Angelica shares Derek said to her that it doesn't matter to their relationship if she's adopted.
After her explosive revelation on The Buzz last Sunday about being an adopted child, Angelica shared more of her joyous experience on meeting her father in the US on SNN. The actress said it was quite challenging for her to speak in fluent English whenever her dad talked to her. "Hindi na nga po ako nakapagshopping dahil tense na tense ako parati. Kung ano na bang English yung susunod ko na gagamitin, kasi ang binaon ko po mga 8,215 words lang (laughs). Eh five days po eh, machika pala yung tatay ko. May tinatanong po siya sa akin na nahirapan akong i-explain, sabi ko, 'lsquo;Ah wait, English overload. Can we pause for a while? I need to reboot my system!" Angelica told host Boy Abunda.
She also revealed how she always wanted to be by her father'rsquo;s side. "Panic ako parati, gusto ko siya makita, asan siya? Gutom na ba siya? Pagod na ba siya? Gusto na ba niya umuwi? Para po akong nagaalalaga ng bata, parehas po kaming takam na takam alagaan yung isa'rsquo;t isa."
On the topic of weddings, Angelica laughingly shared that her father also asked her about a lot of things, especially since she'rsquo;s a star here in the Philippines. "Tinanong po niya ako bago ako umalis, kapag naglakad daw ba siya sa aisle, kelangan din daw ba niya magmake-up? Tapos may mga camera daw ba dun, ipapalabas daw ba? Sabi ko naman, wala pa akong plano tungkol sa coverage. Pero sa make-up meron, medyo oily ka dad (laughs)," she jokingly replied.
Many people were curious of course how her boyfriend, actor Derek Ramsay, reacted to all of these revelations. "Si Derek po yung unang pinagsabihan ko. Pinapatahan ako. Sinabi niya 'lsquo;Ano naman? Wala naman magbabago eh. Anak ka nila, sila ang pamilya mo, yun na yun, tapos ang usapan,'rsquo;" she said, emphasizing that Derek was very supportive all through out.
Angelica went teary-eyed though when asked to relate how she knew through her cousin that she'rsquo;s not really blood-related to them. She said that after she went to the bathroom to look at herself in the mirror, she had so may questions to ask her cousin. "Sabi ko 'lsquo;So hindi niyo ako kamag-anak?'rsquo; Humindi lang siya. 'lsquo;So wala akong pamilya?'rsquo; Sabi niya 'lsquo;Hindi, hindi, pamilya tayo.'rsquo;" The actress could only muster a short message for the family she has known her whole life. "Mahal na mahal ko po sila. At kahit po bali-baliktarin natin ang sitwasyon, sila po yung pamilya ko. Sila lang."
