Daddy issues

Our favorites from showbiz have been popping out babies left and right, so it’s no surprise how everyone has their eyes set on the married couples in the industry.

One is Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia who have been married for quite awhile now — April 2018, to be exact. Since then, fans have been waiting for the couple to conceive their first baby.

On Billy’s recent Instagram post of him and Coleen on vacation in Boracay, a netizen commented, “Hi sir @billycrawford. I suggest anak na (lang) po. Maybe one or (twins). Yun na (lang) po kulang. Hopefully, girls para (mag-makeup) vlog sila ni (Ma’am) @coleen. Thanks!” to which the actress responded, “Wala pong “kulang.” Everything in God’s time, not other people’s.” The fan apologized afterward and agreed to what Coleen said.

In an interview from a year ago during the opening of a Hong Kong-based home fragrance brand, the couple shared how they were looking forward to becoming parents in the future.

When asked about his parenting style, the actor said he doesn’t really know what it will be.

Billy Crawford and wife, Coleen Garcia, plans to have a baby in God’s own time.

Hindi namin masasabi (We can’t say) how we will raise our kids and how they will turn out. What we can give them is whatever we lacked sa amin (in us),” the actor stated.

He went on to praise his wife, saying, “She is the strongest woman I’ve ever met. I know for a fact that our kids, no matter what happens, will be protected, will be loved, will be guarded. And her intelligence as well, with life and lahat, lahat ng experiences niya. There’s so much wisdom in such a young person’s heart and pag minahal niya ang isang tao, mahal niya (when she loves someone, she really does).”

Billy also mused how, if they have a daughter, he will only allow her to date when she’s already 25.

Sorry, netizens, but you’ll have to wait a little more for baby Crawford.

New daddy
On the other hand, caffeine-ridden JC Santos shared how his life is going in becoming a new dad while juggling media appearances and the likes.

He and his non-showbiz wife, Shyleena Herrera, welcomed their first baby girl just last month and the actor has been admittedly sleep-deprived ever since — hence the caffeine. And with the additional challenges that come with his line of work — five films for release within the year — it’s surprising how the actor still manages to function properly.

JC Santos talks about juggling his career and family life.

Despite his packed schedule, JC feels even more inspired to do his work.

Ang sarap umuwi ng pagod! Totoo pala yung sinasabi nila na pag makita mo lang yung ngiti ng anak mo, wala na lahat (It’s so nice to go home tired! Now I know it’s true what they say that just seeing your baby smile wipes away all the exhaustion),” the actor stated in an interview during the media conference for Motel Acacia.

As Billy said, JC also doesn’t know what kind of father he will be, but assures he already knows what values he would like to instill in his daughter.

Congratulations and good luck to JC and Shy!
