Piolo Pascuals son Iñigo is now one of the most sought after names on the internet


Piolo Pascual was very much surprised when during his birthday celebration on ASAP Rocks, he saw a video of his 13-year-old son I'ntilde;igo singing "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." Piolo told Push.com.ph at the press conference of his upcoming concert entitled Piolo meets the Maestro Ryan Cayabyab that, "Torture yun! Kasi I was really caught [by surprise]. We are all aware that I'm trying to keep him from showbiz, because nag-aaral yung bata [in the US].'nbsp; Ayokong ma-publicize masyado because ayokong ma-divert yung attention niya from education or from school to showbiz. Gustuhin ko man siyang pagalitan, gustuhin ko mang magalit, parang [the video] served its purpose.'nbsp; That was the biggest birthday gift I got from him."

Piolo explained that he decided for his son to study in the US so the child can enjoy a life away from showbiz. But after the video was shown on ASAP, I'ntilde;igo became one of the most talked about personalities in the social media world.'nbsp; Despite this instant fame, Piolo remained firm on his decision not to allow his son to enter showbiz while he is studying. "I hope it doesn't go to his head.'nbsp; I hope na huwag niyang isipin na way niya yun o maging door niya yun sa pagpasok sa showbiz at kalimutan ang pag-aaral. Because I really insist na tapusin pa rin yung pag-aaral bago mag-showbiz."

The actor/singer is not even talking to his son about what happened so as not to give the child an idea that he is now famous.'nbsp; "Ayokong i-entertain yung thought. Ayokong isipin niya na, just because of what he did, na siyempre maraming magiging interesado, maraming mga gustong magtanong about him. I just don't want him corrupted. I just don't want him to think of things other than education. Gusto ko talaga na i-enjoy niya yung pagkabata niya, more than anything. Kaya hindi namin pinag-uusapan."

The main reason the public instantly became interested in I'ntilde;igo was because of his good looks that he seemed to have inherited from his father. Now that the world has seen what I'ntilde;igo looks like, Piolo joked about having proven to the world that his son really does exist. "Pakisabi na lang kay Tito Alfie (Lorenzo) na totoo yung anak ko... joke!"'nbsp; Veteran showbiz writer and talent manager Alfie Lorenzo had long been doubtful about Piolo fathering a child.'nbsp; Piolo then commented, "Kasi marami ang nagsasabi namake-believe or anything. But I don't have to defend, or parang expose him or anything. I respect people's opinion. So, whatever my son did, kayo na ang bahala."
