Matt Evans expecting second daughter
MANILA – Actor and former "Pinoy Big Brother" teen housemate Matt Evans is excited to welcome another baby girl later this month.
In an interview with entertainment site Pep, Evans revealed that his wife Katrina is set to give birth on the second week of July.
“Sabi ko nga sa kanya gusto ko ulit pa-ultrasound kasi gusto ko ulit makita yung baby. Girl again, but kahit ano, basta healthy. Kasi syempre, lalaki nga, kung hindi naman healthy, mahirap naman 'yun,” he said.
As early as now, the “Pure Love” actor said they already have decided on a name for their daughter.
“Hayley napakagsunduan namin, kasi si Hayley Williams sa Paramore [American band]. Sobrang gustung-gusto ko 'yung banda na 'yun, 'yung vocalist nila na babae. Actually, it’s Hayley Marley, so Hayley Marley Evans,” he said.
Evans’ first child is with his former partner, Johnelline Hickins, with whom he had an altercation that even resulted in his brief arrest in 2012.
Asked if he still gets to see his daughter with Hickins, Evans said he gets to visit them, adding that they actually maintain a good relationship for the sake of their baby.
“Okay na kami, settled na kami. Tapos na tapos na 'yung kaso at nagkasundo na kami. Actually, natulungan din kami nung pinaka-judge namin at siyempre si Lord. Kakadasal… nakuha sa dasal. Tsaka naging maayos kami, naging magkaibigan kami," he said.
Just like him, Evans said Hickins has also moved on with her life.
Meanwhile, Evans shared how fortunate he is to have a wife who understands how show business works.
"Very supportive siya, siya pa nga ang nag-aasikaso sa akin. Nahihiya nga ako minsan kasi, ‘Malaki na ang tiyan mo, huwag ka nang masyadong kumilos.’ Siya pa yung nag-aayos ng damit ko. Minsan nga, yung schedule ko hindi ko alam, siya pa ang may alam," he said.
