When Jessica Soho and John Lloyd were talking about his past relationships, Jessica brought up Ellen's marriage and John Lloyd said: "Finally, she found the one. I have to put it in context and I have to be very careful because that's her life. Nagsisimula at natatapos sa anak namin yung aking masasabi patungkol sa kanya or sa buhay niya. Kaya when talking about her, I need to be very careful."
He then said some very meaningful and heart-touching words: "Siyempre, sincerely, I wish her all the happiness in the world. And I wish them both a strong and fun marriage kasi vital 'yon sa welfare at sa growth ng anak ko."
During the interview, John Lloyd also opened up about what kind of father he is to Elias. "Sana may kwenta," he joked. "Sabi noong katuwang kong nag-aalaga sa kanya...pinapakinggan naman daw ako ng bata. I try my best to lead without imposing. As much as possible, I try to bring him closer to nature, kung saan may alon. Mahilig siya sa animals." John Lloyd considers El Nido, Palawan as his second home, and says that Elias likes it there, too!
In the past, Ellen has talked about John Lloyd being a good dad to their son. In April 2021, Ellen responded to an IG Stories question that reads: "Does Baby Elias still get to spend time with his dad?"
Ellen said, "Yes, he does. Hatid-sundo na siya si ang papa di ni, 'Day [Hatid-sundo siya ng papa niya, 'Day]. Si John Lloyd, present father. He wants to be present. He needs his father, as much as he needs me." (via PEP)
