Katrina Ojeda, Martin Nievera’s US-based non-showbiz girlfriend, has now broken her anonymity and granted her first television interview to GMA-7 showbiz talk show S-Files.
Katrina said in the live phone interview on November 26 that her life has made a big turn since giving birth to Santino Nievera—Martin’s first child with her—last October 23. “It was a 360 degree turn. I had so much time for myself. Now, it’s all for the baby.”
Martin, she said, gave her the strength in facing the challenges of motherhood. “[Martin was of] great help. I didn’t have the courage that I have if Martin wasn’t there with me. I miss you dear. I love you. Come home soon.”
She closed the short interview by saying: “Thank you for giving a chance to introduce our son.”
Martin, who called Katrina for the interview, talked more about the joys of having another child after 16 years.
“Ingat na ingat like the baby is such a fragile toy. It’s the same joy, the same happy feeling. Now my kids are Kuyas. It’s a great feeling having a baby [again.]
“You can just imagine the attachment. I miss them terribly.”
His first two sons, Robin and Ram, were with ex-wife Pops Fernandez, whom Martin is seriously considering to become his new child’s godmother.
“I know in this world, it leaves a bad taste and it’s just not right. I’m not really going to ask her. We haven’t spoken but we’re texting. I know she’s happy for me and I know she would be.”
