Actor Marvin Agustin talked about his children and plans on getting married on Tapatan ni Tunying.
A doting father to his 9-year-old twin boys, Marvin said that they are the only ones who can make him move an important meeting or appointment to another schedule.
He also said that since he was part of the Philippine Archery team, the twins have taken a liking to the sport and he takes them to his archery trainings. “Nakikita nila yung disiplina ko, nakikita nila yung pagmamahal ko sa sport,” he said.
He further added that he will encourage them if ever they wanted to enter show business. However, he said that it is every parents dream to see their children to finish their studies so he wants the twins to focus on that.
As a chef, Marvin referred to his children as his no. 1 customers.
With his return to his mother network, he shared that he was quite happy with the project he was offered. What made Flordeliza his dream project was to be able to work once again with Jolina Magdangal. “Feeling ko niloloko ako nung mga kasama ko,” he related when he was told during a meeting that his former ka-love team is also making a comeback. “How can you say no to a great project?” he added.
Although busy with his new TV show, Marvin said that his priority still is his restaurant businesses. The actor currently owns 50 restaurants and he admitted he has had his share of ups and downs in the business. “Full-time ko tong ginagawa. May pananagutan ako sa business partners ko, mga empleyadong sinama namin sa negosyo.”
Marvin also shared he had an early interest in sales since his mother was a business woman herself. “Kahit rice cooker namin kaya niya ibenta,” he laughingly remembered. Marvin recalled too that he worked as a waited, video shop attendant, even a mascot, just to help his family make ends meet. He emphasized though that he is forever grateful to show business as this is where he got his capital for his first business venture.
Currently single and available, Marvin described the woman he would want to be with in the future. “Magaling ako mag-alaga. Masarap din yun inaalagaan ka. Of course definitely (someone) who would love my kids like I love my kids, yun yung no.1 na gusto kong meron.”
When asked when he is getting married, he replied, “Wala ako sa number. If that moment na dumating sa sarili ko, na tingin ko I could give everything already, (then that’s it), it’s just right now hati-hati. Ang dami ko pang gusting gawin sa maraming parte ng buhay ko.”
