MANILA, Philippines - Television host Tintin Bersola said that she and her husband broadcast journalist Julius Babao are open to the idea of letting their daughter Antonia take part in the showbiz industry.

“Si Antonia, oo, gusto niya mag-artista,” Bersola told “Showbiz News Ngayon” on Tuesday.

In order to show support to their eldest offspring, Bersola said they once tried to make Antonia’s showbiz dream come true.

Bersola said, “Once, tinawagan namin talaga si Direk Malou Sevilla. Sinabi namin na kung meron lang ano eksena na extra lang siya (Antonia), kahit walang dialogue, kasama lang ni Xyriel (Manabat) para lang matahimik at ma-experience niya.”

When asked whether she's willing to let Antonia take on showbiz as a full-time career at this point in time, on the other hand, Bersola immediately replied with a firm "no."

“Hindi pa. Hindi pa namin siya pag-aartistahin. Commercials lang,” she said.
