Kapamilya heartthrob Paulo Avelino rarely opens up about his life behind the cameras. But in a TWBA appearance, the actor got a little more personal, and quite emotional, as he faced the show’s golden mirror.
The King of Talk started the segment with the question, “The man in the mirror, he’s a father, an actor, a boyfriend. Who is he first?”
Looking at his own reflection, Paulo smiled and took a deep breath. He failed to utter a word for a few seconds, and it turned out that the actor was trying to fight his emotions. “Naiiyak ako, ah,” Paulo said, smiling to hold back the tears.
“Well, I’ve always wanted to be a father first but maraming kumplikasyon, maraming misunderstandings. But, yeah, I always wanted to be a father first,” he expressed.
The next question prompted Paulo to think of one trait he would like to keep. “Siguro it’s my passion – my passion for what I do and at the same time my genuine care and passion for the people I love.” And if there’s something he would like to change in himself, it would be, “inconsistencies.”
Paulo makes an effort to keep his relationship with half-Pinay half-polish model Jodie Tarasek low-key. Still facing the mirror, he said he doesn’t see himself getting married anytime soon. “But if you decide to get married, is Jodie the one,” asked veteran host Boy Abunda.
Paulo was out of words. After much thinking and struggling to search for the perfect words to say, he settled for, “She could be.”
