8 Famous Pinoy Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Adopted

8 Famous Pinoy Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Adopted

[mashshare]

Here is a list of Philippine celebrities who have been raised by adoptive parents:

Jennylyn Mercado

Singer-actress Jennylyn Mercado was only six months old when she was abandoned by her real parents. She was single-handedly raised by her adoptive mom, Mommy Lydia, who claimed to be a distant relative of the actress’ biological mother.

Mercado has since reconnected with her biological parents, Noli Pineda and Jinkee, on separate occasions.

Vicki Belo

Popular entrepreneur Vicki Belo had been teased as a child that the reason she was given away was because she was fat and ugly. This became the foundation of her goal to build a dermatology and beauty clinic enterprise.

Belo was raised as an only child of her adoptive parents, Enrique Belo and Nena Gonzales, with the latter being the sister of her biological mother.

She is actually the niece of celebrated politician Ninoy Aquino, being the daughter of the late senator’s first cousin, Augusto Cancio with Victoria Gonzales.

Ai-ai delas Alas

Comedienne and blockbuster film actress Ai-ai delas Alas was given up for adoption out of poverty and because of the separation of her parents.

It was never hidden from delas Alas that she was adopted by her unmarried aunt, Justa delas Alas.

She is the natural-born daughter of deceased parents, Rosendo delas Alas and Gregoria Hernandez.

Angelica Panganiban

Child actress and comedienne Angelica Panganiban always had a question at the back of her mind why she does not look like her siblings or parents. The beloved actress from the hit romantic film ‘That Thing Called Tadhana’ had a hunch that maybe she was adopted but only got the confirmation back in 2010.

Panganiban’s questions were answered by her adoptive mom, Melania Panganiban. Mrs. Panganiban had all the photos and details the actress wanted to know about her real identity.

The ‘Playhouse’ actress originally had no interest in looking for her biological parents. However, when she found out that her biological mother had passed away, she made an effort to find her real father. Soon after, she met her real dad, Mark Charlson, for the first time.

Lotlot de Leon

A famous actress of the 80s, Lotlot de Leon knew early on that she was adopted; being continually called “ampon ni Nora” by those who flock her.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BrmBtlghpsP/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

It was through Nora Aunor’s mother that Lotlot got adopted by the Superstar and her former husband Christopher de Leon.

Lotlot de Leon’s biological parents are Donald Olson and Eva Rodriguez.

Mark Herras

According to television and film actor Mark Herras, he and his mom were abandoned by his father when he was barely five years old.

He was never ashamed of his gay foster parents, Herminigildo “Papa Pim” Santos and Daddy Jun Herras. Both have sadly passed on in 2016 and 2014, respectively.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BrxfoHtHZBt/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Herras’ biological mom, Jasmin Santos, has also passed away in 2016.

Angeline Quinto

Talented singer Angeline Quinto was given to her aunt for adoption following an abusive relationship her mother had with her father.

It was her aunt Sylvia “Mama Bob” Quinto who convinced Angeline’s mom not to push through with abortion and volunteered to raise the singer-actress as her own.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BsWj2uBFdod/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Angeline was born as the only daughter of Pop Quiros and Rosemarie Mabao.

I always knew I was a star.
And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me. -Freddie Mercury

Stars were just like ordinary people before they became famous. Some of them already had a share in the limelight even before making a name. Some were already stars in the making, and some were struggling for their star to shine bright.

Let’s see how some of the Filipino celebrities look like before they became famous. Did most of them already have star quality before they shone bright in the Philippine entertainment industry, or did they only shine after years of hard work?

Take a look at some of the most famous stars in the past and today and look back at how they started.

Here are some Pinoy celebrities before they became famous stars:

Dolphy

Before Dolphy became the “King of Comedy”, he was a theater performer and an extra in may films.

MOVIE REVIEW: Quantum Films’ “English Only Please”

MOVIE REVIEW: Quantum Films’ “English Only Please”

[mashshare]

Quantum Films’ “English Only Please” would hardly fit in my list of memorable local rom-coms but it is sufficient.

The leads Derek Ramsay and Jennylyn Mercado have sufficient chemistry.

Jennylyn is sufficently endearing in playing her character. She is radiant in some sequences. Derek’s character would have been perfectly played by Sam Milby. There are times I cringe at his character’s attempt to spew Tagalog with an accent.

I believe this movie can be funnier and more interesting but for its random moments of kilig and quiet yet effective attempts to inject humor.

English 0a

This flick is a 7/10.
