Actress Jennylyn Mercado used to be in a relationship with actor Patrick Garcia back in 2008. They got pregnant and were supposed to get married but then the wind blew the opposite direction. Jennylyn decided to raise the baby on her own after cutting her contact with Patrick.
Since then, the actress took care of their child on her own with the two getting together occasionally for their son, Alex Jazz.
Alex Jazz is now 9 years old and he is growing up looking like his dad.
Jennylyn and Patrick, despite having busy schedules, always find time to be with him.
When Jennylyn was asked what her constant problem was, she answered;
“Para sa akin siguro yung time lang talaga. Yun lang pero sa pagpapalaki or sa kung paano ko hina-handle si Jazzy, wala naman akong problema kasi napakabait na bata.”
“Mahirap pero yung mahirap na yun, nakasanayan ko na siya at alam ko na siya kung paano i-handle,” she added.
Alex Jazz or AJ made her mommy Jennylyn proud when he received a medal during his Recognition day last April.
Jennylyn accompanied her son on stage to receive their award. The actress admitted that it was her first time to go up the stage and place a medal around her son’s neck. It was usually what her adoptive mom does to her, and now it is her turn to know how it feels.
“Dati tinitignan ko lang yung [ibang nanay]...ako yung nakaka-experience nun sa nanay ko. Tapos ngayon ako naman yung aakyat sa stage, 'Ay, ganito pala yung feeling!'" She exclaimed.
It would appear that Jazz is growing up as a fine, intelligent young boy even if the situation between his parents is not ordinary.
