Jolina doesn’t want to be pressured on having a baby

A week after she tied the knot with Rivermaya’s  Mark Escueta, Jolina Magdangal is fending off questions about when she will have her first baby.

“Ayaw kong isipin na lahat nag-aabang doon,” Jolina said at the Christmas party her management company, PPL  Entertainment Inc., headed by Perry Lansigan threw for the entertainment press.

After all, Jolina insists she did not get married in private rites last Nov. 21 at Splendido Taal Golf and Country Club just to have a baby.


She took the plunge because “I already found the man I want to be with for the rest of my life.”

But don’t get her wrong.  Jolina swears she wants to have a baby badly.

“Gustong-gustong gusto kong bumuo ng isang masayang pamilya,” she says.

It’s just that she doesn’t want to pressure herself and Mark for now.

The new bride has many other things on her mind while she and Mark are scouting for a place of their own. 

“Palipat-lipat muna kami – sa Parañaque (where Mark lives) at sa Commonwealth (where Jolina resides),” states Jolina.

Ideally, she wants a place in Quezon City because it is near the network she works for.  But Jolina won’t mind if she and Mark build their love nest somewhere else “if we get a good deal” and as long as it’s not located in the province.

Meanwhile, the couple is understandably still in honeymoon mode.

“Nagre-reminisce pa kami nung nag-start pa kami,” reveals Jolina. That’s the time before the wedding, she explains, when they would discuss which side of the bed each of them will sleep on.

Jolina has no regrets keeping the wedding out of the public’s prying eyes.

“Ang pinakaayaw ko ay yung isipin ng tao kung magkano ang ginastos namin sa invitation,” Jolina reveals.

Seeing how her guests empathized with her and Mark warms Jolina’s heart.

“Nung nakita ko ang reaction ng mga guests namin na umiiyak at tumatawa sa kasal namin, alam kong na-meet ko yung goal ko na i-share yung love namin sa kanila. Ramdam na ramdam nila yung love namin.”
