Jeric Raval finally addressed ongoing speculations about his daughter AJ Raval supposedly being pregnant.
He denied it in a recent interview with Ogie Diaz.
According to the action star, he actually called his daughter to ferret out the truth.
And AJ denied it.
Jeric shared, “Tinanong ko siya kung ano ‘yun, ang sabi niya, e, hindi raw totoo ang kuwento, pagod na pagod na raw siyang sagutin ‘yun dahil ang tagal na siyang sinasabihang buntis."
He added, “Nasa shooting siya nu’ng nakausap ko, may tinatapos siyang movie sa Viva, bakit siya nagsu-shooting kung buntis siya?"
Then again, he has no problem if, in the end, AJ is actually pregnant.
He said, “E, di maganda kung buntis nga siya! At least, hindi pala siya baog."
As if addressing those insisting on fanning the issue, he said, "Bakit ginagawang problema ‘yun? Ang masama, e, 'yung mabuntis ka at kabuwanan mo na, pero hindi pa rin manganak. Problema 'yun!”
Jeric also tackled whispers about his daughter already being a mother prior to her entering showbiz.
Not true at all, said Jeric.
He maintained the issue stemmed simply from AJ being sighted with her nephews and nieces.
While ready to talk about AJ, he is mum on the controversial Vanessa Raval.
Asked pointblank: "Anak mo ba si Vanessa?"
Jeric replied: "Let's not talk about her na lang."
