Melai Cantiveros and Jason Francisco

MANILA - Former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Jason Francisco said he will be staying in the country with his wife, Melai Cantiveros, and their baby Mela.

Francisco, who earlier planned on working abroad, said on Thursday's episode on "Kris TV" that he will stay in the Philippines after he and his wife renewed their contract with Star Magic.

"Eh may kontrata pa ulit, na-renew 'yung kontrata sa Star Magic so may one year pa ulit kami," Francisco said.

Right now, Francisco and Cantiveros are busy taking care of their baby in General Santos City.

They are planning to return to Manila this June to fulfill their showbiz commitments and set the christening of their daughter.

"Pagbalik ko sa Manila, back to work," said Cantiveros, who was personally invited by Kris Aquino to return to "Kris TV" as a co-host next month.

Francisco and Melai joined showbiz in 2009 as housemates of "Pinoy Big Brother."
