Rita Daniela firm on keeping private the identity of baby’s father
Rita Daniela has spoken up about her choice to celebrate the first trimester of her pregnancy in private, as well as her decision not to share the identity of her non-showbiz boyfriend.
The actress opened up about her pregnancy in an exclusive interview with “24 Oras,” as seen on GMA’s YouTube channel yesterday, June 29.
“[There are] some things in life na ang sarap na ikaw lang muna, ‘yung tini-treasure mo ‘yung blessing na ‘yon at ninanamnam mo ‘yung good news,” she said.
(There are some things in life which are better to keep to yourself first — to treasure the blessings and to cherish the good news.)
Daniela was then asked who the father of her child is. Daniela disclosed that it is her non-showbiz boyfriend but gave no further details about him.
“It’s my decision not to share anything about us or about him to everybody because he’s not a showbiz personality. He’s a private person and our relationship has always been private,” she told Canlas.
Although she admitted that the pregnancy was unplanned, Daniela stressed that it came to her as a blessing because she will now have someone to appease her self-doubts.
“‘Am I enough? Was I good? Was I great?’ That has always been my struggle but this blessing reminded me na (that), ‘No, I won’t feel that anymore,'” she stated. “Because I will have someone that whatever I do — I may fail or not — that someone will see me, and he or she will love me with all of his heart.”
Daniela earlier announced her pregnancy in the GMA variety show “All-Out Sundays.” She said that she did not intend to keep it secret from the public, but she just waited for the perfect time to share “the new blessing” in her life.
Meanwhile, her onscreen love team partner Ken Chan expressed his support on her pregnancy and vowed that he will always be present whenever she needs him. JB
