During a recent episode of Tonight With Boy Abunda, Kapamilya actor Paulo Avelino couldn't help but get emotional over what host Boy Abunda asked him: "The man in the mirror, he's a father, he's an actor, he's a boyfriend. Who is he first?"

"Naiiyak ako, ah," he said while holding back his tears. "Well, I've always wanted to be a father first but maraming komplikasyon, maraming misunderstandings. But, yeah, I've always wanted to be a father first."
