It all started with a blind item saying a controversial actress who is part of a primetime teleserye is expecting a child with her longtime boyfriend – a singer who started as a grand champion in a singing contest from his former TV network.
The subject of the blind item is Katrina Halili and the boyfriend/father of her child is Kris Lawrence, as confirmed via the former’s admission in an interview by Ricky Lo on GMA-7’s weekly showbiz talk show “Startalk.”
During the interview, the 26-year-old Kapuso Kontrabida star said that she’s three months pregnant and the father of her child is long-time boyfriend and Party Pilipinas mainstay, Kris Lawrence.
“Three months po. Last February ko po nalaman,” she told Ricky.
Katrina sees her pregnancy as a blessing instead of a hindrance to her career which is just recovering lately after it was rocked by the sex-video scandal involving Hayden Kho a couple of years ago.
“Ready na ba akong may ibang taong iisipin? Masaya ako. Blessing ito,” she said.
“Blessing ka and mamahalin kita and gagawin ko ang lahat para maging maganda ang future mo,” was Katrina’s message to her baby.
Katrina decided to take a leave from her primetime teleserye “My Beloved” and spend her pregnancy in her native Palawan for a few months.
