Is Jhong Hilario ready to settle down now?


101415-JHONG_main.jpgIt's Showtime host Jhong Hilario said that he doesn't see himself tying the knot with his non-showbiz girlfriend for now since he wants her to enjoy her career at the moment. "Settle down... hindi na muna kasi gusto ko lang mag-enjoy 'yung girlfriend ko sa trabaho niya dahil nagi-enjoy pa siya sa trabaho niya." He added that marriage is something that must be planned well.   "And don sa pakasal madali lang naman 'yun eh, kailangan mo lang i-arrange, 'yun makakasal ka na, pero siyempre dapat pinaplano," he said.

While he does not have a family of his own presently, Jhong somehow experiences being a father while working with the five child stars Louise Abuel, Raikko Mateo, John Michael, Micko Laurente, and Karla Cruz of his new serye Walang Iwanan. "Ako naman nong nagsisimula kami don ko naa-adapt na isa na akong magulang kasi siyempre sa umpisa makukulit talaga tong mga 'to eh pero ikaw ready ka ng umacting siyempre makikita mo sila naglalaro pa kaya on set minsan parang magiging tatay ka. Sinasabihan mo sila 'Tama na, seryoso na tayo, pagod na ako.' So don ko naa-adapt ko talagang mga anak ko na ang mga 'to. Nakikinig naman sila," he shared.

Beside his new soap opera, Jhong is opening a new chapter in his life as he revealed that he will be running as a councilor in his barangay in Makati. He stressed though that it is not definite yet if he will quit showbiz if he wins in the elections. "Siguro pag hindi ko na kayang pagsabayin bakit pipilitin mo? Kaysa masira ka bakit mo pipilitin? Kung hindi mo kaya sa isang bagay bakit mo ipipilit di ba? Hanggang ngayon kung kaya mong pagsabayin na nakakapag-entertain ka at nakakapagsilbi ka sa tao why not? Bakit ka hihinto sa show business? Dahil una career ko 'to eh, mahirap din iwan, dito rin ako nakilala and ito rin 'yung nagpakain sa akin eh. Ito din ang nagdamit sa akin, ang show business. Kaya ang hirap iwan pero siyempre sabi nga eh meron tayong destiny kung saan talaga tayo pupunta," he stated.
