Paolo Ballesteros has always been comfortable in his own skin, and doubly so because his daughter Keira Claire wholly accepts his sexual orientation.

Paolo came out in August 2019 and, according to him, Claire "gets it,"

He said at the presscon of his movie The Panti Sisters last year, "Luckily, my daughter is a bright kid, eme. So, wala nang ano yun, wala nang problema."

Does she ever ask about it?

"Hindi. Hindi na nagtatanong, alam na niya. Alam niya yun," he told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other media people at the presscon.

"Nanonood nga kami ng RuPaul's," referring to RuPaul's Drag Race, an American reality competition television series.

The Eat Bulaga! host said he hasn't fully explainined to Claire the nitty-gritty of being gay, "Siyempre hindi pa, ten years old lang yun ano... "

"Kaysa naman iba pa magpapagalit, so ako na magpapagalit."

Claire has already shown interest in joining showbiz, but Paolo said she should prioritize her studies.

He related, "Gusto niyang mag-artista, e, oo. Kung gusto niya, ngayon nagvi-VTR. Actually nag-audition siya as young Darna, e, kaya lang Inglisera.

"Di marunong mag-Tagalog. Marunong naman mag-Tagalog pero slang.

"Pero ang gusto ko talaga ay mag-aral muna siya.

"Pag bakasyon lang, puwede na siya mag-VTR and stuff, mag-shoot ganyan.

"Pero pag aral, aral."
