Regine Velasquez shared this unforgettable instance with son Nate
Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez shared the tough decision that she made as a mother to her son Nate with husband Ogie Alcasid.
Regine is one of the prominent concert performers in the Philippines. It is quite normal for her to have shows and concerts in a year. However, there was one particular concert that she will never forget.
It is because an incident happened that raised her concern as a mother to the highest possible level. Based on the article from PEP, the singer shared during her recent vlog that there was a time when she could not be there for her son.
It was during her two-day concert at the SM Mall of Asia with Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, and Lani Misalucha back in 2015. Regine and Ogie decided to stay in a hotel near the concert venue for lesser time to travel. Since Nate, who was three years old at that time, loved staying in hotels, so, it was a win-win decision for them.
However, the night before the concert, Nate started to throw up and that really worried Regine. On the day of the concert, the singer wasn’t at ease while preparing.
On the other hand, the show must go on, as what performers have to do. Nate was brought to the hospital at the time of the concert but Regine kept on calling her husband to check the condition of their son.
“Nag-sound check nung tinawagan ko. Nasa ospital na, nilagyan na ng suwero. Parang, oh my goodness. I can’t stop crying, so namamalat na ako,” she shared.
Regine Velasquez shared that she can’t explain what she felt during the concert. It was a weird feeling for her.
“I wanted to be there because, you know, nai-imagine ko kapag nilagyan ng suwero, iiyak. Hindi ko maano. Medyo masakit for me that I wasn’t there,” the singer said.
Then, when she performed the song If You Go Away, her tears overflowed. She was really saddened by the fact that she can’t be there for her son.
“Maraming beses na siya nagkasakit, but this particular experience I cannot forget because I had to work. And I wasn’t with him when they took him to the hospital,” the singer shared.
Regine Velasquez hopes that this kind of scenario, wherein she had to do a tough decision once again involving her son, will never happen again.
