Dominic Ochoa is excited about becoming a father


052911-dom_main.jpgIn an interview following the Kapamilya Interactive Chat with the cast of 100 Days to Heaven, Dominic Ochoa shared with Push.com.ph that he is about to become a father soon. His wife, makeup artist Denise Go, is now six months pregnant with a baby boy, their first child. The two were married in 2008. “Lahat naman yata ng father gusto magkaroon ng baby boy. Pero actually basta healthy ‘yung baby, kahit boy o girl it doesn’t matter. We will name him Jose Alessandro. Jose is my name while Alessandro means something like ‘defender.’”

Though he is busy taping 100 Days, the 36-year old actor still manages to accompany his wife to the doctor for her regular checkups. “Nabibigyan pa naman ng oras. One time ko lang siya hindi nasamahan sa doctor because I had taping. But everything okay naman. She and the baby are in perfect health. I’m having a baby boy so I’m very excited.” He and his wife couldn’t wait to become parents that’s why as early as now they are already preparing the nursery room in their house and are planning to go shopping for some more stuff for the baby.

But while waiting for his wife’s due date, Dominic said he enjoys playing around on the set of 100 Days with child star Xyriel Manabat. He revealed that he would often ask Xyriel’s mother to allow her to stay at their home. “Xyriel is fantastic. I love that kid. Sabik na sabik na talaga ako sa bata, to the point na I’m borrowing Xyriel to sleep overnight sa bahay namin. ‘Yung mom ni Xyriel pumayag pero dapat daw package sila, kasama sila. Sabi ko naman walang problema kasi may extra room naman sa house namin.”

Dominic is also still in touch with child actor Zaijian Jaranilla with whom he got close to while doing the May Bukas Pa. How would he compare Zaijian and Xyriel as children? “Kay Zaijian kasi since lalaki ang biruan ninyo ‘yung panlalaki. Sweet si Zaijian. Bumisita ‘yan one time sa amin sa 100 Days and he brought us food. Si Xyriel she’s a very sweet girl. Mamahalin mo talaga ‘yan. Nung nanood ako ng Agua Bendita she didn’t catch my attention, but when I got to meet her dun ko siya nagustuhan talaga.”
