Flower Of Evil actor JC De Vera is in his happiest with his lovely non-showbiz wife Rikkah Cruz and adorable baby daughter Lana Athena.
Going through his Instagram account, it can be seen how the actor feels blessed beyond belief now that he has his own family, as seen through the photos and videos that he shares. While he’s undoubtedly enjoying his most important role to date as a family man, he revealed during his Magandang Buhay guesting in 2020 that even though he’s already fully adjusted to the life he has now, being the haligi ng tahanan entails everyday challenges.
“Fully adjusted na ako. Pero siyempre, ang pagiging isang ama, everyday challenge ‘yan e. Everyday may natututunan kang bago palagi. ‘Di naman ibig sabihin na [porke] sanay ka nang may anak ka, kayang-kaya mo na gawin lahat. Everyday may mga bago, may mga adjustments, mga challenges [sa] relationship namin ng wife ko, tapos ‘yong relationship namin as a whole family. Continuous effort pa rin siya dapat e,” he told the momshie-hosts.
As JC appeared in a slew of teleseryes, online series, and movies in the recent years, this meant only spending a little time with his family. Thus, although the COVID-19 pandemic had many negative implications, he couldn’t overlook the fact that it also allowed him to bond and create more valuable memories with Rikkah and Lana while at the comforts of their home. It was something he wasn’t able to do ever since he and his beautiful wife got married in 2018 through an intimate civil ceremony, and eventually had Lana that same year.
It was only in September 2021 when their dream church wedding, which got postponed for three years due to various circumstances, finally happened. Lana, who’s now four years old, was able to take part in it, too!
Despite his hectic schedule at work and going through a series of lock-in taping, the Flower Of Evil actor makes sure to still spend quality time with his family by going on out-of-town vacations, museum trips, grocery and dine-out dates, or just simply staying at home.
It feels truly so inspiring and happy to see how motivated JC has been to work even harder for his family. With all the blessings that come in JC’s life and with all the success in his career, we only wish all the best for him and for his family.
