Jimmy Gil, a dad again at 70

It’s like learning how to become a dad again, described broadcast journalist Jimmy Gil, as he cares for his ten-month-old daughter, Anna Cristina. 

Gil, 70, said the baby was not exactly planned. He already has five grown-up children from his first marriage. When his first wife passed and he remarried, the topic of having kids was never discussed. 

“It’s unexpected but it’s a welcome surprise, she’s a welcome surprise. Half of it is divine intervention, the other half is Enduranz Capsule for Men,” confessed the host of DZBB’s “Jimmy Gil Live.” 

Jimmy’s youngest daughter took seven years in the making. 

“To be honest, it wasn’t on the agenda...,” he admitted, “My attitude towards food supplement is it helps me keep my overall health not necessarily along the line of baby production.” 

The reason the radio anchor started taking the food supplement was a good friend recommended Enduranz Capsule for Men to him, because he used to get easily tired, sluggish, lethargic, etc. 

“Nanumbalik ang aking sigla at lakas pagka lalake, at ang side effects pa ay nabawasan ang aking katabaan at nagkaroon ako ng mas maraming lean muscle mass,” he said.

He also got encouraging comments from his wife.

“She told me, ‘Jaime, you’re improving’,” Gil related.

The boost in his energy also helps a lot in caring for the baby. Gil said he does his share of nappy changes and caring for the baby. His is the morning shift, as his wife goes to work in the morning and he goes on board at 8 p.m.  

“I was 200 pounds and I felt it,” he recounted. “I didn’t feel weak but I was having a hard time climbing up stairs, I felt sluggish, lethargic. Upon the advice of my doctor, I started brisk walking every day, cut down on my rice intake to half, and took Enduranz Capsule for Men.”

It was a steady slow start for Jimmy as he didn’t immediately notice the effects of his change of lifestyle. This is usually the case with a natural nutritional support for men like Enduranz Capsule for Men, for it has a gradual build up but it also lasts longer. It is this gradual buildup which men must appreciate since it is an assurance that the health supplement is really natural with no side effects. Enduranz Capsule for Men is being exported to the US and other parts of the world.

“I felt the renewed energy as I would walk in the Greenhills area five or six days a week to keep up with my goal of 10,000 steps a day. I did start losing weight as I initially set out to do. And then I also felt that it was helping me with my intimate relationship with my wife.

 “Having an intimate relationship with your partner is one of the cornerstones of a healthy relationship. Together with that is being open to your wife and of course you have to be understanding and patient at times. Those, I think, are the elements to a happy relationship. A very important component in the dynamics of healthy couples is good communication.”

As for having a baby at his age, Jimmy realized that he can still play the role of a doting father.

“I feel I am more knowledgeable now when it comes to the baby. I’d know why she’s crying, whether it’s because she’s hungry or she needs a diaper change, I’d know already. And diaper changing is so easy compared to before,” he concluded.
