship.
Parents advises that biological parents would do well to give stepparents and their kids a chance to bond together by having one-on-one time. “This will help them feel more secure about one relationship, amidst changes in their lives.”

Third, and last for now, is to pay his taxes. “Magbayad ng buwis. ‘Pag di ko gawin to, wala akong moral authority and credibility to teach my child to stand up for what’s right even if no one is looking, to do what’s right even if everyone else is doing it.”
Mikki ends his post by sharing that he has more he’d like to share but had to stop there because Bettina wanted to eat breakfast together.
