While his colleagues are immersed in their respective showbiz careers, Jon Lucas has his plate full as a first-time father and husband. And just like any man who wants to make it right for his own family, so much has changed about the young actor, starting from his priorities in life.
With the birth of his bundle of joy, Bryce Christian, who is now eight months old, the Hashtags member shared to Push that he let go of some of his old ways.
“Unang-una, siyempre nawala na yung barkada. Hindi naman nawala totally, nandiyan pa rin naman yung barkada, pero more on priority mo na yung family. Hindi na puwedeng abutin ng late kasi kahit ikaw mismo, gusto mo ng umuwi nang maaga, kasi nga gusto mo ng makita yung baby mo, mayakap yung asawa mo.”
Rumors of Jon impregnating his non-showbiz girlfriend first sparked early this year when he and Bugoy Carino were suspended from “It’s Showtime”. Out of their co-members, it was Jameson Blake who revealed that the two were on indefinite suspension, though he refused to divulge why.
Thankfully, Jon knows better than to stay in the dark, hence his sudden decision to give the truth to his fans. Sure, he might have to sacrifice much – including his reputation – but his small family was the best thing that happened to him thus far.
Now, the 22-year-old is more determined than ever to give it all in the name of his love for his wife and son.
“Ngayon, mas alam ko sa sarili ko na mas kailangan kong galingan kasi may kailangan akong buhayin, may kailangan akong patunayan. Ayoko namang lumaki siya na hindi maginhawa yung buhay. Siyempre ako, pangarap ko na maging maginhawa yung pamumuhay niya, so lahat ng gagawin ko ngayon kailangan kong ibigay lahat yung best ko.”
