In an exclusive interview, de Vera said he is delighted to have welcomed his now two-month old daughter.

“Mas naging responsible ako in all aspects of life. Mas naging compassionate ako kasi meron akong daughter na,” he told ABS-CBN News as he shared how fatherhood has changed him.

The actor said he has also become more careful in everything that he does.

“Hindi lang puro trabaho na 'yung ginagawa ko. I now have my small family na kailangan kong buhayin. So ngayon mas naging dedicated talaga ako. Mas naging more energetic din dahil sa daughter ko,” he said.

“Lahat ng ginagawa ko is for them na, not anymore for me lang,” he added.
