Hurrah to every dad and hubby!

/ 12:09 AM June 03, 2014

Since Father’s Day is fast approaching (June 15), I asked some celebrity Papas what they would not have known if they did not become dads.

I’ve been a single mom for so long now. Without a partner, I often wonder if I am doing too much or too little for my two kids. There are some things only a father can do.


Still, being a solo parent I learned what it was like to stay awake (or half-awake)  at night (or till the wee hours of the morning) until I heard the footsteps of my children, which reassured me they were home safe and sound.

My dad, who used to call me “Princess,” is gone but I know that he’s watching over me and he will lead me to my Prince.


Hurrah to all fathers and father figures! Behind every happy mother and contented child is an overworked hubby/daddy.

JULIANA taught dad Richard “what’s it like to truly love a person other than my wife.”

Richard Gomez

I’ve learned what it is like to truly love a person other than my wife with all my heart.

Ryan Cayabyab

A father’s love is unconditional. It must be dispensed liberally, without confusing the child regarding the importance of discipline.

Mark Herras

Since I joined show biz, I’ve been blessed with many opportunities. But when I became a father to Ada Sophie Nicolette six months ago, that was when I realized that a baby was truly God’s greatest blessing.


Benjie Paras

Before, I always thought that children should always listen to their parents. Now that I’m a dad, I’ve realized that, most of the time, I should listen to them.

Chad Borja

Fatherhood has made me master the art of understanding and patience and, most of all, unconditional love that only a parent can give.

Kim Atienza

I could never relate to the saying, “tanggal lahat ng pagod mo pag-uwi mo sa mga anak mo” before  I became a dad to my three beautiful kids. Every single working day, I look forward  to dinner when I would see their smiling faces at home. Tanggal talaga lahat ng stress! I thank God for making me a father to Jose, Eliana and Emman.

ADA SOPHIE Nicolette is God’s greatest blessing, says dad Mark Herras.

Marco Alcaraz

Being a dad has made me change my outlook in life and it has taught me how to be responsible.

Bayani Agbayani

When I became a dad, I found out  that children’s noise could be music to my ears no matter how rowdy they got.

Jojo Alejar

I was able to imagine the joy of driving the best car, the bliss of having my own place with a great view, the thrill of having money to spend, but never did I imagine the happiness of becoming a dad. It’s the little things about my little ones that make the biggest difference in my life.


An early Happy Father’s Day to an Ulirang Ama who’s special to me, XTN C. ’Pa-McDo ka naman!
