Becoming a father is a turning point in a man’s life and Kapuso actor Geoff Eigenmann is a living proof of that. Eigenmann revealed in an interview with PEP that his life changed 360 degrees as his world now revolves around his little girl, Arabella Simone.
Arabella Simone, now 5-months-old, is Eigenmann’s first daughter with his girlfriend, singer Angeli Mae Flores, or more popularly known as Maya.
“Lahat actually, sobrang naiba yung pananaw ko sa buhay. How I see things, how I tackle things—nag-iba talaga. Siyempre iba yung magiging priorities mo. The spending is different and all that, saka siyempre hindi na sarili mo ang iniisip mo, family na talaga,” Eigenmann said on how having a child changed him.
“I’m responsible for two other people, one of them is our newborn child,” he added.
The first-time father also said that they have yet to finalize the details and plans for Arabella Simone’s baptism, as well as their wedding.
“No rush naman yung wedding, pero napag-uusapan. We’re going strong, we’re almost two years now but as of now, our priority is our daughter. We’re taking it a day at a time.” Eigenmann disclosed.
Eigenmann girlfriend, Maya, is a singer under Star Music. However, she had to put her music career on hold because of their child. But Eigenmann said that Maya is “itching to go back” to performing and singing.
“Actually nami-miss niya [ang pagkanta]. She’s been itching to go back, she’s been wanting to pero mahirap yung responsibility as a new mom.
“Yung priority talaga namin now is our daughter, so puwede naman ma-hold off yung work for a while, pero she’s been itching to go back,” he said.
For his part, Eigenmann is currently busy with his new TV series with GMA, Contessa. Amid his busy schedule, he still makes sure to make some time for his family.
“I guess any parent would agree with me din naman na kahit na sobrang pagod and all that, pag nakita mo ang anak mo, nawawala talaga ang pagod mo. It’s all worth it,” he said.
