In an interview with ABS CBNs PUSH, Romnick Sarmenta narrated the main reason why he left Show business. Romnick, together with his wife Harlene Bautista have been together for 18 years now and already have 5 kids.
When they got married in 1999, they decided to leave Showbiz because they wanted to be hands-on in taking care of their kids, “Kami kasi ni Harlene, ayaw kasi namin ‘yung feeling na pagka-may kailangan ‘yung anak mo or may sakit or may masakit sa anak mo, tumatakbo sa yaya. Gusto namin sa amin tumatakbo eh so nagdecide kami.”
He also shared that they didn’t hire any nanny for their kids. He also said that he wants to make sure that he’s there as his kids grow.
“Sabi namin konting panahon lang kasi ang mga bata. I mean lahat ng magulang siguro maiisip ‘to. Up to a certain time, lalayo at lalayo sila sa’yo. Magtatayo sila ng sarili nilang pamilya. And they only have a number of years para maenjoy mo ‘yung company nila and hopefully, mabuild mo ‘yung character nila. We can always have time for our own plans pero ‘yung mga bata na ipinagkatiwala sa’tin ng mga Diyos, kailangan nandoon tayo while they’re growing up.”
