Jake Ejercito 5 taon nang walang dyowa; payag makatrabaho sina Andi at Jaclyn
LIMANG taon na palang walang dyowa ang bagong Kapamilya star na si Jake Ejercito.
Yan ang inamin ng aktor sa ginanap na virtual mediacon ng Dreamscape Entertainment para ibandera ang pagbibida niya sa bagong serye ng ABS-CBN, ang “Marry Me, Marry You”.
Paliwanag ni Jake, mas nag-focus daw kasi siya sa kanyang career at pagiging tatay sa anak nila ni Andi Eigenmann na si Ellie nitong mga nagdaang taon.
“I’ve been single for the past five years I think. Because I really chose to focus sa parenting these last few years. Yun ang mahirap ngayon. Walang chance to go out and meet new people.
“As of now, (marriage) doesn’t cross my mind yet. Right now kasi I have Ellie. I ‘m happy and content with the situation now.
“But if you ask me in the future if it’s in the cards for me, of course why not? But right now it’s not in the horizon for me,” diretsong pahayag ng anak ni dating Pangulong Joseph Estrada.
Sabi pa ng aktor, bukod sa pag-aartista ang top priority pa rin niya ngayon ay ang co-parenting duties niya with Andi. Thankful din siya dahil aprub sa anak niyang si Ellie ang kanyang acting career.
“Ellie right now is nine turning 10 in November. She’s no longer a baby, she’s not yet a teenager. She’s slowly starting to have her own person, have her mind.
“Alam na niya yung gusto niya. Hindi na siya yung sunod sunuran na lang. So we’re in a really exciting phase right now yung relationship namin.
“I became a dad at the age of 21 so my life talagang changed 180 degrees and it’s been a fulfilling journey so far.
“Si Ellie she’s a tween now. She’s not a baby anymore so I’m just making the most out of every day when she’s with me. Sinusulit ko lang.
“I don’t think I’ll have problems explaining to her. Right now she’s nine na and sanay na siya with her mom also si Andi who’s in the same industry.
“Yun din nakakatawa kasi when I did that variety show last year and nakita ako ni Ellie sumasayaw and kumakanta, pinagtatawanan niya lang ako,” natatawang chika pa ni Jake.
Payag din daw siya sakaling si Ellie naman ang nagkaroon ng interes sa showbiz, “Si Ellie kasi she’s been exposed to the industry because of Andi and they’ve had a lot of magazine shoots na and stuff like that.
“I’d say she’s really comfortable being in front of the camera. If ever naman she decides to go into showbiz in the future, I won’t say no. Kung anong gusto niyang gawin, I’ll be rooting for her 110%,” dagdag ni Jake.
Okay lang ba sa kanya na makatrabaho niya in the future sa isang acting project si Andi at ang nanay nitong si Jaclyn Jose?
“Yeah why not? If the opportunity arises, pero mukhang heavy drama yun kung Andi kasi the heiress of drama kasi siya before, eh. So, why not? (At tungkol naman kay Jaclyn,) Oo naman. It would be an honor kasi Cannes Best Actress. Of course definitely. Tita J. The one and only,” aniya pa.
Samantala, handang-handa na si Jake sa pagsabak sa lock-in taping para sa kanyang first major acting project na “Marry Me Marry You” anytime now. Makakasama niya rito sina Paulo Avelino, Janine Gutierrez, Sunshine Dizon at marami pang iba.
“Definitely this is my biggest role. Kasi before mga one episode lang, one off shows. Other than that, I did a film which was part of MMFF last year (Coming Home).
“To be honest kasi I was recently part of another variety show and parang getting into that show, I didn’t know why I was there, kung anong gagawin ko du’n.
“But then you know, sabi nga nila pakapalan ng mukha, eh. You just enjoy the ride and with the people around you who are supportive. Enjoy naman.
“Parang prior to that I had no experience in hosting. After that show I realized na puwede pala. So I learned not to close any doors,” pahayag pa ni Jake Ejercito.
