On Aquino and Abunda Tonight, Teen Mama ng Manila Kamille Filoteo said she auditioned for Pinoy Big Brother 737 because she wants to help her family and “para rin po sa future namin ni baby.” Kamille wants to become an actress eventually if given the chance.
Kamille got pregnant when she was 15 years old and she admits it’s hard work being a teen mom. She had to stop going to college so she could do modeling jobs. She also had to contend with rumor-mongers and people who judged her but according to Kamille, “hindi ko na na lang po iniintindi ang sinasabi ng ibang tao kasi mas nag-focus na lang ako kay baby.”
When asked how she reacted when she learned that she was pregnant, she said she was shocked and her boyfriend cried. Her parents also got mad, especially her mom who took it hard. “Hindi siya pumapasok sa work, uminom ng gamot, nag-suicide. Dinala siya sa hospital ng kaibigan niya.”
At the tender age of 15, Kamille also didn’t know when she’d gotten pregnant. “Minomonitor po ako nila Tita kasi hindi ako nagkakaron, may hinahanap ako na mga food.”
Kamille and the father of her daughter, who is now 19 years old, are still together and she said he is very supportive. He didn’t object to Kamille becoming one of Kuya’s housemates and letting the world in on their story of teenage pregnancy and young parenthood.
Kamille met him when they were in elementary. Kamille said the reason they are still together and the reason they remain strong is their promise to each other. “Nagusap po kami na kami ang magkakampi dito, na hindi kami magka-away dito. Paninindigan namin ito.”
