In an interview with ABS-CBN News last December 10, Agoncillo admitted that it was Santos who wanted to have another baby.

"When we started hindi namin alam kung ilan ang gusto naming baby. Noong may dalawa na at five-years-old na si Lucho, my wife said she wanted another. Aayaw pa ba ako?" he quipped.

Santos and Agoncillo, who married in 2009, have two other children -adopted daughter Yohan and biological son Lucho.
