It’s no secret that Joey Marquez has 16 children from different women from inside and outside of the industry. And while he is still capable of having children, the actor-comedian said the time has come for him to stop. 

 

 

In an interview with entertainment reporter and radio host-turned-YouTube content creator Ogie Diaz, Joey explained the reason behind his decision. 

“Kasi baka mag ten years old siya, otsenta na ako. Hindi na kaya. Desisyon na. Kasi iniisip ko na masyado na akong may edad para magkaanak pa ngayon. Baka hindi ko na abutin ang pagkabinata niya, pagkaladaga niya, mag-asawa na siya. Gusto ko maabot ko ‘yung mga apo ko eh,” he said.

When asked why most of his children stay with him, he said: “Alam naman ng mga nanay nila na maalaga talaga ko sa bata kasi alam naman nila parati na palagi kong sinasabi na nu’ng karelasyon ko sila, ‘’Wag kayong makikipag kompetisya sa anak ko. Matatalo kayo.’”

Joey then shared that each time he got into a relationship in the past, he always made sure to let his partner at the time know that his children always come first no matter what. 

 

 

“Kasi ‘yung mga anak ko dugo ko ‘yan eh. Natatakot ako eh. Kasi hindi sila mabubuhay kung wala kahit papaano ‘yung kalinga ko. Hindi ko siya pwede ipagpalit kahit kanino,” he shared. 

He added: “Mali man o tama, mga anak ko ang pipiliin ko.”

Joey also shared why he believes his children don’t get jealous about each other.

“In fairness, I’m so lucky kasi ang mga anak ko, ang pag-treat nila sa isa’t-isa, hindi half-brother, hindi half-sister. Sa amin, there’s no such thing as half-brother o half-sister. It’s either brother or sister lang. Ang kagandahan, very protective sila sa isa’t-isa,” he stated.

“Walang discrimination na ‘Sa iba ka anak eh’. Walang ganu’n. Magku-close sila lahat. Saka nagku-communicate sila. ‘Yun ang pinakamaganda,” he added.
