Paolo Contis, a known child actor who has been in the industry for over two decades, just gave the monumental performance of his career in the film “Through Night and Day.”
It is also one of the best lead performances by an actor last year which featured the story about ill-fated lovers.
Contis is recognized for doing comedy roles by having debuted in Ang TV, a youth-oriented variety show in the Philippines. He is also a regular in the Bubble Gang show, but the actor’s varied personality showed he can also competently dabble in “serious” roles.”
He is now in soap operas once again, appearing in “Hiram na Anak.” This is currently shown in the mornings before “Eat Bulaga.”
“Balik kontrabida ako rito,” related Contis. “I play Benjo, a seaman na mahilig sa chicks. Nabuntis ko si Empress Schuck pero ayokong panagutan. Gusto ko, makisama na lang siya sa’kin, pero may kinakasama na rin ako sa bahay, si Lauren Young, so pagsasabayin ko sila. Tiyak na maiinis na naman ang viewers sa’kin dito, lalo na nga’t may gagawin ako sa mag-asawang Yasmien Kurdi at Dion Ignacio na magiging dahilan para mabago ang buhay nila.”
The central theme of family drama of Contis’ new soap touches the surface of the actor’s behind-the-scenes life. It is known that he is in a relationship with LJ Reyes and already has a daughter with her. “Hands on kami sa pag-aalaga sa kanya,” he expressed.
Asked by People’s Journal Mario Bautista if the celebrity sees himself and LJ walking down the aisle, Contis answered, “Yes. As soon as maayos lahat ng legalities, I’d love to marry her. But I’m still legally married to someone else.”
This is in reference to former dancer Lian Paz, who now lives in Cebu with their two daughters and her own new partner.
“But I cannot talk about our annulment case. Basta nasa korte pa siya, pero inaayos naman namin. Aware naman si LJ sa status ko and she’s very patient about it. Alam naman niyang she’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with,” added Contis.
As for his two daughters with Paz, Contis has this to say, “I love them but magkalayo kami so I hope one day, maipaliwanag ko sa kanila ang lahat at, sana, ma-meet din nila balang araw ang sister nilang si Baby Summer. Alam mo, habang tumatanda ka, you just want to have a peaceful, quiet life. Kung anuman ang mistakes na nagawa mo before, you just want to correct them and live harmoniously with everyone in your life.”
Last month, Paolo Contis and LJ Reyes welcomed their first baby”Summer Ayanna”and they were overly active in documenting their parenting experiences with funny videos and photos on their social media accounts.
It is pretty obvious that Paolo Contis is having fun taking care of his baby girl with LJ Reyes. And recently, he posted a funny clip on his Instagram account of him drinking Reyes’ breast milk last Friday, with the caption “ISANG PAALALA: Breast milk is still best for babies up to 34 years old” that captured the attention of the netizens.
It started when Reyes was looking for her breast pump, saying “Love, nakita mo yung Haakaa ko ?”
Paolo immediately answered, “Hindi!” but suddenly took the ‘Haakaa’ out. LJ was surprised that he was using her breast pump. He asked Paolo why he was using it? Paolo answered her immediately, “Akala ko bagong baso natin ‘to,” thinking the milk it contained was prepared for breakfast. His wife then told him that it is her Haakaa where she puts her breast milk.
In shocked expression, pretending he didn’t know what he drank, he said, “Breast milk ito? I’ve been breastfed for a week already? Kaya pala ang lusog ko. Ang sarap ah.”
The funny clip was followed by another short video on Instagram Stories shared by LJ of Contis drinking a small bottle of her breast milk. “Inubos niya talaga iyan! Di ko kaya ‘tooooo!”
Paolo Contis is one of the cast members of a longest-running comedy program in the country, “Bubble Gang” of GMA network. His post brought laughter to the netizens and their reactions in telling him he is really good, just like on television.
Actress LJ Reyes launched her newest business venture named ‘Wonder Jane‘.
Wonder Jane is a new business she is venturing into. Her family’s fondness of travelling inspired her to come up with this idea of a travel kit, consisting of 5 items, packed in a pouch.
The Undercover Wash is a SLES-free liquid soap with no artificial fragrance. It can be used as a shampoo, facial wash, body cleanser and hand wash. The Bug Rescue is a mosquito repelling spray. The Hand Sanitazer, their very own hand sanitizer with an all-natural custom scent. The Anti-Stink Bomb, a natural poop spray, and the Bum Shield which is a set of disposable toilet seat covers.
The kit is sold for P850.
“In the near future, magkakaroon din kami ng re-fill kasi ayoko ng gamit-tapon. So since ito, very durable yung kit, yung pakete, yung pouch, yung mga bottles. I tried na lahat maging durable siya as much as possible sana we stay away from plastic but hindi kasi pwede na glass ‘to kasi yung bottles kasi mababasag. So ginawa ko nalang magkakaroon siya ng re-fill in the future.”
So why Wonder Jane? It is because her real name is Lourna Jane! She also shared that this will be the first product and she’s planning to do a lot more in the future, like a possible line for babies.
“Si Wonder Jane, naisip ko siya kasi ang dami dami kong gustong gawin pa in the future.”
