Dennis Trillo, who seldom shares details about his personal life, talked about his 10-year-old son with former beauty queen Carleen Aguilar-Ocampo: "Gusto ko na may respeto, pero respeto yun dahil naiintindihan ko siya. Hindi dahil natatakot siya sa akin."


Even though he's been in showbiz for 18 years, Dennis Trillo has managed to keep the details of his love and family life private.

“Ganoon talaga siguro ako. Hindi pa nasasanay,” Dennis told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on February 21, during a set visit to his new GMA-7 prime-time show The One That Got Away.

But in a rare occasion, the acclaimed actor was game in answering the questions about Calix, his 10-year-old son with former beauty queen Carlene Aguilar-Ocampo.

For Dennis, being a father to Calix is one of his biggest achievements.

“Achievement yun, siyempre naman.”

What is the cutest thing Calix has done for him?

“Ahh…ang dami, e. Siguro, madalas kasi, siyempre minsan, late na ako nakakauwi.

“Kahit na 3 a.m. na, siya pa yung magbubukas ng gate.

“Kapag weekends magkasama kami, na-e-excite siya 'pag umuuwi ako."

Did Calix inherit any of his characteristics?

“Madami, e. Kung may namana siya sa akin, hindi masyado sa itsura pero puro sa pag-uugali, attitude.

“Yung hilig niya sa music, sa arts. Nag-e-excel siya sa theater arts.

“Yung pagka-naughty niya.”

Does he spoil his son or does he try not to give him everything he asks for?

“Wala akong matandaan na hiningi niya na hindi ko ibinigay.

“Hindi naman siya materialistic pero kapag may nagustuhan siya, minsan, may kailangan siya na patunayan muna, [halimbawa] kapag nag-excel siya sa school.

“Hindi ako ganoon ka-strict pero kinakausap ko siya.

“Hindi parang bata yung kausap, parang isang matured na tao yung kausap ko para ma-explain ko sa kanya.

“Mas maaga pa lang maintindihan niya, hindi siya bine-baby.”

Dennis said he wants Calix to treat him as his best friend.

“Mas maganda yung ganoon, wala siyang itinatago.

“Sinasabi niya yung kailangan niya, kung ano ang problema niya, kung ano yung gusto niyang mangyari sa buhay niya.

“Kapag nagkakamali siya, kailangan mong i-explain kung ano yung pagkakamali niya at kung bakit hindi niya dapat ulitin yun.”

Dennis added that he doesn't spank Calix even when he has done something wrong, because he doesn't want his son to fear him. 

“Ayoko siya na matakot sa akin.

“Gusto ko na may respeto, pero respeto yun dahil naiintindihan ko siya.

“Hindi dahil natatakot siya sa akin. Hindi ako yung talagang namamalo.

“Kami mas istrikto yung pagpapalaki sa amin…sinturon.”

Dennis and Calix bond over watching movies and playing the drums. 

“Nakakapag-jamming na kami sa drums. Ngayong weekend, may father and son camping kami sa school, overnight sa Laguna, sa isang convention center. "
