What if his daughter, who has already gained popularity for being international singer Selena Gomez's lookalike, gets an offer to enter show busi ness?
"I will not stop her po. I will not stop her if she really wants it."
Ogie further shared, "It seems she wants to do some commercial modeling kasi ngayon pa lang, ang dami nang nagooffer sa kanya, eh, even just through her Instagram. Parang she's interested to do that. Sabi ko nga kanina, she already started her blog tapos ito pa, nag-aaral na ng Tagalog. Nakikinig siya sa YouTube ng mga Tagalog na mga kanta tapos minememorize niya. Kilala niya 'yung mga artista rito sa Philippines, kinikilala niya and she watches their films to my complete shock."
He also said that he got surprised that she wanted to come to the Philippines. "It's a big surprise to me 'nun nalaman ko na she wanted to come home," he said, adding that Leila's mother Michelle Van Eimeren is also very supportive of the move.

Dito excited na naibahagi ni James ang kanyang ginagawang all original album na siya mismo ang nag-compose ng mga kanta.
"I am very excited. I wrote all the music. I helped produce all the music. Like I said before, music was my first love so sorry, Nadine, but it was my first love. I am very passionate about it. Almost all the songs are for Nadine, but there’s one song where she’s featured," kuwento ni James.
Dahil naging maganda ang naging simula ng JaDine nitong magtatapos na 2016, naitanong din kay James kung possible ba ang isang solo concert kasunod ng kanyang all original album na mapapakinggan sa 2017.
"Definitely. We’ll see," saad ni James.
Sa pag-explore ng couple sa kanilang mga career, kino-consider din daw si Nadine na gumawa ng kanyang solo album pero kuwento ng dalaga hindi pa niya sigurado ito dahil may mga nauna siyang proyekto.
"Actually yes po pero marami pa po akong uunahin next year so surprise na lang po kung ano yun."
Kuwento pa ni Nadine focus muna sila ni James sa kanilang prime time teleserye na Till I Met You at pagbuo ng album ni James para sa susunod na taon.
"We are focusing pa rin naman po on Till I Met You pero kami, we have plans rin naman as well. Si James, he has his album coming up next year, " pagtatapos ni Nadine.
