MANILA – John Prats is about to be a father of three and the actor can’t find the right words to describe how this makes him feel.
Prats, however, told Kean Cipriano and Matteo Guidicelli during the third broadcast of “One Voice Pilipinas” on Saturday that he is beyond excited to welcome his third baby with Isabel Oli.
“Having two, riot na. Hindi ko nga ma-imagine 'yung tatlo, but I am really excited,” he said.
“But hopefully, si Liv din nagwo-worry ngayon na sana matapos na ['yung pandemic] bago siya manganak. 'Yun ang laging prayers namin, na sana maging maayos na 'yung buong mundo. Sana bumalik na sa normal,” he added.
Prats and Oli revealed they are expecting their third child last week. Oli is set to give birth in July.
Meanwhile, Prats said he and Oli are spending as much time with their kids since the enhanced community quarantine has been put in place.
“Nandito lang kami sa bahay. At least we get to bond with our family. Sabi ko nga, na-miss ko 'yung first walk ni Feather pero nasaksihan ko naman kanina 'yung first swim niya,” he said of his daughter who is turning four.
While we are all living in scary times, Prats said he learned to see the silver lining in it.
“Siyempre sobrang lungkot ng nangyayari sa atin ngayon. Sobrang hindi namin ma-imagine ni Liv na nangyayari ito sa panahon natin. Para siyang pelikula. Napapanood ko lang ito eh. So sabi ko, try nga natin hanapin kung ano ba ang positive na nangyayari,” he said.
“Every night, after we eat dinner with the whole family, hindi namin nagagawa dati pero now, after dinner, talagang the whole family will just pray together,” he added.
The actor said he also gets to bond with his siblings which doesn’t normally happen on regular days because of work.
