Gaile Francesca, the alleged daughter of the late Francis Magalona with former flight attendant Abegail Rait, said she hopes the Magalona siblings will accept her as their sister, stressing that she has no “bad intentions” in revealing herself to the public.

Francesca spoke about this during her interview with broadcast journalist Julius Babao for the latter’s YouTube vlog last Oct. 21.


“Sabi ng mom mo, open naman siya in the event na i-invite ka ng iba mong sisters and brothers na magkita-kita kayo. Ikaw, anong masasabi do’n kung dumating ‘yung punto na ‘yon? [Are you] willing to meet with them?” Babao asked, to which the 15-year-old kid briefly answered, “Yes po.”


(Your mom said that she is open to the idea of you meeting your other sisters and brothers. What are your thoughts on that? Are you willing to meet with them?; Yes, I am.)

When asked to share her message to the Magalona siblings, Francesca said, “I want to tell them that—I hope that you accept me. I don’t have any bad intentions po.”

Francesca also disclosed that going public with her identity was something she really wanted to do. She further noted that despite the “mixed emotions” after her revelation, she has been doing well and that she has been talking to Francis through prayers.

“I pray to talk to him… I do [feel his presence].. ‘Yung puso ko parang—hindi ko po ma-explain,” she said. (My heart feels like—I cannot explain it.)

At the latter part of the interview, Francesca said she believes that the public should hear the fuller version of her “mom’s side of the story” as it might help in making them understand the mother and daughter’s situation.

“I want to tell my mom to stay strong and to [not] mind the comments, kasi po ‘di po nila alam ang buong kuwento (because they don’t know the whole story). And so, for that, ang mga tao (a lot of people) keep bashing her,” Francesca told Babao.


Francis’ wife, Pia Arroyo-Magalona, as well as their children have yet to publicly comment on the matter, although some netizens speculate that Frank and Maxene had alluded to the issue through their recent social media activities.
