Aiko Melendez maintains good relationship with the fathers of her kids

"Ang tatay ng mga anak ko, kahit sino pang magselos diyan o magbawal sa ’yo, dapat sa akin na rin mangggaling na hindi dapat gano’n. Dapat I always maintain a good relationship with the fathers of my kids," says Aiko Melendez about ex-husbands Jomari Yllana and Martin Jickain, father of André and Marthena, respectively.

Although her marriage with the actor and model-turned-chef both failed, Aiko still maintained good relationship with them.

Jomari is the father of Aiko’s first child Andre, 13; while Martin is the father of Aiko’s daughter Marthena, 5.

"You know, if there’s one thing na na-realize ko, every time na nagkakaroon ako ng boyfriend, hindi nagiging okay ang relationship ko sa tatay nga mga anak ko," she told the entertainment media in an interview after the press conference of Reputasyon last July 13.

These experiences, according to Aiko, taught her a very important lesson.

"Ang tatay ng mga anak ko, kahit sino pang magselos diyan o magbawal sa ’yo, dapat sa akin na rin mangggaling na hindi dapat gano’n.

"Dapat I always maintain a good relationship with the fathers of my kids.

"Kasi, hindi ko na puwedeng burahin ’yan sa mapa ng puso ko, e, o sa mapa ng buhay ko.

"Forever na ’yan nakatatak.

"So, kung hindi na nga kami okay mag-asawa, tapos makikita pa ng mga anak ko na hindi okay, kahit magkaibigan lang, parang sampung saksak naman sa mga anak ko ’yon.

"Kaya ngayon, ’yan ang ipaglalaban ko.

"Kahit ano pang lovelife ang dumating sa akin, kahit pagselosan pa sila, hinding-hindi ko maalis sa buhay ko ang mga tatay ng anak ko," said the former Quezon City councilor.

Right now, Aiko says she is single and not dating anyone.

"Trabaho muna ako," she said.

"Kung gusto ninyong pumorma, pumorma lang, pero hindi ko priority ’yan ngayon."

Is this because of her past relationships?

"A breakup should never be an option to anybody. It shouldn’t be an option for us to stop loving," she replied.

Aiko also explained, "The mere fact that God has given us feelings, the more na dapat magmahal tayo kasi blessing ’yon.

"Hindi lahat ng tao ay nabibigyan ng pagkakataon na magmahal at mahalin.

"At hindi dapat ang isang pagkakamali, pangalawa o pangatlo, ang dapat maging trauma. Dapat kapag nadapa ka, bangon."

THANKFUL FOR HER KIDS. Aside from her former partners, Aiko is also grateful for her children who are always there to give her joy especially when she’s down.

"Alam mo, ’yon ang na-realize ko, this past few months, after ng breakup ko and after ng pagkatalo ko sa election, [nobody] can replace your children.

"No amount of position, no amount of fame can even replace my kids.

"Alam n’yo, sinasabi ko dati ang lovelife ko dati, masaya ako, ganyan.

"Oo naman, pero ibang joy and contentment ang ibibigay sa ’yo ng mga anak mo.

"Kasi, ang alam ko, ilang man lovelife ang dumating sa buhay ko, itong dalawa kong ito [Andre and Marthena], hindi ako iiwan, hindi ako lolokohin."
