Parenthood is one of the most anticipated moments that most married couples are looking forward to. Preparing for their new life as a growing family is exciting and scary at the same time. While some newlyweds choose to enjoy their married life together for a few more years, some cannot wait to have their little mini-mes running around their homes.
Recently, Kapuso star and comedian Jan “PacBoy” Manual announced his engagement to his non-showbiz girlfriend.
Jan Manual tried out his luck in show business when he auditioned for GMA 7’s famous reality talent competition, StarStruck. Jan was one of the hopeful auditionees of season 4. Luckily, Jan was chosen to be one of the Avengers who will compete in the show.
Jan was able to get into the Final 14 until he was eliminated from the show. The winners for his season were Kris Bernal, Aljur Abrenica, Jewel Mische, Rich Asuncion, and Prince Stefan.
After his stint at StarStruck, he made an appearance in the entertainment talk show, Startalk TX. He made an appearance with Chariz Solomon, anothrr StarStruck alum, and he started imitating Manny Pacquiao. He became known as “PacBoy” and regularly appeared in the blind item segment called “Da Who?” of Startalk TX.
Jan also had acting projects like The Last Prince and Panday Kids. He also joined Amaya, My Daddy Dearest, and Prinsesa ng Buhay Ko, where he was reunited with his former StarStruck batchmates, Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal.
Eventually, Jan joined Bubble Gang’s search for their newest set of comedians who will be part of the show. Jan won the competition despite him competing while still having an on-going teleserye.
Together with his showbiz success, Jan is also winning in his love life. Jan made his announcement on Facebook last October 2017 that he is already engaged with his non-showbiz girlfriend, Jamey Santiago. They have been together for almost three years already before he popped the big question.
Jan and Jamey got married last June 2018 in a resort and events place in San Mateo, Rizal. The person that they chose to officiate their wedding was his fianceé’s father who is also a bishop and a pastor.
Now, the newlyweds has been blessed with an early Christmas gift.
The couple just announced that they are expecting a baby!
Jan revealed in an interview with PEP.ph which was published last December 1, 2018, they weren’t really planning on having a child this year.
Jan said, “”Gusto ni Jamey next year pa talaga, pero sabi ko kung ibigay this year, pasalamatan na rin natin.”
Jan also shared his wife’s cravings.
“Meron po. Chicken nuggets with cold water. May one time na may gusto siyang kainin nang 3:00 AM. Naghahanap siya ng taho!”
The couple is so thankful for this blessing and says that their family will definitely be God-centered.
