Fabio Ide Tries His Best To Be A Good Dad To His Love Child, Now On With Bianca Manalo

FABIO IDE wants to thank GMA-7 for giving him his biggest break as the leading man of Ken Chan in the transerye (for transgender), “Destiny Rose”, that starts airing on Monday replacing “Healing Hearts”. He has resolved to live in the Philippines for good because he has a daughter here. He and the mom, Denise Oca (daughter of actress Melissa Mendez), are no longer together but they’re in good terms for the sake of their baby girl who Fabio is financially supporting.

“My daughter is so beautifully and I try to be a good father. My career and the businesses I put up are doing well, so thank God, life is good,” he says.

He had another non-showbiz girlfriend at the time he impregnated Denise but they’ve since called it quits. He’s now playing beautiful music with former Bb. Pilipinas Bianca Manalo, who’s now in the soap “On the Wings of Love” on ABS. How did they become close? “We did a show abroad, sa Dubai. Napag-usapan namin ang mga ex namin. Then we went to Bali as a big group. It was there we became closer and when we got back to Manila and she went with me to Cebu for an affair I attended there. I eventually realized that I’m in love with her at naging official girlfriend ko na siya.”

What does he think of Ken Chan as “Destiny Rose”? “He’s very good, very dedicated to his craft. Credible siya as a transwoman. I play Gabriel Antonioni, his Fil-Italian penpal. I’ll make his life colorful as I will become his one true love after he became a transwoman. We’ve had a sensuality workshop para hindi kami maging embarrassed in our intimate scenes together. Okay naman. Pero wala raw kaming kissing scenes kasi afternoon soap ito.”
