After getting married in October last year after a five-month whirlwind romance, Matt Evans said he is excited to become a daddy again soon to his first child with Katrina Farinas. “Yes, anytime actually pero ang due date niya talaga is July 14. Sobrang excited ako sabi ko nga sa kanya gusto ko ulit ipa-ultrasound kasi gusto ko makita yung baby. I’m expecting a girl again. Kahit ano basta healthy kasi siyempre kung lalake tapos hindi naman healthy siyempre mahirap naman yun,” he said.
Matt also has a child with former live-in partner Johnelline Hickins. When asked if he plans to have more children with Katrina, he admitted he is open to the idea, “Marami pa namang pagkakataon,” he said during the Pure Love presscon held last June 26 inside the ABS-CBN compound.
Aside from adjusting to married life, Matt said he is also happy to step into the role of stepfather to Katrina's seven-year-old son. “Sobrang mabuti. Wala akong ka-proble-problema, sobrang sweet nung anak ko na panganay si Hayden. Married life is very fine naman and sobrang happy and contented ako sa buhay ko. Sa bahay mabuti, kumbaga ako barkada ko pamilya ko na eh. Siyempre buhay may asawa na so parang kumbaga umiikot na ang mundo ko sa pamilya ko at trabaho. Ako bahay, trabaho, ganun na lang. Kasi wala ka rin naman iba pang gagawin eh, kumbaga lahat naman napagsawaan ko na lahat ng dating ginagawa ko tapos in-enjoy ko rin naman yung pagka-binata ko. Siguro magkakaroon ka lang ng hesitation sa pag-aasawa kung hindi mo pa na-enjoy yung pagka-binata mo. Sawang sawa na ko sa pagkabinata (laughs) kaya nag-settle down na ako,” he shared.
The 25-year-old Pure Love actor revealed he now also gets to visit his first child after settling things with his former partner. “Yes nadadalaw ko naman and we’re good, settled na naman kami nung isa. Wala ng naging hassle kahit sa misis ko so everything is falling into place naman,” he said.
Matt said he believes he has not changed very much even though he wants to be the best husband and father that he can be to his growing family. “Yung binago ko lang is yung status lang and less barkada siyempre, kailangan mo yun. Kumbaga yung asawa ko pinapayagan naman ako, actually kasama pa nga siya nung hindi pa siya buntis eh. So wala naman kaming hindi pinagkakasunduan,” he admitted.
As part of the local adaptation of the hit Koreanovela Pure Love, Matt plays the role of The Scheduler. Other cast members include Alex Gonzaga, Yen Santos, Arjo Atayde, Joseph Marco, Arron Villaflor, Yam Concepcion, and Anna Luna. Matt said he is very excited for the show's premiere airing date on July 6. “Siyempre masayang masaya kasi una sa lahat hindi naman sa matagal ko ng hinihintay pero siyempre nakaka-miss din gumawa ng napaka-big break na binibigay nila sa amin,” he said.
