Janella Salvador and Markus Paterson are not rushing to get married.
After revealing via a YouTube vlog that they are now parents to a baby boy named Jude, the couple said that it is not something that they want to rush.
“Wala pa, hindi pa kami nagmamadali about that. For now, ‘yung focus namin is to raise Jude muna," Janella said in an interview with MJ Felipe of ABS-CBN News.
Janella expressed her appreciation for Markus who has been with her every step of the way during pregnancy.
“Markus has been really, really helpful as a father and as a partner. Emotionally, he was there to support me when I would have meltdowns. It’s really not easy," Janella relayed.
The actress added, “He would be my arms and legs, lalo na during my last few stages of pregnancy. Hindi ako makatayo, hirap na hirap na ako maglakad. Wala siyang reklamo. He would do everything for me. I couldn’t ask for more.”
Janella gave birth to Jude in October last year as revealed in her vlog.
The Kapamilya star also shared what they chose to keep her pregnancy private.
“I wasn’t hiding it for selfish reasons. I wanted to hide it because I wanted to cherish the moment in my life, na first time ko maging mom. Iyong wala munang ingay, ‘yung may sarili muna akong moment to enjoy it," Janella said.
