Vice Ganda admits he wants to have kids: ‘Hindi ko lang alam kung kailan ko siya magagawa’
Vice Ganda opened up about his dream of having kids and confessed that he considers his age a huge factor in planning for such.
The 46-year-old comedian spoke about this after he was asked by Diamond Star Maricel Soriano if he has plans on having kids, as seen in a vlog on the latter’s YouTube channel yesterday, Sept. 18. Vice Ganda and Soriano had a question-and-answer session where the “It’s Showtime” host randomly picked from the questions prepared by Soriano beforehand.
“Kung gusto kong magkaanak? Yes, gusto kong magkaanak,” he stated. “Hindi ko lang alam kung kailan ko siya magagawa.”
([If the question is] if I want to have kids? Yes, I want to. I just do not know when I will be able [to have one].)
“Actually nagko-compute din ako. ‘Maaalagaan ko pa ba ito ‘pag ganitong edad? Pag nag-debut siya, ilang taon ako no’n? Makaka-attend pa ba ako ng big party niya? Maisasayaw ko pa ba siya?’ — iniisip ko rin ‘yung mga gano’n,” he admitted.
(Actually I have also been computing [the years]. “Would I still be able to take care of the child at a certain age? How old would I be when the child marks their debut? Would I be able to attend the child’s big party? Would I still be able to dance with my child? — I also think about those things.)
During the conversation, Vice Ganda also talked about his partner Ion Perez and how their Las Vegas wedding commitment ceremony last year was a moment the comedian “had long waited for.”
“Nung na-meet ko si Ion (When I met Ion), I realized that I was so blessed because I finally found that one person that I both want and need. I want him to be in my life, and I need him to be in my life,” he said.
Meanwhile, Vice Ganda earlier shut down rumors that he and Perez have broken up, stating that they just recently spent time apart only to maintain balance in their relationship. JB
