After his partner Shara Chavez gave birth to their first-born Akeya early this year, singer Jovit Balpino shared the joy of being a father.
“Ang hirap pa lang maging isang ama pero ang sarap sa pakiramdam kasi ‘pag nakikita mo ‘yung anak mo, tanggal pagod,” he said.
Talking about how hands-on he is with the baby, Jovit shared how he easily gets affected by how the baby feels.
“’Pag inaalagaan ko siya, ‘pag umiiyak, parang nasasaktan ako kasi siyempre parang nanalamin ako, eh, kasi raw kamukhang-kamukha ko ‘yung baby. So, ‘pag umiiyak siya, parang naluluha rin ako, nalulungkot din ako, hindi ko alam ‘yung gagawin ko so kami naman, partner, napapatahan naman namin. Pero okay naman ako. Sobrang saya ko,” he cheerfully shared, referring to his girlfriend Shara.
According to Jovit, before he sleeps, he would reflect on how he is now a father. “Hindi ko na magagawa ‘yung mga ginagawa ng mga binata, ‘yung mga walang asawa. Ngayon, focus ako sa baby ko.”
He said that he is eager to see her grow up, “‘Pag nananaginip ako tapos nagigising ako, nakikita ko ‘yung anak ko, sinasabi ko, ‘Kailan ka kaya lalaki?’”
For Christmas, he said that he will not be working as he wants to spend time with his baby, being it is her first Christmas.
