Yes, Daryl Ong is already a father — a proud one at that. 

Not many know about the singer's life before joining "The Voice of the Philippines," and that he has a child with his estranged wife who is living in the US. 

In an interview on "Tonight with Boy Abunda" on Wednesday, Ong talked about the happiness he felt after reuniting with his 9-year-old son, Dwayne, after more than three years. 

He also shared how the reunion happened, saying: "Sinabi ko na lang sa mom niya [his ex] na nandito ako ngayon sa States, may show kami, baka naman after nung almost four years na hindi ko siya nakasama, baka ito puwede mong maibigay iyong chance." 

"Kahit maramdaman lang ng aking anak na may tatay siya na nandiyan pa rin," he added.

Ong was able to see his son again largely due to being a guest performer in Vice Ganda's recent US concert tour. That's why he is indebted to the comedian, whom he admitted to be very close with. 

"Sobrang na-appreciate ko na pinagkakatiwalaan niya ako ng mga bagay na pribado sa kanya," he said.
