In an episode of the Kapamilya lifestyle magazine show “Rated K,” Hashtags member, John Lucas finally reveals the identity of his wife and child. Jon shared that he is happily married to “It’s Showtime” dancer Shy Feras since October 25, 2017. They now have an eight-month-old baby named Brycen Christian.
Jon said that it was a huge relief for him to be able to finally talk about his wife and child to the public. “Sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam. Parang nabunutan ka ng tinik kasi nagpakatotoo na lang…
“Si baby din dumating sa akin. Gusto ko mag-focus ng pagbigay ng oras sa pamilya,” he said. It was during the first quarter of 2018 when the controversy that two performers of the noontime show were given “indefinite suspension” because of pregnancy rumors.
Co-Hashtags member, Jameson Blake, revealed in an interview that one of them was indeed Jon. Jameson did not share the cause of the suspension. This answers the people’s question regarding Jon’s absence from the lime light. Jon confirmed that it was not really a suspension.
“Hindi naman talaga totally sinuspinde. Pinagbigyan lang nila ako na, ‘Sige, pahinga ka muna. Pag okey na, pag maayos na, saka ka na lang bumalik,’” he said. Jon shared that it was not just because of Shy’s pregnancy that he took an indefinite leave from the show business industry. On September 2017, Jon lost her mother due to a terminal illness.
Because of this, Jon felt like he hit the rock bottom of his life. He temporarily lost his passion and desire for dancing and performing. But his new family gave him the strength that he needed to continue on with his life. After a couple of months, Jon married Shy.
“Kasi nga mabigat, kasi nawalan ako ng nanay ‘tapos nawalan ako ng hanapbuhay. Pero pinakaalam ko na blessing talaga yung pagdating ng [anak ko]. “Yung lungkot na naramdaman ko, mapapalitan pala ng saya.
”Now, Jon was back on track and was given another chance to pursue his career. Jon had the biggest break of his career so far as he stars in the newest romantic-comedy film “Dito Lang Ako” together with Michelle Vito, which started showing last August 8.Meanwhile, Jon and Shy are slowly opening themselves to the public by posting on the social media about the status of their life and relationship. On August 14, Shy posted a photo of her with the caption, “When you’re thankful for what you have, you are always rewarded with more. Try to stay positive & things will get better.
“To which Jon replied with a short and sweet “I love youuu.”
