Showbiz Central, GMA-7's Sunday showbiz talk show, reported last week that young actress Vanna Garcia already gave birth to a baby boy. One week after the news came out, the rumored mother broke her silence.
Showbiz Central was able to interview Vanna herself during the birthday party of Viva Hot Babe JC Parker. She explained the story behind the secret of her pregnancy and giving birth.
"No, because it's something that we want to keep private muna," Vanna said. "The Dad [father of her child] and the family, they're very private people. And I respect their decision that they want to keep it [her pregnancy] muna."
Vanna added, "Kaya lang, it came out already. Might as well talk about it. I never denied my baby nor admit at that moment. Why would I deny such a cute baby, di ba? Siyempre, giving birth is such a big, fulfilling thing in my life. It really changed my life. All my priorities are all different."
Vanna didn't want to show her baby boy to Showbiz Central, but readily gave out details about him.
"Actually, he's three weeks old na. He's a small baby but he's very healthy. Right now naman, hands-on ako sa kanya. I've been taking care of him since he was born with the help of my Mom, of course," the 20-year-old mother narrated.
What about the baby's father?
"He's very stable," Vanna said. "He's a successful businessman and he's a very, very supportive father. He's a very good guy."
Vanna was quick to add that she and the father of her child are "boyfriend and girlfriend" right now. When asked about tying the knot, Vanna said that it's still a work in progress.
"Wedding? We talked about it, pero we're taking it one step at a time," she said.
Vanna is still willing to go back to show business and will accept more mature but not sexy roles. She is also going back to school and will be studying interior design.
Vanna started her career as a child actress, appearing mostly in Viva Films-produced projects.
