“Hindi po kasi ako pinababayaan ng GMA,” bungad ni Dion after ng media conference ng bago niyang serye, ang Hiram Na Anak. “Tulad po ngayon, hindi ko in-expect na magkakaroon agad ako ng bagong show, dahil last November 2018 lamang natapos ang ‘Victor Magtanggol.’ Kaya labis-labis po ang pasasalamat ko. Reunited ako kay Yasmien, na kasama ko sa ‘StarStruck’ noon, na ang last serye na ginawa namin ay ‘Saan Darating Ang Umaga’ ten years ago.”
The 32-year-old Kapuso actor shared that he’s living with his girlfriend and his one year seven month old daughter, Dyllane Jailee (DJ). He has been separated from his girlfriend for eight years and when they had a chance to see each other on Instagram, their relationship bloomed again until they had a daughter.
He shared that his girlfriend is a retired cabin crew of Etihad, who’s now focusing on her own business. On the question about their plans of getting married: “Nag-iipon pa po kami, retired na siya sa Etihad at mayroon siyang business at ako naman dito sa showbiz, gusto ko rin po munang makapagpatayo ng bahay para sa family ko sa Marikina, sa nanay ko, since nasa Bacoor, Cavite naman kami ng mag-ina ko. Kaya wala pa po muna kaming balak sundan si DJ, ipon muna kami. Sa ngayon po kasi ini-enjoy ko iyong pag-uwi ko from work na dadatnan ko si DJ na at her age, makikita mo nang lalaki siyang matalino. Masayahin siya kaya alis ang pagod mula sa trabaho kapag nakita ko na siya,” said Ignacio.
