Derek Ramsay Speaks Up About Agreement With Estranged WifeDerek Ramsay is at lost for words that he got to see his son, Austin, for more than an hour.
This is part of the amicable settlement he signed with estranged wife, Mary Christine Jolly. Aside from his visitation rights, Mary also withdrew her VAWC and concubinage charge against Derek and Angelica Panganiban.
Derek said his son said a lot of things that melted his heart. In a letter Austin allegedly submitted to the judge, he said he hates his father. But Derek said that's not what his son told him when they were together. He described Austin as a "great, smart" kid.
They are taking this one step at a time, but they took a huge step in terms of father-son bonding.
Derek and Austin are scheduled to see each other again today (November 5). The actor said they'll spend the day together and maybe look for a dog for Austin.
He wants to be his friend, and then work on Austin calling him "dad."
Derek confirmed that Mary and Austin will leave for Dubai next year, but the actor said they already worked out a schedule. Austin is supposed to spend two weeks with him during the holidays, summer and Christmas.
He can also go and visit him, or Austin can fly to the Philippines. He's crossing his fingers that everything will be alright.
Meanwhile, the actor also said he talked to Angelica about the dropping of concubinage charge against her. He also assured her mother that everything is over now.
He felt bad that a lot of people were dragged into their issue. That's what he told Mary the last time they saw each other.
Derek was supposed to file adultery charges against Mary, but they were able to have an agreement. As much as he didn't want to file anything against her, he was pushed to the wall and had to defend himself.
Derek said he's ready to do anything to fight for his son. "Whatever you throw at me sasagutin ko." For now, he's ready to move on from the issues between him and Mary.
On the other hand, although he was traumatized by love, Derek said he still believes in it. He falls hard for his girlfriends.
He doesn't want to give up on love. In fact, he wants more kids in the future.
One of the women being linked to Derek now is Jennylyn Mercado, his co-star in the film "English Only, Please." The actor, however, said he wants to be with a non-showbiz girl for now.
He's pressured to find someone soon because he's already "up there" in terms of age, and he wants a big family.
Derek's last relationship with Cristine Reyes was short-lived. It only lasted for a month.
