Baron Geisler opened up about his biggest regret in life.
In an interview with Toni Gonzaga for her segment "Toni Talks" on her YouTube channel, Baron shared that it has to do with his mother.
Baron relayed that he was with his mother when she passed away.
He shared, "That night I was preparing to go to a five-day retreat. And I was sober for a while. So, I went to her room, nakaputi ako nito, long hair, may bigote, naka floral na shorts. And then when I said, 'Mom, Baron here. Good boy. I'm gonna go to this retreat, I'll see you when I get back."
“Parang sa pelikula, she tried to stand up and say something and sabi ko, ‘what is it?’ I sort of knew na this is it so kumuha ako ng penlight chineck ko 'yung mata ni mommy. And slowly, slowly nagdi-dilate. That's when I knew we lost her. I was there.”
Baron then revealed his biggest regret in life is that his mom did not get to see him as the better man that he is now before she passed away.
The actor was admitted to rehab several times in the past for alcoholism. He also made several headlines in show business before because of the controversies he got involved.
“My dream kasi noong time na 'yun was for my mom to see me clean," Baron said as he turned emotional in the interview.
"But a lot people are saying naman na... ang dami naman na nagsasabi ngayon na, 'She's proud of you now,'” he said.
Baron admitted that there have been times when he imagined that his mother was still alive.
“May times nga na para akong baliw eh. I still say a little shoutout kay mom. I wish you were here. Kasi may baby ako na di niya naabutan, apo niya. Lahat ng mga anak ng kapatid ko naabutan niya,” he said.
Baron also talked about his road to recovery from alcoholism in the interview.
"My recovery is not for Jamie (Evangelista, his wife), not for Tali (his daughter). It is for me because how can I lead a family if I am not ready, if I am not whole so I need to get to that point where I am strong enough not be tempted so easily," he said.
He added, "As we grow older, we evolve and hopefully we evolve for the better. I want to evolve to become a really, really good leader, a respectable man."
