In spite of celebrities being watched 24/7, some of them can still keep things without the public noticing anything. It can be as little as a scar that can be covered by any makeup or as big as a pregnancy that the public would feast upon.
Here are a few celebrities that have children you may not know about in the past:
Phoemela Baranda was 19 and had a busy modeling career when she got pregnant with her daughter, Kim. All her life, Kim thought that Phoemela was her older sister and she only found out about the truth when she was already 11 years old.
Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez
Last 2013, the word got around that Sarah Lahbati was pregnant with her child with Richard Gutierrez. The couple gave no confirmation as they flew to Switzerland. They first showed their son to the public in their reality show ‘It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez’.
Back in 2011, actor Derek Ramsay found out that he has a son named Austin. Austin is his son with estranged wife Mary Christine Jolly.
Marjorie Barretto is the mother of Dani, Julia, Claudia, and Leon. Her eldest is her child with Kier Legaspi. On the other hand, Julia, Claudia at Leon are her children with her second husband, Dennis Padilla.
Aubrey Miles admitted last 2014 that she has a son named Maurie. When asked about the reason on why she kept him as a secret, she answered “Noong time na ‘yun kailangan fresh ka. Mas sisikat ka. Siyempre sa mga endorsements mo gusto nila single ka, hindi ka mom.”
Inigo Pascual was all grown-up when he was introduced to the public by his father, Piolo Pascual. Inigo is currently following his dad’s footsteps as he’s trying his luck in the showbiz.
Last March 16, Liz Uy, a famous celebrity stylist revealed that she has a son named Xavi. In one interview by Preview, she said that “Every time I do anything, I think of Xavi first.”
Ellen Adarna and John Lloyd Cruz
There have been speculations that Ellen Adarna is currently pregnant with her child and the rumored father is the actor John Lloyd Cruz. Although there hasn’t been a confirmation just yet, last June 19, the two were spotted at Chong Hua Hospital in Cebu for an alleged prenatal check-up.

We can now say that it’s the freshest, but even fresher!
Who would have thought that a fruity mint and an ice-blast freshness can really make a good match-up? Yes, that’s right. Not only did Closeup introduced a new look this year, but they are also fueling up with a rush of shocking menthol with Closeup Fresh Attraction toothpaste.
In an intimate launch at the Vask-BGC, the brand that lets you experience mouth freshness like no other finally unravels their newest line with its equally cool ambassador. But, first things first. The guests together with the media tried out an explosive menu made special by Chef Jose Luis Gonzales. It’s too flavorful, leaving our mouth with nasty breath. (Yikes!)
After that mouth-watering food tasting, they let us proceed in the brushing area where we can actually brush our stained mouth with, of course, the all-new Closeup Fresh Attraction.
The new variant comes with two flavors, Oxyrush and Arctic Shock. As most guests preferred a very strong menthol flavor, Oxyrush, which is formulated with a glacier fresh mouthwash and crystal frost, stood out as the crowd favorite. But for someone like me, who prefers the less intense arrive, I liked Arctic Shock more because of its sweet and fruity finish.
Closeup also welcomed the newest addition to their family, Sarah Lahbati. “I find myself turning to the Closeup Fresh Attraction even more these days,” Lahbati revealed. “The Oxyrush flavor, which is my favorite, helps me achieve [everything her work demands her to do],” she added.
Hand in hand, Sarah Lahbati headlines the all-new Closeup product with country’s top beauty and lifestyle blogger, Kryz Uy and her PBB Big Winner boyfriend Slater Young the host. “I love how this keeps me confident, especially when Slater and I travel. Having fresh breath is always a top priority for me,” Kryz shared.
Closeup Fresh Attraction is now available at leading supermarkets and drugstores. What are you waiting for? Try it now!
“When it rains, it pours, I guess so I’m embracing the grind.”
The exact words of Richard Gutierrez talking about his overwhelming transfer to the Kapamilya network. Having offered several projects, Richard is only allowed to talk about his upcoming teleserye and the much-awaited reunion movie with Angel Locsin.
It is earlier reported that Richard and his wife, Sarah Lahbati had already plans of having a new baby. But when asked again in his recent contract signing and press conference, he said,
“We’ll have to maybe delay [it] a little bit. Our main priority right now is of course, this opportunity that was given to me. You know, an opportunity like this doesn’t come very often. I’m not gonna take it for granted. I’m gonna embrace it, enjoy it and work hard for it.”
Not taking anything for granted, Richard admits that his main priority right now is the projects lined up for him. But he believes that everything will fall into its rightful places eventually.
Let’s hope for the success of Richard Gutierrez’ comeback and also for his family!

After showing Sarah Lahbati’s pregnant belly, Baby Zion’s hand and back, here’s now the face of Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez’s fruit of their love which is Baby Zion in the reality show “It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez” on E! Channel Asia. They also shared the photos of baby Zion on photo-sharing social site Instagram for their fans to take a look of their baby.
On the first day of June, on the premiere of the family’s reality TV show on E! Channel Asia, Lahbati and Gutierrez finally revealed the truth about Baby Zion, one big reason why Lahbati flew to Switzerland on January last year in the midst of the issue between the actress and GMA Network executive Anette Gozon-Abrogar.
Here are some of the photos shared by Lahbati and Gutierrez on Instagram:
Looking at Lahbati and Gutierrez’s childhood photos (below), who do you think has the closest resemblance?
Controversial Kapuso actress Sarah Lahbati posted a shocking revelation on Instagram on the first day of June 2014.
Though this is not really a shocking revelation especially to those few who really know the story, it still takes courage especially for come-backing Lahbati to admit Baby Zion. April last year when local new website pep.ph posted an article about Lahbati givig birthon April last year to a baby boy which they named Zion. According to their source an MMS photo of the baby was already sent to the Gutierrez family, during the Annabelle Rama’s congressional campaign in Cebu City.
Lahbati flew to Switzerland on January last year in the midst of the issue between the actress and GMA Networkexecutive Anette Gozon-Abrogar. Lahbati was with her mother during her departure, she denied the pregnancy rumors and stated that she will study in Switzerland. On February this year, Gozon-Abrogar and Lahbati announced to the public their reconciliation after Lahbati’s libel case filed against Abrogar, a top executive at GMA Network, was dismissed by the local court.
Returning Kapuso Sarah Lahbati was warmly welcomed on GMA Network’s Sunday musical-variety show “Sunday All Stars” this afternoon, April 6. It can be remembered that Lahbati had a falling out with her home network on January last year, and reconciled and settled their controversial legal row after both parties arrived at an extra judicial settlement at the Philippine Mediation Center on late February this year.
“It feels good to be back so thank you sa lahat ng sumusuporta pa rin po sa akin,” Lahbati said.
