Piolo Pascual maintains that he's not mad at the showbiz news program which aired a short footage of his son Iñigo.
Piolo Pascual has always been protective of his son, which is why he got a little anxious when Showbiz News Ngayon showed a brief footage of I'ntilde;igo with his interview on the set of Noah. Apparently, he wasn'rsquo;t told that the late night showbiz news program would include a video of his son for the news feature. "Good thing he's leaving for the States but it's a private moment. I wish sana hindi umabot sa pagpapalabas. Because it came out at the time when I was landing from the States, mga Monday night. My handler told me nga na ilalabas. I thought ilalabas noong Tuesday. Little did I know, same night pala, so wala na akong nagawa."
Although he'rsquo;s open about sharing some personal stuff about I'ntilde;igo to the local media, Piolo explained that he would rather not have him exposed on TV at an early age. Perhaps it'rsquo;s also his way of ensuring that his kid would focus on his studies first. "Sabi ko kasi there are people who want to interview my son [and of course naiintindihan ko naman yung interest sa kanya ng tao dahil based siya sa States]. But making him appear in front of the camera, it'rsquo;s something that I want to be able to restrict for now because, you know, nag-aaral pa 'yon. I just don't want him exposed," he explained.
Nevertheless, the ever accommodating actor stressed that he doesn'rsquo;t bear any grudge on SNN for airing the said footage. "I'm not saying anything against SNN naman because we're in one network. Sana lang sinabihan ako earlier. Sana hindi gano'rsquo;n'hellip; You know, hindi naman nag-complain 'yung bata sa akin, but it was a private moment. It'rsquo;s something I wanted to share with my son without the cameras."
Fortunately for Piolo, he got the chance to spend quality time with I'ntilde;igo and to talk to him more about the ins and outs of his job as a TV/movie personality during the boy'rsquo;s recent vacation here in the country. "I think the important thing there is more than the communication, there's constant togetherness na napag-uusapan namin din because magkasama kami. So yung two months niya dito, I did everything to make it private. Halos magkasama kami every moment," he said.
