Dion Ignacio wants to make sure that he takes all precautions not to get his girlfriend/live-in partner pregnant again.
For now, he wants to save enough money for their two-year old daughter Dylann Jailee, and to eventually build their very own house.
“Ingat lang po kami.
“Marami namang paraan para hindi mabuntis ang partner mo, di ba?
“Hindi ko na kailangan sabihin pa kung ano ang mga iyon.
“Basta kung ano ang effective, dun tayo!" he said with a naughty grin during his interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the media conference for Hiram na Anak at GMA Network Center recently.
Dion revealed that his girlfriend has retired from her job as a flight attendant, and started her own business recently.
When he's not busy with his taping, he makes sure he puts in his share of work in their joint venture.
“Nagtutulungan kaming dalawa.
“Kapag may time ako at wala akong taping ng Hiram na Anak, magkasama kami sa pagpapatakbo ng business niya.
“Kailangan magtulungan kami para sa future ni DJ at sa mga magiging kapatid pa niya.
“Right now, magtu-two years pa lang si DJ.
“Ini-enjoy namin siya habang baby pa siya.
“Kapag ramdam na namin na kailangan na siyang sundan ng kapatid, alam mo na ang susunod!" tawa ulit ni Dion.
Dion has come a long way since his teen days, when he used to be happy-go-lucky.
Thanks to fatherhood, the new Kapuso leading man has become more responsible and mindful of his spending habits.
For one, he doesn't go out as much with his barkada anymore, and whatever money he saves goes directly to their savings account.
“Siyempre, hindi na tayo teenager na gastos dito, gastos doon.
“Thirty-two na tayo at may pamilya na. Lahat ng kinikita ko, iniingatan ko at para iyon sa pamilya.
“Tinutulungan ko pa rin naman yung family ko bukod sa sarili kong pamilya, kaya lahat ng gastos ay maingat kami.
“Kung puwede kaming magtipid sa ganitong bagay, gagawin namin,” he points out.
As the breadwinner, Dion is very thankful for the projects given to him by his home network.
“Kaya thankful ako sa GMA-7 kasi lagi akong may work.
“Tulad nitong Hiram na Anak, blessing ito para sa akin at para sa family ko,” he acknowledges.
