Jon Lucas Confesses That He's Now Married And A Dad At 22, Happy To Play First Lead Role In The Movie 'Dito Lang Ako'

JON LUCAS gets his first lead role in a romantic movie in “Dito Lang Ako”, where he’s paired with co-Star Magic talent, Michelle Vito. “Friends na kami ni Michelle even before the movie kasi we both belong to Star Magic Batch 2013,” he says. “I play Delfin and she plays Nelia and our love story is set in the 1970s. Kaso, maraming nangyari, hindi kami nagkatuluyan, but after 40 years, we meet again, with Delfin played by Freddie Webb and Nelia, by Boots Anson Roa. Maganda yung love story told in the movie.”

Their love team is being promoted as JonChelle, but during the movie’s presscon, Jon admitted that he’s now married and has a child. It will be recalled that early this year, it was reported that a member of the Showtime group called Hashtags has made someone pregnant and was told to leave the show. It turns out to be Jon. He confessed that he has since already officially married his non-showbiz girlfriend and their baby boy is named Bryce Christian.

“It’s never my intention to deny or keep it a secret,” he says. “I was just looking for the right timing. At ito na nga yun, presscon ng ‘Dito Lang Ako’, and you’re asking me, so inaamin ko nang I’m married and has a kid.”

He’s only 22 years old and he admits he got worried about how it would affect his career. “Pero siempre, excited din ako, lalo na when I learned that boy ang magiging baby namin. So hinanda ko na lang yung sarili ko. Naintindihan naman ako ng Star Magic.”

But is he still returning to “Showtime”? “Sana. But it all depends on their decision kung makakabalik ako. Whatever their decision will be, I will accept it kasi malaki ang pasasalamat ko sa ‘Showtime’ dahil nakapagtapos ng pag-aaral ang kapatid ko while I was in the show. Nagbago na talaga ang life ko kasi, wala na akong labas-labas sa gabi kasama ang barkada. Ngayong padre de pamilya na ako, nabago na ang priorities ko at sana, mabigyan pa ako ng more projects. Nagpapasalamat talaga ako sa Blade Productions for giving me this lead role in ‘Dito Lang Ako’. Panoorin po nyo when it opens in theaters on August 8.”
