Patrick Garcia finally breaks his silence about ex-GF Jennylyn Mercado and their son Alex Jazz or AJ. Patrick Garcia said he never doubted that he was the father of AJ saying, “Ever since from the start naman, wala naman akong sinasabing ganoon, e.” He said he only saw his son through a picture in a magazine because Jennylyn Mercado forbids him from seeing their child. Patrick said he wants to see him one day.

“Of course naman siyempre, pero mas maganda sana pag live, di ba? Pero ayun, medyo nakakalungkot din, of course, kasi you’re longing to touch him. Pero, of course, one day I hope, kung maluwag sa loob ni Jennylyn and everything. Kumbaga, parang it’s too long na rin naman.”

Patrick Garcia also laments that contrary to the rumors, he made so many efforts to reach out to Jennylyn and their son:

“She knows the effort. Kumbaga, ang dami kong ginawang effort ever since she was pregnant pa lang.”

He also does not believe that Jennylyn’s media pronouncements that she is open now to Alex Jazz meeting up with his father:

“Parang I can still feel the ano, e…parang hindi pa rin welcome. Baka if I make a move, baka mamaya it will spark one more thing na hindi ko alam kung anong away na naman ito.”

On the subject of Jennylyn Mercado‘s soon to be launched coffee table book. Patrick Garcia candidly said he would not buy the book to not rekindle the pain he also suffered. Patrick said: “Ahh, siguro hindi. Para hindi ko ma-feel ang pain…”

But Patrick approves of whatever public exposure that Jenylyn decides for their baby:

“Oo naman. I mean, she’s the mother. And she has all the right naman. For me, I see it in a different point of view na she’s proud to show our baby to the people.”

When asked if she greeted Jennylyn Mercado a Happy Mother’s Day?

“Hindi ko binati, I don’t have her number also. And I don’t think it will be… I sound plastic lang. Kumbaga, Happy Mother’s Day, tapos baka sabihin niya, ‘Sino ito?'” Patrick grins.
