Kapamilya artist Markus Paterson, on August 2, talked about his sacrifices as a young father.
At the media conference for Maalaala Mo Kaya’s August episodes, Paterson clarified that he made the necessary sacrifices when he became a father to Jude, his child with Kapamilya star Janella Salvador.
“Becoming a father at twenty-two– twenty-three, I guess you could say, I sacrificed all the necessary sacrifices. Lahat ng mga bisyo, lahat ng mga– everything that a young twenty two, twenty three year-olds do.
“You know, we go out, we party. Lahat ng mga ganong sakripisyo na kinailangan talaga. And it wasn’t even a hard thing to do. So yeah, the necessary sacrifices becoming a young father, I embraced it.”
He also stated that it was all worth it, especially when he first saw Jude.
“Worth it, definitely. As soon as I saw him [Jude]–in that delivery room, my life flipped upside down, talaga. No regrets, no regrets.”
Paterson and Salvador welcomed their first child Jude Trevor Paterson on October 20, 2020.
