Halo Eve Lao Eigenmann ang magiging pangalan ng first baby ni Sid Lucero at ng girlfriend niyang si Bea Lao.
“Si Bea kasi, ever since she was younger, parang sabi niya na ever since she was a kid, she’s always dreamt of naming her son, her first son or first daughter, “Halo.”
“And when she told me that, sabi ko, ‘Okay! You’re the mom and I like it.’
“But I wanted to name her after my mom and my sister coz my mom is Eva, my sister was named after her, so she’s Eve.
“So, she’s Halo Eve,” kuwento ni Sid sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) nang bisitahin namin siya sa set ng Love & Lies sa Antipolo City kamakailan.
EXCITED FATHER. Magiging anong klaseng ama kaya si Sid para kay Halo Eve?
“We’ll see,” sabay tawa niya.
“She’s on her... kaka-six months lang, so nasa seventh month siya ngayon.”
Ano ang mas nararamdaman niya na magiging tatay na siya—excitement or nerbiyos?
“Noong una, nerbiyos at saka takot, e. Now, it’s more excitement.
“Pero siyempre, habang papunta ako doon sa due date niya, hindi ko alam, hindi ko alam—I just don’t know.
“I’m trying to focus on the brighter side of things... I’m more focused on the excitement.
“Kasi, like pag nakakausap ko ang pamilya ko, they’re all like, ‘Noong ipinanganak ka... ganito, ganyan.’
“’Noong ipinanganak si ganito, si ganyan, it’s gonna be like this, it’s gonna be like that.’
“Ako, I’m like, ‘Alam ko, sige na, just let me get into that, darating din ako diyan. Huwag ninyo na akong pangunahan,’ parang ganoon.”
DEDICATION. Nakatakdang manganak si Bea sa August. May plano ba silang pabinyagan agad ang baby?
“Pinag-usapan namin yun and hindi. Kasi, I was baptized Born-again.
“And we don’t believe that anyone has a right to say yes for you when you’re talking about believing in God.
“So, we might have her dedicated.
“In the Born-again way, we dedicate our lives to raising the child in the name of God.
“And when the child is old enough to make a decision on what religion he or she wants, then bahala siya doon,” paliwagan niya.
Anong ugali ba niya ang gustong mamana ng kanyang anak?
“I just hope she grows up with proper morals, that’s it,” saad niya.
GODPARENTS. Wala ibang kinumbidang artistang ninang si Halo Eve kung hindi si Alessandra de Rossi.
Sa mga ninong naman, kasama sina Coco Martin, Rob Sy at Bernard Palanca.
Hindi ba niya kukunin si Heart Evangelista na kaibigan rin niya at na-link sa kanya dati?
“Parang wala pa naman yata [sa list] si Heart, hindi ko pa siya nakakausap,” at natawa si Sid.
“With people from the industry na magiging ninong at ninang, they all offered, e.
“Although it was Alex that I really asked.
“Now that you think about it, I’ll think about it... now that you mentioned it, I’ll think about it, I’ll ask her [Heart].”
WEDDING PLANS. Wala pa sa immediate plans nina Sid at Bea ang pagpapakasal.
“Wait… since the baby is due soon and since my savings are going to be more for supporting the baby and all, we’re gonna have to push that aside.
“Weddings are expensive,” dugtong niya kaagad.
“And we’ll have to get a house first, make sure the baby has a nice place to stay and we’re working on it now.
“So, I don’t want this… kasi yung wedding naman, marrying Bea naman is always there.
“I don’t enter into a relationship that I don’t think I wanna marry the person.
“And now that this has happened, ayoko namang i-fast forward yun dahil dito.
“Things might change and all that I want is to keep it open, but because this is the way it is, you know.
“Of course, it’s always there and I think that’s what I’m gonna do.
“Pero I don’t wanna talk about marriage kasi baka na lang lumabas yun...
“Mababasa niya and then baduy na pag magpo-propose na ako, alam na niya—inunahan ninyo ako mag-propose,” at tumawa si Sid.
NOMINEE. Sa kabisihan ni Sid sa taping ng Love & Lies ay hindi siya makaka-attend sa Cannes Film Festival.
Nominado ang tatlong pelikula niya na si Sid ang artista: ang Death March, Oasis at Norte.
“Sadly no, pero the production of GMA did their best, they really tried, pero no.
“Sadly no and it’s still a blessing for me because I’m not working just for myself anymore,” tukoy ni Sid sa magiging anak nila ni Bea.
