BUGOY with partner ENNAJIE & daughterr Scarlet

BUGOY CARINO is best known as the child actor who played Jericho Rosales’ kidnapped son in the award-winning film, “Alagwa”.

He was discovered when he won in ABS-CBN’s Star Circle Quest for Kids and he then became a mainstay in the kiddie show, ‘‘Going Bulilit”.

As a teener, he became a part of Hashtags on “Showtime” and shone as an amazing dancer.

Then he suddenly vanished. The rumor was that at 15, he got a girl preggy and was ousted by ABS-CBN from the group, along with Jon Lucas who also became a dad at an early age. He denied it then.

The mother of his baby is Ennajie Laure, former volleyball captain of the UST team who later joined the Philippine national team.

She also vehemently denied then that she’s infanticipating. Ennajie at 23 is 5 years older than Bugoy, so it’s not surprising that some quarters jokingly called her a cradle-snatcher.

Now, the cat is finally out of the bag as Bugoy has admitted in his social media account that yes, he’s already a father.

He even posted a picture of his partner EJ and their daughter, a cute little girl named Scarlet. He then greeted himself along with the photo: “Happy birthday to me!”

He did this in time for 18th birthday celebration last September 3, which means he’s now of legal age, unlike when the baby was conceived and born when he just a minor. This is what he wrote in his social media account:

“Happy to have a family na mahal na mahal ako. Pagsisikapan ko pong itaguyod ang blessing na ito. Thank you for your unending support and I love you both, Mommy EJ and Baby Scarlet!”

Well, as they say, the truth will set you free. The question now is whether Bugoy can still resume his showbiz career. No doubt he’s cute, a good actor and a great dancer.

But there’s no more “Showtime” so he can’t return to that show. Also, Bugoy is one of those child actors who became vertically challenged when they got older.

Despite this, we wish him all the best for the sake of his family.
