MATT Evans said he is very contented and happy with his growing family and blossoming showbiz career.
Prior to this, the Pinoy Big Brother alumnus was involved in numerous controversies surrounding his family. Negative issues also affected his career and he was not seen in television for a long time.
In October last year, the 25-year-old actor surprised many when he tied the knot with non-showbiz girlfriend Katrina Farinas.
“Yung last two years ng buhay ko, sobrang gulo-gulo talaga, roller coaster kumbaga. Pero sabi nga ni Tito Boy (Abunda), aayos din yan,” Matt said.
He’s thankful to mother network ABS-CBN for the continuous support and always believing in his talent.
“Sobrang thankful ako kasi hindi ako pinabayaan ng management. May ups and downs din, dumaan sa awkward stage ng career, pero nakita mo na minahal at may halaga ako sa kanila,” he said.
Starting July 7, Matt will be seen in newest Kapamilya series “Pure Love,” starring Arjo Atayde, Joseph Marco, Yen Santos and Alex Gonzaga.
He will reprise the role of “Scheduler” in the remake of the hit Korean series.
“Masaya kasi, hindi naman dahil sa matagal kong inantay, kundi dahil binigyan ako ng ganito ulit kalaking break sa telebisyon. Napaka vital nung role ni Scheduler doon sa istorya nung programa,” he said.
Aside from a new show, Matt is also awaiting the arrival of his second daughter, Hailey, his first with Farinas.
“Sobrang excited and sabi ko nga sa wife ko na gusto kong ipa-ultrasound lagi para makita yung baby,” he said.
He said life with Farinas made him calmer and happier.
“Status lang talaga ang nagbago. Wala naman kaming hindi pinagkakasunduan. Ako bahay and trabaho, ganun na lang. Wala na din naman kasing ibang gagawin dahil napagsawaan ko na naman lahat. Na-enjoy ko yung pagkabinata ko. Magkakaroon ka lang ata ng hesitations sa pag-aasawa kung di mo pa napagsawaan lahat,” said Matt.
Matt added that he married the best partner, as Farinas is very understanding, patient and supportive of his endeavors.
“Napaka supportive niya and siya pa talaga ang nag-aasikaso ng mga damit at gamit ko. Nahihiya nga ako minsan kasi malaki na yung tiyan niya and dapat di na nagkikilos. Siya din talaga nag-aayos ng schedule ko and nakikipag-usap sa handler ko,” he said.
As for his other child from another non-showbiz girl, Matt said he gets to see his daughter once a week and everything is working out just fine.
“Settled na kami. Everything is falling into place and malaking pasasalamat ko talaga sa Diyos. Nakuha talaga namin sa dasal,” he said. (MNS)
