Actor Paulo Avelino got a bit emotional when asked which among the roles that he portrays in real life is the most important to him. Aside from being a Gawad Urian Award-winning actor, he is also a model, a singer and is dubbed the “Prince of Philippine Teleserye,” as noted by Wikipedia.

But in real life, Paulo reveals that he still has several important roles that he need to play. Paulo was in a 4-year relationship with actress LJ Reyes but around 2013, they called it quits. Their son, Aki, was 3 at the time. Paulo has been criticized for rarely spending time with his son. Now, Aki just turned 7 years old and Paulo was again put in hot water after failing to attend his son’s birthday party. In his place celebrating was LJ’s current beau, Paolo Contis, as per a story earlier published on Balita DF.

Paulo has recently confirmed with PEP, that he is now in a relationship with Aussie model Jodie Elizabeth Tarasek.

But the actor held back his tears during an interview with Abunda in Tonight with Boy Abunda.

The host asked him, “The man in the mirror, he’s a father, he’s an actor, he’s a boyfriend. Who is he first?”

Paulo answered that there are just many complications and misunderstandings, “I’ve always wanted to be a father first but maraming komplikasyon, maraming misunderstandings but I’ve always wanted to be a father first.”

He also admits that the trait he wants to change about himself is “inconsistency.”

Paulo also adds that if he has one characteristic he wants to maintain, it would be his passion for what he does and for the people he love.

To watch the rest of the interview, you can view it on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN Youtube channel.

Paulo’s newest series “Promise of Forever” with Ritz Azul have just started airing on ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold after “Pusong Ligaw.” You can watch the full first episode courtesy of ABS-CBN’s Youtube channel.
