His acting prowess was recognized by many after his breakthrough performance in “Mars Ravelo’s Dyesebel”. His character in the said show became so popular that he even got his screen name from it.

Since then, he has appeared on several mainstream films and TV shows including “Supahpapalicious”, “Shake, Rattle & Roll X”, “Ang Panday”, “Kid Kulafu”, “Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan”, “Darna”, and “Panday Kids”.

A few years ago, Villar made headlines when he proved anyone that he has grown out of his child star demeanor.

He surprised everyone when he revealed his relationship with his American partner, Angillyn Serrano Gorens.

They have been together since February 2016 and the two of them made bigger news when they announced that they are expecting their first child.

Now, at 20 years old, Villar is a proud father to a eight-month-old baby girl named Vlanz Karollyn.

In an interview with PEP.ph, Villar says that he is trying his best to give most of his time and to be a hands-on father to his daughter.

“Siyempre nagtatrabaho po ako… pero kapag wala naman akong trabaho, nandun talaga ako, nakatutok sa mag-ina ko.

“Kumbaga, sobra akong proud na proud dahil mayroon akong anak na napakaganda, manang-mana nga lang sa kanyang ina.

“Pero sobrang saya ko na ang pagtatrabaho ko ay hindi lang para sa akin kundi para sa pamilya ko, sa anak ko, at sa asawa ko,” he said.

Although he is not as active in the show business as before, Villar still makes occasional TV appearances.His role in the 2016 remake of Encantadia is one of his most recent television projects.

He also now part of the primetime series “Inday Will Always Love You”.

He added that he adapted to fatherhood by managing his time well and knowing his priorities.

“Actually, wala namang nabago sa mismong personalidad ko. Kung may nabago man, siguro yung time, kasi nahahati na. Di katulad ng dati.

“Kapag mag-sports ako or magba-basketball ako, di na masyadong puwede. Hindi na muna sa barkada, kumbaga focus na lang muna sa baby talaga. ‘Tsaka gusto ko naman talaga na kalaro yung anak ko lalo na ngayon na palalaro siya lagi,” he said.

He also said that he and Gorens are planning on having more kids in the future but they are currently focused on working and saving money for their future.

Aside from his showbiz career, Villar is also interested in putting up a business.

Villar said marriage plan is underway after TV host Willie Revillame has promised in the past that he will shoulder the expenses of their wedding and trip abroad.

When asked about some updates on Revillame’s promise, Villar answered, “Actually, nagsabi siya sa amin na sagot niya ang kasal namin. At saka, reregaluhan niya kami, iti-treat niya kami sa bansang Korea.

“Naghihintay na lang kami. Actually hindi pa nga kami nakakapunta sa kanya. Pero napunatahan ko na siya. Kaso nung time na yun ay busy nga siya.

“Pero sana ibigay pa rin niya kasi umaasa pa rin kami. Pero this time, kasama na namin yung anak namin.”
