In a previous interview, Franco said that they never thought of Ayen getting pregnant again after their last child who is now 3 years old. Having said that, they really considered Baby Lucia as a big blessing for their family.

Franco said he had missed his showbiz career and has plans of going back as an actor, singer, and host.  But for the mean time, he would spend most of his time taking care of Baby Lucia.
