It was Maria Cerqueira Gomes who asked this Wednesday Manuel Luís Goucha during a conversation with actor Alexandre Lencastre, if he is still available to be a father.
The presenter of "Você na TV", who once considered Teresa Guilherme to adopt a child, said no. And clarified that at this stage of life, no longer think about it. At the age of 64 and married to Rui Oliveira, the presenter explained that he could not guarantee a future for a child.
"I think it's a big responsibility and we have no life," he said. "I think to be a child at this stage … what is the future? How old should I live? It's an obstacle, but it also has to do with accessibility. It's a big responsibility," he said.
Gouka's husband had already taken up the case. "People who have good background and good nature will make good parents. Each of us must have the ability to transfer good values to the child so that he is a full citizen. And then I think Manuel Luis would give a good father and would fulfill this function in the best way, because throughout public life this is visible, "he said.
