Patrick Garcia Is 25 & Now Married & A Father Of 3 Kids But Remains Baby Faced Compared To His 'Tabing-Ilog'

PATRICK GARCIA plays the dad of one of the child stars in “Langit Lupa” and he doesn’t mind playing father roles now since he has already three kids in real life. His eldest, Alex Jazz, with Jennylyn Mercado, is now 7 years old, and he has two more babies, Cheska and Pichon, with his wife now, Nikka.

Patrick turned 35 last September but he remains baby-faced compared to his colleagues in ‘Tabing Ilog’, like John Lloyd Cruz and Baron Geisler, who look much more mature than him. How’s his relationship now with Jennylyn?

“We’re okay, may communication kami and I get to visit our son regularly,” he says. “When her mom passed, I went there with my wife to condole. Nakakalungkot kasi Mommy Lydia helped a lot sa pagtingin kay Jazz. I know how much she loves Jazz so it’s a big loss.”

How is it being a father? “Masarap. Enjoy ako. It’s a nice feeling. And being dad helps me para mas magampanan ko nang tama ang role ko in ‘Langit Lupa’ kasi I already know how to deal with kids even off cam.”

“Langit Lupa” is now shown on ABS-CBN Monday to Friday just before “Showtime”.
