Vicki Belo, 63, clarified that Baby Scarlet Snow is her "100 hundred percent" biological daughter with Hayden Kho, 35.
"SCARLET SNOW is 100 percent our daughter," said Vicki in a statement aired on MJ Felipe's report on Bandila, Wednesday night, May 18.
This is contrary to the Philippine Star's earlier report that between the celebrity couple, only Hayden is the biological parent of the 14-month-old baby.
Baby Scarlet was conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF), a medical procedure wherein an egg cell is retrieved from the biological mother's ovaries to be fertilized with the sperm cell of the biological father in a laboratory dish.
The fertilized egg is then implanted to the uterus of a surrogate mother who gives birth to the baby.
In the case of the celebrity couple, Vicki revealed that she and Hayden personally met Baby Scarlet's American-Mexican surrogate mother.
“It's not true that we don't know her.
“We visited the family to make sure they were a happy family and ate well.
“We even stayed with them at the fifth month and for one month awaiting Scarlet's birth.”
The unnamed surrogate mom gave birth to Scarlet Snow last March 3, 2015.
Some of Baby Scarlet's celebrity godparents include Anne Curtis and Jodi Sta. Maria, Ogie Alcasid, Kim Atienza, and Dyan Castillejo.
Vicki's daughter Cristalle Henares was also shown in the photos of Baby Scarlet's christening.
