MANILA - Michael Pangilinan, one of the celebrity contestants of the second season of the hit "Your Face Sounds Familiar," admitted on Thursday that he is going to be a father.
The 19-year-old singer confirmed the news with his talent manager, radio host and entertainment columnist Jobert Sucaldito.
"Mayroon siyang nabuntis," Sucaldito told reporters. "Pero ang maganda lang dito is... he [Pangilinan] said na paninindigan niya. Wala eh. You don't lie on a blessing."
Both Pangilinan and Sucaldito refused to reveal the woman's name, citing privacy. The Harana member, however, stressed that he remains friends with the mother of his first child.
"Sobrang proud ako na magiging dad na ako," shared Pangilinan. "Noong una kong nalaman na nabuntis, wala ibang pumasok sa isip ko kung hindi itutuloy ko 'yan. Mawala na lahat itutuloy ko iyan."
"Excited na ako kung ano 'yung magiging itsura ng anak ko, 'yung magiging daddy na ako, excited na akong bumili ng gamit niya," he added.
The new season of "Your Face Sounds Familiar" will begin airing on September 12.
Aside from Pangilinan, the other celebrity contestants are Sam Concepcion, KZ Tandingan, Myrtle Sarros, Kakai Bautista, Kean Cipriano, Denise Laurel, Michael Pangilinan and Eric Nicolas.
