After tying the knot last year, Jericho Rosales has been persistently asked whether or not he is already planning to have a baby with wife Kim Jones. In an interview with the actor during the photo shoot of his new show Bridges of Love, Jericho shared that there is no plan yet since they are both caught up with their respective careers and they still have more things to pursue professionally.
“Wala pa[ng plano] hindi pa, I’m still praying about it kung kailan ang perfect timing kasi gusto ko muna ma-enjoy niya ’yung work niya, I mean ako din gusto ko maging prepared for that. Kasi pagkinasal kayo hindi pa tapos don ‘yun eh, pag-aaralan niyo pa ‘yung isa’t isa ‘di ba? And then kung kailan ‘yung timing,” he said.
Jericho remarked that it is essential that he will get to take care of Kim when the time comes that she gets pregnant. With his busy schedule now that would be impossible so he would rather not have it happen soon. “I want to be there for her kapag nabuntis na siya. I want to be there a few months before siya manganak and a few months after siya manganak so timing is crucial talaga. Gusto ko andon ako eh para sa kanya and we're both not ready pa so we are praying hard about it. Time will come.”
The actor is set to star in the upcoming soap Bridges of Love this March. With the intimate and passionate scenes that his role requires, how is Kim reacting to it? “Well first of all Australian si Kim so medyo open ‘yung kultura nila ‘di ba so hindi masyadong konserbatibo pero may values siyempre si Kim. Walang naging problema sa amin ‘yun ever kasi alam niya na ginagawa ko ‘yung work ko, na may reason. She knows that na hindi ako gagawa ng isang bagay for wrong reasons, that's how much she trusts me and vice versa.”
He further stressed that Kim is very understanding when it comes to his work and he appreciates her for it. “She’s the most supportive, she’s my best friend, she’s my most favorite person in the world and the only issue now of course is she's busy, she’s very busy ‘yun lang pero okay lang ‘yan. Sanay na sanay kami sa isa’t isa, kumbaga para sa akin lang perfect, wala namang perfect pero ‘yung set-up namin, ‘yung pagkakaintindihan namin sa isa’t isa, full support talaga.”
