Dennis Trillo: 'Yes, I’m the father of Carlene’s baby'

September 30, 2007 8:01pm

Actor Dennis Trillo finally admitted fathering a child with 2005 Bb. Pilipinas-World Carlene Aguilar.

In an exclusive interview with Showbiz Central Sunday, Dennis confirmed that his surname was given to a baby boy who was born last September 22 in Los Angeles, California.

“Tingin ko nararapat lang din naman na gamitin yung apelyido ko kasi baby ko naman yun e," he said.

He said he fully accepts the responsibility as the father of the boy adding:

“Sa akin naman wala namang problema iyon e kasi tatanggapin ko naman yun ng buong-buo and responsibility ko yun bilang ama. Kung anumang suporta yung kailangan niya andito naman ako."

He added: “Wala namang problema ‘yun sa akin dahil binata naman ako, nasa tamang edad and kung anuman yung responsibilidad na andyan wala akong balak na talikuran yun. Siyempre haharapin ko lahat yun and sa dami ng blessings na dumadating sa akin gusto kong isipin na itong dumating na ‘to isang malaking blessing ito."

Dennis also explained his denials and reluctant attitude to questions regarding Carlene and her pregnancy: “Nung bago pa umalis si Carlene, meron kaming kasunduan nag-usap kami na…nag-request siya sa akin na gusto niyang manahimik. As much as possible ayaw niyang mabanggit yung pangalan niya sa kahit anong interview kaya ‘yun ‘yung mga ginagawa ko kapag ini-interview ako bilang respect dahil nagpunta siya sa Amerika para manahimik, di ba?"

He said he thought that Carlene’s denial that he is the father of her baby, in an interview with GMA showbiz reporter, would finally kill the rumors.

“Nung nagkita sila ni Kuya Lhar Santiago sa States nakitang buntis nga siya, itinanggi niyang ako yung ama siyempre akala ko tapos na dun yung issue until lumabas yung balita na buntis nga siya and ako yung ama," he said.

Asked about his relationship with Carlene now, Dennis said they were on the rocks.

“Sa ngayon medyo malabo yung sitwasyon namin dahil naging kumplikado ‘yung mga bagay bagay," he said.

Dennis and Carlene were already in a relationship long before he joined the GMA Network.

“Kami ni Carlene kasi matagal yung pinagsamahan namin. Matagal ko siyang naging girlfriend. Siguro mga four o mga five (years) bago pa ako pumasok ng GMA girlfriend ko na siya. Although ngayon medyo hirap yung communication naming, bihira na lang kami makapag-usap," he said.

Dennis added he is also willing to talk with Carlene and her parents to settle things for his baby.

“Willing naman ako makipag-ayos sa kanila or sa parents niya para maayos kung anuman yung dapat ayusin para siyempre dun sa bata. Siyempre hindi ko yun pababayaan anak ko yun e," he said.

He also asked his fans to continue their support for him.

“Gusto kong iparating sa inyong lahat na sana wag pa rin kayong magsasawang sumuporta. Gagawin ko pa rin lahat para mapagbuti ‘yung trabaho ko para kahit may mga issue na ganito ay patuloy pa rin yung suporta ninyo sa akin dahil mahal ko itong trabahong ko at mahal ko yung mga taong nakaka-appreciate sa akin kaya keep the faith."

Dennis said he felt relieved after making the admission.

“Pakiramdam ko mas magkakaroon ako ng peace of mind dahil …kasi hindi ko naman matatago yun habambuhay dahil talagang dumarating sa parte ng isang tao ‘yung ganun nagkakaroon ng anak , parte ng buhay yun e, so yun yung inevitable sa isang buhay," he said. - GMANews.TV
