Aquino wants 5 kids if he gets married



He’s 52 and he wants five.

With the reproductive health (RH) bill, which he certified as urgent, already passed by Congress, how many children does President Aquino want to have?

“The last time I answered that question, I said that for the woman that I will be proposing marriage to, if there is such a lady, if I were to say honestly what’s on my mind … I really want a family the same size as the family that I grew up with,” Mr. Aquino said when asked the question at yesterday’s Bulong Pulungan forum at Hotel Sofitel in Pasay City.

“There seems to be a balance with five,” he said. “But five will be too much now for any woman that I’ll be courting at this point. So can I just answer that that number is negotiable, especially for the person who will be bearing the children.”

The President’s love life has been a favorite subject of the media since he took office in June 2010.

Time to move on

Mr. Aquino said he had long decided that he wanted to settle down and get married. In fact, his mother, the late President Corazon Aquino, had already bought the fabric for the gown the bride would use at the wedding.

It used to be white, her only son said, but has turned yellow with time.

“It’s not for lack of trying,” the President said, eliciting laughter.

On a more serious note, Mr. Aquino expressed hope that, with the “divisive” RH debates over, everybody would find closure.

“When it becomes a law, let us move on … to ensure that all the positive attributes of the bill really are what happens. Let us not [consider] people who have divergent opinions as the enemy,” he said.

No victors, no losers

Mr. Aquino said  Filipinos, regardless of how contentious the RH issue had been, should not be adversarial toward each other. Instead, they should think of themselves as being “united by so many ways, amongst them [belonging] to the same race.”

“Of those who agree with me, I’ve been asking, ‘Look, this is not a battle [where] there are victors and losers. This is a battle where the country can be, especially the women and the children, victors.’ We have to work to ensure that everybody’s committed to doing that.”

In certifying the RH bill as urgent, the President said he only “assisted” in seeing the passage of the measure.

3-day break

“Let’s give credit where credit is due,” he said. “It was Congress who decided, the members of Congress who went really through tremendous pressure … All I can say is I assisted because I really believe in the objectives of the measure. But to claim any credit for it is, I think, presumptuous and improper on my part.”

In the meantime, Mr. Aquino is looking forward to a three-day break during the holidays, when he can probably catch up on his reading, listen to his CDs, and bond with his family.

“I might have three days off this Christmas break,” he said. “It was supposed to be four days but they took one day already.”

Time to pause

But a three-day break is fine by him. After all,  he’s the President of all Filipinos, including close to 10 million working and living overseas—which means that anything can happen.

“If there’s a Somali pirate attack we’re involved. Arab Spring, regardless of the country, we’re involved. A Korean peninsula flare-up, we’re involved. The world economy is bad, we’re involved,” he said.

Mr. Aquino admitted being so fixated about effecting “transformational changes that will stick” that he hardly has time to relax.

But every day, he makes it a point to listen for an hour to his stereo equipment, and reads magazines on military history, stereo equipment, cars and guns to entertain himself. On weekends, he goes target-shooting with members of the Presidential Security Group, which is also part of their training.

These are things that “give me a pause” from other concerns, he said.

Not a machine

Owing to his busy schedule, the President often gets reminders from his Cabinet, especially from Health Secretary Enrique Ona, to take some time off.

“Some members of my Cabinet, like Secretary Ona, keep reminding me, `We are all with you but you are not a machine and even machines tend to have preventive maintenance,’” Mr. Aquino said.

Otherwise, he said, a day off on weekends is sufficient for him.

“So long as I get about a day off in a week, it’s enough to recharge,” he said.

Mr. Aquino was presented by the Bulong Pulungan core group with the “People’s Choice Award” for maintaining his trust rating among the Filipinos halfway into his six-year term.

The group is composed mostly of veteran female journalists who worked with his mother, and is led by the late President’s spokesperson, DeeDee Siytangco.

  • arao_liwanag

    I have a cousin whose spouse most physical attributes have similarities with the President, except that he is not bald and don’t walk like Japanese kamikaze (sakang). For  30 years after marriage  and until now they did not have a child. Finally, last year we had a very honest conversation with Her and asked  why they had not been able to conceived at least one? We asked further If they had consulted a Dr. or if they had danced in Obando, like what Donya Pia Alva did, so she could conceive Maria Clara? She was so gracious and honest enough to confide to us that no Dr. could help them, not even a dance in Obando. Tearfully, she claimed she still a virgin, His spouse has penis like pygmy shrimp (hipong urong) and can’t be brought to at least stand up.

    Now, if the President wants five kids, he rather be sure that his is not a pygmy shrimp. Good luck to the prospective lady.

      Thanks for the laugh :D Is this metaphor widely used? I think my little boy has a hipong urong. I, of course, am a sugpo!

    NICE TALK, Mr President..

    YOU created the division, in the first place, when YOU forced the issue.  YOUR railroading did not heal the division, it cracked it wide open…

    Now you PERSONALLY want (pala) 5 children.  Your support to the RH bill encourages ordinary Filipinos to have LESS children, while you personally want MORE..

    Kahit na dalwampung anak ay kaya mong pakainin ng masasarap, bigyan ng tigi-tigisang bahay, papag-aralin sa sikat na paaralan at tigi-tigisang toilet sa isang bahay. Ang tanong ay kung mayruon ka pang ibubuga?

    • PepingCo

      Meron pang ibubuga si PNoy….. Usok ng sigarilyo! Bwahaha

        Nalimutan ko, sobrang manigarilyo nga pala si Ginoong Aquino. Malamang ay wala na nga! Masama ang sigarilyo sa katawan!

  • PepingCo

    This is a cryptic message from PNoy. Since he is not married to a woman, he is in fact just married to his job as a President. He already has 2 kids in fact: first is a new CJ after removing Corona, and second is the RH bill. Next kids are: the Divorce law, P5 billion payment for Hacienda Luisita under CARP and the last is preventing VP Binay from being the next president. Bwahahaha

  • tanga_hanga_ni_abnoy

    magpakalalaki ka muna, tas manligaw ka tas pag sinagot ka, papakasal kayo tapos saka kayo mag honeymoon tapos pag nabuntis 4 na lang…cge na po, start na d pa huli lahat

    public officials without wife and kids are more idealistic. therefore, they are less corrupt than those with families.

  • hanep

    Tama na ang daldal. Mag – asawa ka na  Pre !!   

    Otherwise,  you’d  have a serious plumbing  problem.

    Then those 5 kids ? They’re gonna be just wishful thinking.

    Get to it ! Before it’s too late.

  • PepingCo

    With the RH bill, di mo na kelangan mag-asawa PNoy. Basta kaya mo magbigay ng ‘satisfying sex’ sa babae, ok na yan. Madali lang 5 kids…. with different women of course! Bwahaha

    5 kids if he gets married? Owww!..

  • EdgarEdgar

    5 kids? Not with your dysfunction Noynoy. Might as well try artificial insemination. Besides, you’re not really into women as some of your celebrated flings could attest to. You’ve always been into guys, guys like Eulalio Diaz III and Sonny Trillanes. Anyway, here’s what Grace Li has to say a few months after she decided to be just friends with you:

    Grace Li tells all . . .

    Media:  What’s the funniest experience you had with Noy?
    Grace:  At first, I thought he was just tired, so I made him take lots of vitamins.
    Media:  Then what happened?
    Grace:  After a month’s vitamins, he still couldn’t get it up. 
    Media:  Then what?
    Grace:  Then my mom advised me to make him eat lots of korean ginseng and he did.
    Media:  And that did the trick?
    Grace:  Still he couldn’t seem to get it up.  And then Midas appeared on TV, lo and behold!
    Media:  Midas?
    Grace:  Yes, Midas the court jester.  As it turns out, Noy and I are both into guys. 
    Media:  But why do you still hang out together, knowing he’s not the man of your dreams?
    Grace:  Knowing he’s gay and all, that’s when we got even closer.  We could talk all day.

    Aba kung totoong gusto ni Pnoy magkaroon ng 5 anak, he should watch the sex video of the DOJ lawyers. Sina ex-PAO Atty. Jihan Jacob at Assisant Quezon City Prosecutor Philip R. dela Rosa. Pnoy can learn a lot from their oral foreplay. Matamlay nga lang yung video.

    Siya nga pala Mr. President, mukang pilit na pinagtatakpan at pinatatahimik ng DOJ ang biktima, yung asawa ng piskal. Dahil anak ni LTFRB Chief James Jacob at Court of Appeals Associate Justice Marie Christine Azcarraga-Jacob ang magulang ng kalaguyo ni piskal. Parehong appointees nyo po yung dalawa. Huwag naman po sanang kampi-kampihan. Wag naman po magkampi-kampihan ang DOJ at ang mga appointees mo komo kapwa Bicolano sina de lima at mga jacob. Ang mali ay mali.

    “Aquino wants 5 kids if he gets married”

    now that’s a big IF.

    maybe aquino wants 5 kids (coz he’s “fond” of kids).

  • breakitdown420

    those 5 kids will most likely be through adoption 

  • agustin

    I just pray that Pnoy can have children with no birth defects such as autism, infantile paralytic or special child as what his nephews are.

    baka pagkatapos ng sex, give me five ang gusto (high five)

    Mr. President, one option is to marry a good woman, who’s legally separated and already has kids.  Trust me, it’s a great option.  Good luck on this, Mr. President.  I disagree with your administration on many issues, but on your personal life, I wish you happiness.

    Well let’s hope the President can find a woman in PH that want’s to subject herself to giving birth to five kids just to please his ego…if it is known that this might be his intention, I suspect many a starlet will give him a very wide berth…..

    si kris aquino na lang ang magbibigay sa iyo ng mga anak mo. 

  • Socorro

    Ang galing talagang magsinungaling at manloko, for all you know you are waiting not for the right wife, so how can you have five children besides with the RH bill  that cannot be anymore, kasi papaabort na lang ang baby ok na.  

  • buttones

    ““So long as I get about a day off in a week, it’s enough to recharge,” he said.”

    It was not so long ago I read that Mr Aquino was saying he only got two days off a year- Xmas and Easter, and at the time I thought that was extraordinary that any human being, given his task of ‘running the country’, could actually go for six long years with only twelve days off- remarkable indeed, not only that, I also was simply staggered to learn that out of the 180 or so sovereign leaders on this earth Mr Aquino stands out as being the only one who never takes a vacation. Now, the only conclusion I can draw from this is that either my President is not really working 24/7, 363 days a year as he says he is, and hardly needs time off anyway and he pulling the wool over my eyes, or we are living in the presence of a super human being…I have not quite yet decided which hat fits… [Clearly I am need of help]

    Oh and by the way Mr President, there is no shame in going on vacation to charge your batteries, it is not a sign of weakness- we all do it….


      How can someone knows the meaning of ‘day off’ when the creature is always ‘OFF’ since it came into being. He was sleeping and had not done nothing at all in congress. He even hide in sickbed at the sight of foreign dignitaries who demands a brain of equals.

  • Your_King

    Its ridiculous how Aquino’s Cabinet is trying to portray Aquino as some kind of hard-working man when in reality he’s essentially has had one long vacation ever since taking office. Other than his typical long speeches what good has he done for the Philippines? His claim to fame is his dad and mom are national heroes and that he put FPGMA in jailed but so what? How does any of these help the poor and the hungry and the unemployed and the victim of natural disasters? Aquino and his crew need to stop playing games and trying to fool the public. He needs to buckle down and have some real accomplishments very soon because his fairy tale Presidency vacation will be ending soon.

  • Harry

    At 52, the President has to marry someone 20 years younger, say 32 years old. For his wife to bear 5 children safely she should be less than 40 years of age by the time she gives birth to the last kid.

    Women above 30 years old now need not apply.
