Mark Herras admitted that he is working extra hard now that he has a new baby. He is the father of the baby of a GMA-7 senior handler. He and the handler had a child when Mark was still in a relationship with actress Ynna Asistio.
“Ganun naman siyempre talaga ang sasabihin nila, dahil mayroon nga akong inamin at may kasamang responsibilidad iyon.”
He was talking about the public perception that he is working doubly hard now because of his first baby. Actually, Mark said he has always been hardworking, and not just because he has a baby.
When he enters showbiz, he knows that it’s just work. So, he promised himself that he will work hard and save up for his future. “Pero ngayong may anak na ako, dagdag inspirasyon siya para lalo pa akong magsikap.”
Mark said he’s busy taping for “Rhodora X,” but he will make sure he has time for his daughter. When he has time, he wants to see his baby.
“Kasi sa ngayon, ang sarap-sarap tingnan ni baby. Ang sarap-sarap hawakan ng kanyang kamay kapag hinawakan niya ang daliri ko, na hinihigpitan niya ang kapit.”
He cannot describe the way he feels when he’s with his daughter. How does he take care of her? He usually just looks at her and touches her.
He has not experienced changing her diapers yet because he’s still scared of handling and carrying her. When he sees that she needs her diaper changed, he just hands her over to her mother.
Mark said his manager, Lolit Solis, was surprised when she learned about the pregnancy. He denied that she was irritated by what happened.
Mark said Lolit is like a mother to him.
