Paolo Contis did not think the netizens would react positively to the birthday message for her daughter, LJ Reyes, Aki. Aki is the son of LJ with his former boyfriend, Paulo Avelino.
In her photo with Aki, posted by the actor on Instagram last month, Paolo said this short message for the child: "I will always have your back."
Kapuso actor's statement,
“Not for anything naman, hindi ko naman ginawa yun para [mapansin].
“Siguro, kung sino man ang nag-repost nun, felt the sincerity to begin with.“But I did not post it for that. Happy ako na na-feel nila yun.
“But I've been always vocal about LJ and Aki sa mga post ko.
"Siguro nagkataon lang na dahil birthday niya, mas maraming nakabasa.”
Paolo also clarified that she did not use LJ's 7-year-old son to be close to Kapuso actress. He said,
“Dati, I made that clear na hindi ko gagamitin ang anak mo para ligawan kita.
"Kasi, tama naman yun, of course you're a mom...
“May mga ganung tao siguro na, di ba, parang ligawan mo yung magulang, may ganun, e.
"Ito, parang ligawan mo yung anak para...
“Siyempre, ayaw mo namang gawin yun.
“Kung di ka naman sincere na gusto mo yung bata, hindi ka sincere na mahal mo yung bata, huwag mong gamitin.
“E, hindi, Aki is very easy to love, very sweet boy.
“Si LJ is very protective of him, so it took time for us to, kumbaga, para ipagkatiwala niya yung part na yun ng buhay niya sa akin.”
Paolo was interviewed by PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the press conference of GMA-7 primetime series Alyas Robin Hood last week.
FATHER FIGURE. Paolo Contis believe that people could see him as a father figure for LJ's son.
However, he did not intend to change the position of his real father Paulo Avelino.
“It's not my intention but, of course, I'm there for him."He knows that, I'm always there for him.
“I think mas better kasi friends kami. He can technically tell me anything because we're friends."
“Father figure, yes.
"But more than anything, he knows that I'm not gonna judge him because we're friends.
"So, feeling ko, mas fun. Feeling ko, mas strong yung foundation.”
Paolo furthered the fact that he was close to Aki. He believes he just earned it and worked for it. He explains, that the kid's love and respect don't earn by giving him toys he wants nor playing with him. For Paolo, it took time for them to have that kind of relationship.
He is very thankful that LJ giving him the opportunity to do it with Aki. And he thinks that is what makes their relationship stronger.
