At the grand press conference of upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye Asintado, actor Aljur Abrenica was asked about his family life.

The actor replies that, upon learning the ropes firsthand, he better understands his father; admitting that the two of them often clashed with each other.

“Kasi kadalasan hindi ko siya maintindihan noon eh. Medyo nagka-clash kami eh. Pero kapag nagkaanak ka na, lahat pala ng pinanggagalingan ng tatay, bali-baliktarin mo eh makakabuti para sayo.” (Back then, I couldn’t understand him as well. We clashed a bit, but when you get a kid; everything your father told you is for your own good, no matter what.)

He is quite busy with his work on Asintado ongoing, although he makes it a point to spend time with his fiancée, Kylie Padilla, and their son, Alas Joaquin. Abrenica shares that they do the household chores together, and that they sometimes employ the help of his mother or Padilla’s Tita Mariel Rodriguez, who is the wife of her father, Robin Padilla.

The hardest part of being a father, according to the actor, is to comfort his son. He admits how hard it is to comfort his son, especially now that he is teething.

Asintado is set to show on January 15th on ABS-CBN.
