                            CHRISTIAN BAUTISTA with wife KAT RAMNANI

CHRISTIAN BAUTISTA didn’t win in the “Star in a Million” talent search in 2003, but he’s now remains more visible than the top three winners Erik Santos, Sheryn Regis and Marinel Santos. 

He’s turning 40 on October 19 and the younger stars in his regular shows on GMA-7, “All Out Sundays”, as well as the discoveries in 3 seasons of “The Clash”, where he’s a judge, now consider him their kuya, their mentor. 

In the “AOS” presscon hosted by GMA, young actor Ruru Madrid praised Christian for being so generous in sharing with them and his younger colleagues some valuable words of wisdom that their Kuya Christian gained through years of his experience in showbiz. 

Christian has also gone into songwriting and he has given some of his compositions to “The Clash” discoveries, like “Ako Naman” to Clash 3 winner Jessica Villarubin and “I Need to Know” to Clash 1 finalist Psalms David. 

Other songs Christian penned are “Huling Harana”, “Kapit”, “Musika” and “Ikaw Lamang” that he included in his newest album. 

Christian is truly blessed as other artist are jobless because of the pandemic but he remains busy. 

Aside from “AOS” and “The Clash”, he is now doing lock in taping for a musical series for a company called Viu, “Still”, with Julie Anne San Jose, Bituin Escalante, Gab Pangilinan and other theatre actors. 

“The story is something I can relate with as its about artists during the pandemic,” he says. 

“It reveals their heart and soul, examining themselves if they’re still relevant to the times, should they stop or should they keep on going? It aims to provide inspiration in these uncertain times. 

"The songs are really good. We’ve finished our first leg of lock in taping in a place full of trees in Indang, Cavite and we’ll have the second one soon. We’re so proud of it as it’s shot like a movie. We can’t wait to show it to all of you.” 

Is he and his wife Kat Ramnani planning to have a baby soon? 

“It’s currently on hold. Mahirap mag-baby while we’re in the midst of a pandemic. We don’t even know the effects yet the vaccine might have for pregnant women and prospective mothers. So we’ll wait muna until this health crisis is over. 

"Ang gusto namin, when things get back to normal, magbakasyon muna kami in another country for a change kasi ang tagal na nating naka-quarantine.”

Right now, his wife Kat continues to serve as his inspiration to do and be better in his personal and professional life. 

“Once you become married, you don’t just think of yourself but also your better half,” he says. “You want to do everything to make her happy, to provide for her and prepare for your future family. 

"We’re confident that with the Lord’s help, we will able to get through this pandemic safely as a couple.”
