Billy Crawford opened up that it is one of his American father’s wishes that he gets to meet the television host’s baby boy with wife Coleen Garcia.
His father, Jack Crawford, is currently residing in the United States.
“Growing up kasi close family talaga kami. To see my dad, ang pangarap niya kapag kausap ko sila, ang sinasabi niya, ‘Son, I’m just holding on para makilala ko lang yung anak niyo,’” he said in a report from Pilipino Star Ngayon.
Billy explained that his father is already old and dealing with health complications.
The soon-to-be dad shared that he has learned many lessons from his father that he will soon impart to his child.
“Pero maraming akong natutunan at maraming akong maituturo sa aming anak dahil sa ama ko. And I owe a lot to my dad. I owe it all to my parents. Ako ang goal ko is to be the better version of my father for myself. And I want to be the better version of myself para sa akin newborn,” he shared.
On Instagram, Billy penned a heartfelt Father’s Day message for his dad where he expressed how he wants to be the best dad in the world just like his father.
“I look up to you and Im good even if I only become at least half the man you are cause you are AMAZING,” he wrote.
Early May, Billy and Coleen announced that they are expecting their first child.
The couple, who met in noontime show It’s Showtime, tied the knot in April 2018.
