Brave father or cheater? Netizens react to Mark Herras’ fathering a child
MANILA, Philippines — Twenty-seven-year-old actor Mark Herras’ announcement that he is the father of a baby girl drew mixed reactions from both his fans and critics on Twitter.
Herras’ fans used the hashtag #ProudOfYouMark to express their support for the young celebrity father and his three-month-old daughter named Ada.
“Sa lahat nang nasaktan ko, kasama na ‘dun ang mga fans, marami akong naging kasalanan, pero ang masasabi ko, hindi kasalanan si Ada,” Herras said. He announced his fatherhood in an interview with celebrity talk show “Startalk” on Sunday.
The actor did not say who the mother is, but a report pointed at Herras’ senior handler who is five years older than him.
But not all netizens were pleased. Others criticized Herras for cheating on his old flame Ynna Asistio, who was his girlfriend when the baby was conceived.
