Jake has the makings of a good Father
In time for Father’s Day last Sunday, Philippine Entertainment Portal wanted to know if Jake Cuenca was ready to be a father. He said ‘Matagal pa, matagal pa… sa ngayon, enjoy muna.’ However, the closeness of his girlfriend Chanel Thomas to his family could mean that Jake might be contemplating stability in the future.
Being husband and father are roles that Jake could be great at aside from acting. The positive relationship he has with his father, full-blooded Spaniard Juanto, spells that being a good father is imprinted in Jake’s nature.
When asked to describe his relationship with Juanto, Jake said: ‘Sobra akong close sa daddy ko, para ko na rin siyang best friend.’
Jake said that his love for cars was all thanks to the influence of his dad, who is voluntarily helping his son maintain his cars while Jake is busy with many showbiz projects: ‘kung hindi dahil sa kanya, baka sira-sira na ang mga kotse ko.’
Juanto has also given Jake and his siblings the gift of travel as children, something Jake highly values now and is thankful for as an adult. As a way of saying thanks, the good son gifted his dad with a sports car.

Jake said that he would like to emulate his father when he gets to that stage in his life. ‘Kapag nagka-anak ako, ganoon siguro ang peg ko sa sarili ko — parang si Papa.
‘Open-minded [si daddy]. Hindi siya ganoon ka-conservative. Kapag nagkakamali ako, nakikita pa rin niya ang bright side. Hindi niya kinu-condemn ang mga pagkakamaling nagawa ko.’
