It’s been three years since they started their production company OC Records and celebrity couple Kean Cipriano and Chynna Ortaleza revealed how it really feels to work with your spouse daily.
“It’s f**ked up. Really honestly, I don’t know what the f**k happens in the process. It’s so overwhelming at times because being a mom is demanding. But then of course you have to balance things like you have an artist husband, you’re a muse to him. And after that you’re working in a label with so many artists with conflicting egos and everything. So, what I do is I just soldier on. That’s what I do. I voice out all energies, good and bad. My team knows this. I’m transparent with them if I’m pissed, I’ll cry it out. If I’m happy I’m super happy. That’s just how I deal with it to be able to get that balance that we need for the artists and also working as a team. And so far, we haven’t filed for divorce or annulment so I guess that’s a good thing (laughs),” she shared during the OC Records virtual presscon.
Kean admitted the challenge of having to work with someone you live with at home. “Kasi as much as gusto mo iwan yung trabaho, madadala at madadala mo siya sa bahay. Lalo na ngayon. Parang lagi na kaming nasa bahay. I think yun yung isa sa mga challenging part, kasi kahit gusto lang namin mag-relax or gusto namin manuod ng TV, parang napaghahalo talaga. I’m just really happy na meron akong asawa na naiintindihan, kumbaga pareho kaming nasa creative field so kumbaga I think alam naman namin yung pinasok namin. Ako kasi this is what I want to do for the rest of my life, entertainment music. So itong recording label naman na ito, alam ko na eventually ma-pa-pass on din naman sa mga anak namin eh. So that’s why we’re grinding and working hard now kumbaga para ma-mount namin itong company na ito na kumbaga with integrity at maayos yung projection namin sa mundo,” he explained.
Even with Valentine’s day just two weeks away, Kean said he and his wife already know what their date will be like. “As much as we what to go out, we can’t (laughs). Simple lang naman kasi kami ni Chynna ever since. I mean c’mon yung wedding namin 70 people lang yung nandun. Very intimate lang. Kumbaga hindi kami masyadong engrande, basta magkasama kami. Bigyan ko ng masahe, kumain lang kami ng maayos, okay na kami. Parang ganun. Kung ako tatanungin ang gusto ko lang gawin sa Valentine’s mag-cuddle lang kami. Pero yung mga bata andiyan. And we don’t want baby number three (laughs),” he admitted.
Chynna fully agreed with plans to focus on their two kids Stellar and Salem this year. “It’s not yet possible at the moment. We don’t want baby number three okay no. Safe ako. Marked safe ako ng 2020 (laughs). Sa Valentine’s masahe lang masaya na ako. Yung hashtag namin nung nagpakasal kami pretty much that’s how we are as a couple. We say, ‘Til death we do art.’ So, we carry that sa lahat ng ginagawa namin pati sa record label. So, we’re just going to keep on doing this until ma-permit kami,” she added.
