If it were all up to her, veteran singer Regine Velasquez said she would not allow her son Nate to join show business.

Velasquez said she does not want her son to be deprived of his privacy.

Kung ako, ayaw ko. Kasi siyempre alam ko na medyo mahirap being in the business, ‘yung wala ka masyadong privacy. I also don’t want him be in that position where he’s always being criticized, especially in his generation now. The social media is very cruel,” she said, adding that it will break her heart to see anything against her son.

Despite this, Velasquez said she will still support whatever her son wants to be when he grows up.

“Both his parents are in the business… Kung one day ma-decide niya na ‘yan ang gagawin niya, wala naman akong magagawa kasi siya ‘yun eh. May sarili siyang pagkatao and pangarap. I want for him to be able to do whatever he wants in life. Ayaw kong ako yung masunod,” she said.

For now, Velasquez said it makes her happy to be able to share Nate to her followers through her personal Instagram account.

I do Instagram kasi it’s my personal [account]. It’s not a show. It’s just us at the house taking pictures and videos. Pero kapag TV kasi, iba na ‘yun. Ayaw kong maano na siya na magtatrabaho na siya,” she said.

Nate is Velasquez’s son with her husband, singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid. (MNS)
