After becoming a first-time dad with the birth of his baby daughter Lana Athena last May, JC De Vera said he now plans to celebrate the holidays very differently from previous years. “Yung Christmas talaga for me right now is for the family and not for me talaga. Lahat ng wish ko for this Christmas this year is not for me, puro na sa mommy and sa anak ko na,” he explained.
The One Great Love actor and businessman said he just wants to be able to spend quality time with his loved ones after being busy promoting his Metro Manila Film Festival entry this year. “Alam niyo naman ako very simple lang ako palagi. Ang gusto ko lang during Christmas time is makasama lang talaga yung family ko. So this year, kasama ko sila, tatlo lang kami. Meron kaming exchange gift, meron kaming gift sa isa’t isa tapos we’ll have dinner and go to mass. Tapos aantayin namin yung Pasko together. Okay na ako dun. Hindi naman kami yung talagang big yung celebration,” he shared.
