Joel opened up that he never felt so complete in life when he decided to have kids.
“Ibang iba kasi yung pakiramdam ng may anak ka, nung wala pa akong anak marami akong nararamdaman na emptiness sa buhay parang may kulang pa.”
“Ang sarap-sarap din ng pakiramdam na andiyan ang mga anak ko, yayakap sa ‘kin ang lahat ng anim na ito, yung sabay-sabay na magtatanong ng kung ano-ano.”
“Hindi ko talaga mapapalitan ang pakiramdam na ganito, na mahal na mahal ka ng anak mo.”
The fragrance entrepreneur also admitted that since he had his kids, his viewpoint in life changed when he single-handedly raised his growing family.
“Akala ko lang noong una, wala akong lover gusto mayroon akong partner na pang matagalan, pero the moment na nagka-anak na ako, ibang iba na ang naging buhay ko.”
“Alam naman ng lahat na I’m gay, minsan mayroon akong partner, lover. Pero minsan nag-doubt din ako na parang ‘totoo ba na mahal ako nito?’ ‘Yung ganun na pakiramdam pero sa anak ko talagang hundred percent, walang duda mahal na mahal nila talaga ako.”
Now, Joel still has plans of adding more kids to his family. It was also generally known to the public that his twins were made through the process in vitro fertilization or IVF.
