According to Chito, he shared that he would like to name their soon-to-be-born child, Alfonso III as he is Alfonso, Jr. “As of now, Alfonso. I want to have a second name,” he said during the press conference for Parokya ni Edgar’s new album Pogi Years Old on Wednesday, October 19.
When asked how Neri is dealing with her pregnancy, Chito said, “Very difficult talaga. Sobrang hirap. Kasi nag-miscarriage siya ‘nung first baby namin so ‘yung second, ingat na ingat talaga siya. Pero, wala naman naging complications. It’s just that, gano’n pala ‘yun, hirap na hirap talaga siya. Hindi siya morning sickness, all day sickness. Pero ‘yun lang, we just pray na mahandle niya ‘yung…”
When asked if this made him love Neri more, Chito answered, “Regardless naman kung may baby o hindi. But I needed to be more patient kasi sanay ako siya ‘yung nag-aalaga sa akin, eh. Pag gising ko, nakaready na ‘yun breakfast ko, eh. Ngayon, kailangan gusto ko, ako naman mag-aalaga sa kanya.”
As for his preparations to become a father, Chito said, “I think I’m really prepared na rin naman kasi marami naman akong kids na naalagaan na naman before, ‘yung mga pamangkin ko kasi ako ‘yung bunso so ako lagi ‘yung napag-uutusan. Tapos even the kids of sila Jay ng Kamikazee, sila Sarah. We were really close ‘nung time na ‘yun, we still are pero we lived in the same neighborhood so sanay naman talaga ako mag-alaga ng kids.”
