Bettina Carlos Says The Dad Of Her Love Child Has Completely Forsaken Them

BETTINA CARLOS was only 16 when she joined GMA-7 in such shows as “Love to Love” and “Kakabakaba” in 2003. She then moved to ABS-CBN in 2006 doing “Magkano ang Iyong Dangal” and “Wansapanataym”. Then she vanished. It turned out she went back to school, finished college at the Ateneo (major in management), had a love child, a baby girl who’s now two years old and 3 months called Gummy. She and the baby’s dad had a falling out when Gummy was 6 months old.

“I never saw him again,” she says. “Siguro, some things just won’t work. But sana, whatever issues he had with me, sana he set it aside naman for the sake of our daughter kasi gusto ko pa rin namang may makilalang ama si Gummy. But then, kung ayaw niya, di huwag. We are with my family naman so her father figure is my own dad and my two brothers. Dad ang tawag niya sa kanilang lahat. I just love my daughter that I breastfeed her up to now kahit nakakapagsalita na siya. Breast milk daw is the best, so sige, tuloy natin dahil she won’t stop naman feeding from me, e.”

Last year, she returned to acting and back to GMA-7 to do “Temptation of Wife” to support Marian Rivera. Now, she plays Carla Abellana’s best friend since college, a fashion magazine editor.

“I can relate to my role in ‘My Husband’s Lover’ as she’s also a single mom, just like me in real life. Ako ang nag-a-advise kay Carla to go back to college. Kasi she married Tom Rodriguez without finishing her degree. Tapos, against sa kanya yung mother in law niya, si Kuh Ledesma. But her biggest problem is when she meets the architect na gagawa ng bahay nila, si Dennis Trillo, na little did she know, lover pala ng husband niya noong high school days pa nila. So ako ang magiging takbuhan niya rito sa dami ng mga problema niya.”
