She practically resurrected the soft-porn film genre in the Philippines in the 1990s. She was sexy. She was brash. She took off her clothes, mouthed off memorable sound bytes, and took on all the self-appointed moralists offended by her films. She proved she could handle frontwoman duty and even play the drums live onstage with her rock band.
Recently, however, Rosanna "Osang" Roces became a grandmother for the second time. On April 22, her 17-year-old son Onyok Adriano became a father with the birth of Leone Alonso. The mother is Onyok girlfriend of three years, Kara de Asis.
In a special report aired on The Buzz, the still sexy Osang said that she felt a little bit sad at the thought of how time passed so quickly.
"Medyo nakakalungkot sa una. [Naisip ko] baby ko ito dati ah, ngayon...", she told The Buzz.
(I was a bit sad at first. I looked at my son and thought, this used to be my baby before, now he has a baby of his own.)
Onyok told The Buzz a lesson he learned now that he's a parent himself: "Hindi ko na gagawin yung ginawa ko sa magulang ko. Baka gawin sa akin ng anak ko!"
(I'll stop doing the things I put my parents through--my son might do the same things to me!)
According to Osang, her son has promised to wed Karen once he reaches the legal age for marriage.
