A girl who got pregnant when she was 15 years old is one of the housemates of Pinoy Big Brother 737.
Kamille Filoteo is dubbed as Ang Teen Mama ng Manila for being a mother at a tender age of 16 years old.
When she appeared as a guest on Aquino and Abunda Tonuight, she opened up about the hardships of being a teenage mother.
"Sobrang hirap po kasi nag-aaral ako tapos huminto rin ako mag-college kasi nag-start na ako magtrabaho ng modeling."
How did she handle being judged by other people because of her situation?
"Hindi ko na lang po pinapansin kasi mas nakaka-stress po pag iisipan mo. Mas nagfo-focus na lang po ako kay baby," said the mother about her now two-year old baby girl, Aneeka.
What was her reaction when she found out that she would be a eenage mother?
"Nagulat po ako tapos siya [her partner] umiiyak."
Kamille admitted that her parents got mad when they learned about her pregnancy.
Her mother who was working in Osaka, Japan was so affected that she attempted suicide.
"Hindi siya pumapasok sa work, uminom ng gamot, nag-suicide po siya," she disclosed.
The boy who got Kamille pregnant was her classmate whom she met when they were still Elementary students.
How do they keep their relationship strong despite all these challenges?
"Kami nakapag-usap na kami. Kaming dalawa ang magkakampi dito, hindi kami magka-away dito. Ginawa po namin, paninindigan po namin ito," she declared.
Kamille has been in love with Aneeka’s dad, Justin, for four years now but they still don’t live together because Kamille’s mom, though very fond of Aneeka, disapproves of Justin.
Now 18 years old, the young girl revealed, "Kaya po kami hindi pinagsasama ni Mama [under one roof] kasi baka raw po masundan."
Despite that, Kamille and Aneeka still get to spend a lot of time with Justin.
Why did Kamille join PBB 737?
"Para po makatulong sa family ko saka sa future namin ni baby."
Pinoy Big Brother 737 will start airing this Saturday, June 20.
