The 40-year-old actor Derek Ramsay is currently in a relationship with non-showbiz girlfriend Joanne Villablanca for almost 3 years now.
In a previous interview, Derek revealed that they are already living under one roof and marriage is something that can happen anytime soon.
KAMI learned from PEP that during Derek's interview with Showbiz Talk Ganern sa DZRH on December 18, Monday, the actor shared his thoughts on marriage and his plans of quitting showbiz for good.
There is no definite date yet but they have been talking about marriage already and if that happens, he might say goodbye to his acting career since he wanted to focus on his family.
“Kilala niyo ako, pag may ginawa ako, di ba, sobrang focused ko? Kagaya sa sports ko, sa career ko.
“So, pag ginawa ko yun, gusto ko naka-focus na ako sa pamilya ko.”
“Pag kasal kasi… ako, hindi puwede na pag kasal lang, tapos diretso na balik ng trabaho.
“Ako, hindi. Mag-focus muna para gawing stable ang marriage, tapos tingnan natin kung ano ang mangyari sa showbiz career ko.
“Kilala ko sarili ko, e. Pag mangyari yun, gusto ko mag-focus talaga sa pamilya ko.”
If there will be offers in the future, he will think about it since his love for acting and showbiz will always be there.
“Parang ganun ang mangyayari,”
“Maybe I’ll do a movie here and there, but… I’m not sure.
“I have to really give it a lot of thought over the holiday, to figure out what I’m going to do.
“Pero mahal na mahal ko ‘tong ginagawa ko, so it’s not really easy to turn my back.
“Tingnan n’yo naman, ilang beses kong tinatalikuran ang Frisbee, pero pabalik-balik ako.
“So, you know… yung kasalan, it’s really a big responsibility, commitment.
“I want to give it all of me, para alam kong hindi lang ano,” he added.
He still hasn't mentioned it to Joanne but he's really decided that this is what he wants.
“Si Joanne naman is very supportive of whatever it is I want to do. Hindi niya ako pini-pressure.
“Hindi niya ako pinipigilan if ever ikasal kami na kailangan ko na mag-quit sa showbiz. Wala siyang ganun.”
He knows that he will definitely be happy with his future wife and therefore their marriage will be his top priority.
“Nakita n’yo naman ako, sobrang saya ko ngayon sa buhay ko, di ba?
“Tinitingnan ko yung sarili ko sa salamin, iba ang hitsura ko, tuwang-tuwa ako.
“Sana yung istorya ko, dun na papunta,” Derek shared.
