After several weeks of being a blind item in the tabloids, John Wayne Sace finally discloses that his non-showbiz girlfriend is pregnant.

Entertainment Live cited the columns of Aster Amoyo in Pilipino Star Ngayon and Tumbok's Chan-Chan Torres where John Wayne Sace chose to speak regarding his situation.

John Wayne is best known as the youngest son of Vilma Santos and Christopher de Leon in Dekada '70. He also became part of the young boy group "Anime," with Rayver Cruz.

Nineteen-year-old John Wayne relates that his girlfriend, Cheska Villareal, who is older by a year, has been pregnant for five months already. They were friends even before John Wayne started with Star Magic, the talent management arm of ABS-CBN. 

John Wayne also clarifies reports that he and Cheska are hiding or have eloped. He said they simply went to Palawan for a vacation.

"Kamamatay pa lang ng Mommy ko kaya doon na muna kami nag-stay, pero hindi kami nagtago," the teen actor says.

To make his point even clearer, he repeats that he is proud to become a father.
