Jennlyn Mercado moved in to her new house in a village in Quezon City near where her old house was. She doesn’t want to reveal yet the details about her new house because it’s not fully ready yet.
She just has to move in because the new owners of her old house are moving in already. She wasn’t even with her family when they moved because she was shooting for her new movie with Derek Ramsay, “English Only, Please.”
Jen decided to buy a new house because Alex Jazz, her son with ex-boyfriend Patrick Garcia, is growing big already. She also has a large family, so it’s only right for them to have a bigger house.
She’s doing this for Alex because he will provide for his family in the future. Jen’s showbiz career is not forever, so she wants to give the best to her son as much as she can.
Alex Jazz is the reason she’s working, she’s saving up and she’s investing.
Aside from her new house, Jen will also launch her three-story building in Quezon City. She will have the stalls for lease. The actress said she partnered with some of her friends in the business.
On the first floor, there will be a spa and coffee shop with organic pastries. On the second floor, there will be a yoga and heat program with routines. On the third floor, there will be a dance studio for zumba, hiphop, burlesque, jazz, etc.
Jen believes she has to start preparing for the future, not only for her family but for herself as well. She doesn’t want to depend on someone else, just in case she’ll settle down.
She said that women must be able to stand up on their own feet, and that they should not be dependent on anyone.
Meanwhile, Jen admitted she’s now dating someone. She’s single, so there’s nothing wrong with that although she is still focused on her work, her son and her family.
She doesn’t want to reveal who the guy is, however. She doesn’t even want to say if he’s showbiz or non-showbiz.
Jen wants to keep it private. She already learned from her mistake in the past, that’s why she’s keeping her personal life private from now on. She learned from the past that there are things better left to herself.
She doesn’t have a boyfriend yet, Jen said. She’s simply dating again after her breakup with Luis Manzano last year.
For now, Jen is not ready for another commitment. She has many things she’s taking care of, commitments she has to attend to.
Jen denied that the man she’s dating is Derek. She said they’re just friends.
