Andrea Brillantes explains why she tends to ‘baby talk’

Andrea Brillantes got candid about the reason behind her habit of using a “baby voice” as seen in some of her videos on social media.

In an interview with Karen Davila on the broadcaster’s YouTube channel, the “Lyric and Beat” star shared that it’s “subconscious” for her to switch from her normal voice to baby talk stemming from the effects of her working in showbiz at such an early age.

“Dati litong-lito ako kasi ang aga kong nagdalaga, tapos nung nag-15 [years old] ako parang nagkaroon ako ng breakdown na, ‘Hala, 5 years na lang 20 na ako.’ So iyak ako nang iyak ta’s nung nag-15 ako bumalik ulit ako sa pagkabata kasi natakot ako, sabi ko ayoko,” she told Karen.

"Mix po siya, eh. Voice ko talaga siya pero hindi siya 'yung napipili ko subconsciously. Bigla lang siya nagsi-switch kasi nung bata ako, kulang din ako sa pansin. Kasi nga bunso ako, 'di ako lumaki sa parents ko. Baby-baby talaga ako dati-dati pa,” she added.

Andrea said that she tends to “baby talk” around people she’s comfortable with, particularly those that may act as a guiding figure in her life.

She explained, “Pero 'yung pagka-baby voice ko, sometimes good and bad, kasi minsan lalabas siya kapag ibig sabihin noon kumportable ako sa'yo or feeling ko may nakikita akong father figure sa’yo, or kuya figure, ate figure, kasi lumaki din ako sa broken family so wala akong masyadong father figure talaga. Tapos maaga din namatay 'yung father figure ko, 'yung lolo ko. So 'pag nakakakita ako ng ganun lumalabas 'yung pagka-baby talk ko kasi feeling ko, ‘Ay, maaalagaan niya ako.’"

“Minsan lumalabas siya kapag masyado akong excited or masyado akong happy. Pero minsan lalabas din siya kung hindi ako kumportable sa tao, kung natatakot ako o nahihiya ako,” she continued. “So hindi ko talaga siya napipili. Minsan mare-realize ko na lang kapag inaasar na ako ng mga tao na doon ako nagbe-baby talk.”

Andrea also clarified that she doesn’t get hurt when people question this habit of hers.

"Kahit ako hindi ko rin maintindihan, eh. Bumabalik at bumabalik talaga siya. Nababago ko lang siya kapag may role ako. Kasi trabaho 'yun at tsaka kailangan. So feeling ko part talaga siya ng childhood ko na nawala,” she answered.
