Fortunately for us, we don't need to wonder about that for now. In a recent interview with, Kapamilya hunk Piolo Pascual said that he was ready to say goodbye to show business so he can settle down and spend more time with his son in the US.

Para bago man lang maging adult ang bata, I can give him more time physically. That's one of the factors and parang gusto ko rin naman magpahinga, so iyon (I'm probably tired, since I've been doing this half of my life. One of the reasons why is because I wanted to devote more time to my son [Iñigo], so that I can give him more time, physically, before he grows up. That's one of the factors, and I also want to rest, so there)...” the actor explained.

He further revealed that his latest movie with Toni Gonzaga, Starting Over Again, could've been his last.
