Comic couple Jason Francisco and Melissa “Melai” Cantiveros will not leave the entertainment industry after getting married and preparing for parenthood.
“Kung bibigyan ako ng pagkakataon, babalik ako ulit siyempre sa showbiz. Pero gusto ko muna alagaan yung baby ko ng mga tatlo o apat na buwan. Gusto ko yung tutok muna ako sa anak ko,” Melai shared with Anthony Taberna in “Tapatan Ni Tunying” airing this Thursday (Dec 19).
Melai and Jason are expecting to welcome their baby in April. Jason, on the other hand, is having second thoughts about having many children contrary to his prior dream of having a big family.
“Noong una gusto ko ng malaking pamilya pero noong makadalo ako ng mga seminar bago ikasal, naintindihan ko na hindi pala basta-basta 'to. Gusto ko talaga madaming anak kaya lang iniisip ko din ang kalagayan ng asawa ko," Jason explained.
With all the challenges that tested their relationship, Jason believes that their bond has become stronger and more emotionally stable, which has made them ready for parenthood.
When asked if Melai will still get married if she did not get pregnant, she gave a resounding yes.
“Hindi na ako nagdalawang-isip kasi nga sabi niya sa’kin gusto na niya lumagay sa tahimik. Gusto na rin niya magkaroon ng pamilya. Sabi ko naman sa sarili ko, ako rin gusto ko nang magkapamilya," Melai said.
The well-loved Melai and Jason’s love team budded during their stay in the “Pinoy Big Brother” (PBB) house. They recently tied the knot in Melai’s hometown General Santos City.
The couple also reminisces how their romantic relationship started and what they went through these past years in the episode.
