MANILA – “We just can’t handle it yet.”
These were Jericho Rosales’ words when prodded anew if he and his wife Kim Jones are already preparing to have a baby and start their own family.
Speaking to entertainment site Push, Rosales said they are still preoccupied with their respective careers as of the moment.
“We always talk about it. Lagi kaming tinatanong eh kung magba-baby na kami and alam mo her work is different from my work. Her work kasi requires her to travel. Kung makikita niyo ‘yung Instagram post niya, palagi kung nasaan siya so ganon eh constant travel so we can’t have a baby yet,” he said.
Moreover, the actor said they want to fulfill a lot of things with just the two of them first.
“Kaka one year lang namin last May. Maaga pa. Enjoy muna kaming dalawa. It’s kind of tough sa akin. Kapag may TV series and my family, friends, business, kailangan ko i-juggle maiigi,” he said.
Rosales said he wants to be perfectly ready when their baby comes.
“I want to be a good dad to our future kids so dapat I want to be there for her. Ibig sabihin I want to be a responsible father. It’s a different stage sa buhay ko, but right now we just can’t handle it yet,” he said.
Rosales and Jones have been married for over a year now.
Meanwhile, Rosales said he is happy with the outcome of his series “Bridges of Love,” which is now down to its last few episodes.
“Magaan sa pakiramdam at masaya. All the hard work na binibigyan namin sa 'Bridges of Love,' very successful and very consistent ‘yung response ng tao. It’s time for me to enjoy the last few episodes and then [pagkatapos] enjoy the break,” he said.
