Sofia Andres has opened up for the very first time about how her parents reacted to her pregnancy with Baby Zoe Natalia.
Speaking to Toni Gonzaga in the July 19 episode of “I Feel U,” the actress revealed that the first person she told within her family was her sister.
“‘Yung sister ko muna [‘yung sinabihan ko]. I'm scared with my parents kasi sobrang strict nila, eh,” she admitted.
“Umiyak po siya ate kasi siyempre kinabahan siya pero happy din siya at the same time,” she said. “Sinamahan niya ako sa doctor to get my ultrasound photo tapos when we got home pinakita ko 'yung ultrasound photo ko to my parents.”
Her parents’ reactions were different when she finally broke the news.
“My mom cried while my dad was completely chill compared to my mom. Sabi niya, ‘Paano ‘yan? Asan si Daniel? Kumusta ba kayong dalawa?’ ‘Yun po ‘yung unang tanong,” she said.
Turning a bit emotional, Sofia said that she couldn’t have asked for better parents even with their strictness.
“I'm grateful for my family, ate. Sobrang nagpapasalamat ako na meron akong katulad nila sa life ko,” she said.
“My parents are so strict talaga and I understand na why they did that to me. Kasi siyempre 'pag babae ‘yung anak, talagang you'll do everything para protektahan ka. But I said sorry naman to them for what happened kasi hindi naman din sinasadya. They said naiintindihan naman nila and blessing din naman yung bata,” she added.
Sofia now fully understands why her parents had been that way when she was growing up.
“For me okay din naman 'yun, the fact na na-forgive nila na ‘yung nagawa ko. At least now I understand kung bakit sila ganoon. Dati galit na galit ako sa kanila, rebelde ako and all that but now I really appreciate everything kung gaano nila ako kamahal. And now I'm giving it back,” she enthused.
Sofia first announced that she has a daughter with boyfriend Daniel Miranda last June, in celebration of Father’s Day.
