Dennis Padilla’s advice to Joshua Garcia: “Huwag mo lang sasaktan o lolokohin yung anak ko”

On Tonight with Boy Abunda, well-loved comedian and now director of the upcoming film The Barker, Dennis Padilla, fondly recalled the first time he met his daughter Julia’s rumored boyfriend, Joshua Garcia.

Noong Father’s Day, sabi ko kay Julia, ‘Julia, pwede ka ba mamaya?’ Sabi niya, ‘Sige, dinner tayo papa’ Pagparada niya, nakita ko, may kasama ito at yun na nga bumaba si Joshua. So sabi ko, ‘Ah’ ipapakilala sa akin.”

He added,”Kwento kwento muna, tapos sabi ko kay Julia, ‘Nanliligaw ba sa iyo to?’Tapos sabi ni Julia, ‘Eh, tanong mo sa kanya.’ Tapos noong nag-cr si Julia, sabi ko, ‘Nililigawan mo ba anak ko?’ Sabi niya, ‘Tanungin niyo na lang po si Julia.”


The actor-director also shared what he told the youngster, “Wala akong problema sa 'yo, kahit ngayon lang kita nakilala, pinagtanong-tanong na kita, and you’re a very good man ‘huwag mo lang sasaktan o lolokohin yung anak ko.”

One time, Joshua even sent Dennis a bottle of liquor, to which the latter exclaimed, “Marunong din! Nagresearch!”

Although, on whether or not JoshLia is officially a couple, Dennis clarified, “Noong una kasi, ino-observe ko yung mga Instagram posts nila, tapos minsan nakita ko sila sa airport, magka-holding hands sila papasok ng airport. Sabi ko, syota na yata nito ang anak ko! Ganoon yung basa ko.

Looking back, Dennis shared, ”I was a good provider, pero dumating sa point ng buhay ko na minsan wala kang trabaho. There was one time talaga noong hindi ako makapag-provide ng maayos kina Julia hanggang kina Leon. Kung ano man yung pagkukulang ko sa kanila, hiningi ko na ng tawad sa kanila.”

The first-time director also hopes for a stronger relationship with his children. “For many, many years, ako yung laging nagre-reach out sa mga anak ko. Sana dumating yung mga taon or yung mga time na sila naman yung mag-reach out sa akin. Pagka ikaw lang ng ikaw yung nagre-reach out, dumarating yung time na napapagod ka pala.”

He added, “Ayaw ko dumating yung time na pagka-gusto niyo na akong ayain, hindi niyo na ako maya-yaya dahil nakahiga na lang ako sa kama or nasa kabaong na ako. Ayaw ko ng ganoon. Malungkot yun.”
