After the press conference for the upcoming Viva Films offering On Vodka, Beer, and Regrets, showbiz reporters grilled JC Santos about his love life during the pocket press interview.
However, it was entertainment reporter Allan Diones, who got JC revealing more juicy details through a solo video interview.
Initially, the actor was asked if part of his happiness now, which is pretty evident, was about him being a father.
It could be recalled that an Instagram post by Shyleena Herrera circulated online where she had a photo with Santos and her puppy, greeting everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year while using the hashtags #31weekspregnant and #8monthpregnancy. Additionally, it seems like JC and Shyleena are expecting a baby girl as she used the hashtag #babygirl.
Back at the press interview, JC revealed that Shy will give birth next month, February, and hoping that it will come out on Valentine’s Day.
In the more exclusive part of the video, JC said 2019 was his best year as all his wishes came true, including having his high school crush, who turned him down before, saying yes to him this time around.
“2019 was the best year for me,” he said. “2019, lahat sobrang thankful ako kay Lord na lahat ng dasal ko, lahat ng pangarap ko natupad. That was last year. Natupad siya in a way na pati ’yong karera ko, nangyari, kumbaga. Bukod doon sa career ko, actually, ’yong crush ko noong high school, na na-basted ako 15 years ago, nagkita kami ulit at hindi ko na siya pinakawalaan.”
“Sinabi ko na agad sa parents niya na, siyempre, nag-hang out kami for a few months. Sinabi ko na agad sa parents niya na ‘I want to marry your daughter.’ Sinabi ko na kaagad sa kapatid niya and nalaman na nila and nag-propose ako. We got married and, now, we have a new beautiful place.” JC added, his eyes shining with glee.
JC also went into the details of their marriage, saying they tied the knot back in September 2019.
When asked how they kept it a secret, he had this to say:
“Paano nalihim? Hindi namin nilihim. Wala lang nagtatanong.”
He also added that he did not post anything on social media because he wanted such to just be about work and believing that friends at the wedding did not want to post because they respected his privacy.
He then reiterated his elation of what 2019 gave him, listing the movies and theatre productions he had shot and took part in, including the international film Motel Acacia and the ethno-epic musical Lam-Ang.
With regards to plans for the baby, JC said he does not want to think about it yet, opting to see his little one first before talking about it.
Congratulations, JC! We are so happy that all your wishes came true! Watch the full interview below!
