MANILA – Paulo Avelino has denied that he does not make an effort to spend quality time with his son Aki.

In an article by entertainment site Pep, Avelino was quoted as saying he will always find time for his son with actress LJ Reyes no matter how busy his schedule may get.

“Basta para sa anak ko, gagawa ako palagi ng oras. Gagawa at gagawa ako ng oras para sa anak ko,” he said.

However, he admitted that he rarely sees Aki lately. Nonetheless, Avelino said this does not lessen how much he loves his son.

"Basta ako, ito lang ang masasabi ko, mahal na mahal ko ang anak ko. At lagi akong available para sa anak ko," he said.

Meanwhile, Avelino was not able to evade questions about his love life and the non-showbiz girl he was reportedly dating late last year.

"Inaamin ko naman na nag-date kami. Pero, busy pareho," he said.

Asked if their blossoming relationship was affected by intrigues, the actor said: "Well, isa 'yun. Pangalawa, naging busy rin sa ‘A Promise of Forever.’ Tapos, ginagawa ko pa itong ‘I'm Drunk I Love You.’ This year, sisimulan ko na rin ang ‘Goyong.’"

While he misses having a special someone, Avelino said he is not yet ready to be in a relationship because he is really focused with work for now.

“Talagang sa ngayon, sobrang busy. May magsa-suffer lang," he said.
