LOOK: Baeby Baste to go home after dengue hospitalization
Sebastian Benedict “Baeby Baste” Granfon Arumpac, the youngest host of noontime TV show “Eat Bulaga”, is scheduled to be discharged from the hospital after being treated for dengue.
The official Instagram page of Baeby Baste, managed by his parents, Papa Sol and Mama Shiela, shared a photo of the young host smiling while sitting on his hospital bed yesterday, July 17. Baeby Baste’s parents broke the news of his hospital discharge using the knock-knock-styled joke “Eat Bulaga” is known for.
“Ano talaga ang totoong pangalan ni Ana? (What is the real name of Ana?)” wrote the young host’s parents. “Edi UWI ANA.” (A play on the Filipino words “uwian na” which means “[it’s] time to go home.”)

Eto na po ang 1st joke ko na walang EXPLANATIONS!!!!! Baste: Ano talaga ang totoong pangalan ni Ana?? Dabarkads: ano??!!! Baste: Edi UWI ANA😂😂😂😂 DAGHANG SALAMAT PO LORD, PADRE PIO, EAT BULAGA AT SA ATONG MGA DABARKADS NA NAGPRAY PO SA AMIN NI SAMSAM. NARINIG PO NI LORD YUNG MGA DASAL NINYO, NATIN. From the bottom of my heart and namamagang liver and spleen, DAGHANG SALAMAT PO KANINYONG TANAN❤️🙏🏻❤️
Baeby Baste was hospitalized on July 10. His younger brother, Samsam, who also had high fever around the time the young host was diagnosed with dengue, was also hospitalized not long after.
Baeby Baste’s parents were shocked when the young host experienced dengue complications. A video of a sleeping Baeby Baste was shared by the page last Friday, July 13. Singing “Anima Christi”, a Catholic prayer to Jesus Christ, Mama Shiela was seen massaging the young host’s stomach using Padre Pio’s relic.
His parents said that Baeby Baste was in pain because alongside dengue, he was also experiencing a swelling of his liver and spleen: “It helps a lot sa pain ng tummy ni [B]aste dahil sa complications… namaga po yung liver and spleen [n’ya].”
([Rubbing a Padre Pio token on the young host’s stomach] helps a lot in Baste’s tummy pain; because of complications, his liver and spleen swelled up.)

“Hear me Jesus, hide me in Thy wounds that I may never leave Thy side From all the evil that surrounds me defend me And when the call of death arrives bid me come to thee that I may praise thee with Thy saints forever.” Celebrated the Birthday Mass of Fr. Jeff yesterday and I’m so blessed and grateful and honored basta ibang feeling nung sinabi niyang pwede kong dalhin yung relic ni Padre Pio🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 It helps a lot sa pain ng tummy ni baste dahil sa complications… namaga po yung liver and spleen nya. Pls continue to pray for Baste and Samsam, its a great help po for us. My prayers also po sa lahat ng may sakit ngayon, with Gods healing Power and the intercession of Padre Pio, gagaling po ang lahat ng may sakit. Thank you po Fr. Jeff for strenghtening my faith towards Lord🙏🏻
When Baeby Baste and Samsam were hospitalized, they did not feel too lonely because the young host’s “Eat Bulaga” co-hosts took the time to visit him and his younger brother. Maine Mendoza also previously visited, while Alden Richards gave a video call.
