This Saturday night, Pambansang Bae Alden Richards will have a guest appearance in the comedy show. He will be playing the childhood crush of the only daughter of Barak Otogan (Vic Sotto).

In his interview with Kapuso showbiz reporter Aubrey Carampel last week, Alden talked about his role in Daddy's Gurl.

He said, “Mayroon kaming childhood past dito ni Stacy 'yung character ni Maine (Mendoza). We are very close tapos nagkahiwalay nang matagal tapos naging business partner ako ni Bossing (Vic Sotto) sa isang coffee shop so parang doon mag-i-istart, doon iikot 'yung character ni Aldrich Reyes.”

The Kapuso actor also said that he is very excited to appear in Daddy's Gurl and is looking forward to working with the funny cast of the sitcom.

“Nakaka-excite din naman pagdating ko dito sa set, ang galing kasi isang buong location lang siya nandito lahat.

“Tapos ang gaan lang din ng mga katrabaho.”

Meanwhile, Phenomenal star Maine Mendoza said that this is their way of thanking their fans by fulfilling their wish to see Alden Richards appear in the sitcom.

If you could remember, Alden and Maine last worked together in the Kapuso primetime soap Destined To Be Yours.

“Tsaka ang tagal na rin po nilang nire-request na mag-guest din dito si Alden (Richards) as in first episode pa lang yata nire-request na nila na mag-guest. So ito na 'yun para sa kanila.”

Alden and Maine's last soap was Destined To Be Yours in 2017, but they can be regularly seen in the longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga.
