During Piolo’s guesting to Kapamilya talk show, “Magandang Buhay”, his mother, Amy Pascual admitted she wants her son to finally settle down, as per a story shared by ABS-CBN.
“Kaya ko inirereto ‘yan, maski kanino gusto ko mag-asawa na. [The reason why I push him to anyone because I want him to get married.] I want him to have his own family. Pero sabi nga niya, in time.” [But as what he said, in time], Mrs. Pascual said.
Piolo even shared her mom’s eagerness to the point that wherever they go she would always like to push him to almost everyone they didn’t even know.
“Ewan ko ba dito kay Mommy. Kapag bumibiyahe kami, maski flight attendant kinakausap niya, [sasabihin niya] ‘single ka ba? Ito nga pala ang anak ko, anak lumabas kayo, mag-date kayo.”
[I don’t know with mommy. Whenever we travel, she talks even to a flight attendant and asks, ‘are you still single?’ This is my son, go out with him for a date.’], Piolo responded.
The actor is celebrating his 40th birthday and wants to fulfil his dream to become a pastor but as for now, he will continue embracing his profession as an actor does not hinder him to share his faith depending on God’s calling or purpose in his life.
“Hanggang ngayon ay hinahanap ko pa rin ‘yon, kasi my bottomline, ang goal ko sa buhay ay ma-fulfill ko ang destiny ko, kung ano ang purpose ng Diyos sa akin at kung anuman ang calling niya sa akin.”
[Until now I’m still seeking for it, coz’ my bottomline, my goal in life is to fulfill my destinty, of whatever purpose God has bestowed upon me, and His calling.]
Even ‘yung pagiging artista, [Even as an actor] I just have to embrace it at di mo kailangang maging pastor [and you don’t have to be pastor] to be able to share the words of God. Pero gamitin mo ang influence mo [But you have to use your influence] to do the right thing and let it speak for you,” Piolo added.
Like Mrs. Pascual, he also wants to have another child and finally meet the one he will be with for the rest of his life — in God’s perfect time.
