Karla Estrada breaks down recalling how her father did not know she was born


112316-KarlaEstrada_PUSH.jpgCelebrating her birthday on her morning talk show Magandang Buhay, the audience got to know more about ‘Momshie’ Karla Estrada as her friends and siblings gave testimonials about her on the show. 

Talking about her own life struggles and lessons learned, Karla opened up about her mother. Without detailing what happened, Karla said that since the day that she forgave her mother, blessings started to pour into her life. “I’m talking about thirty years ago. Siyempre ‘nung bata ako, I wasn’t properly guided na dapat hindi ka nagagalit sa nanay mo kasi kahit ano mang pagkakamali mo, magulang mo sila so ‘nung isang taong nagsabi sa akin niyan, tinanggap ko. Sabi ko sige tatanggapin ko lahat and then sinuportahan ko ang nanay ko. Hindi ko siya pinabayaan hanggang ngayon at nakita ko, hindi lang ang nanay ko, sampu ng mga kapatid ko, sampu ng bente kong mga pamangkin, ano,” she said.

Karla then became emotional as she opened up about her father who did not know that she had been born.

“I was 18 (years old), kinailangan niyang makita ‘yung picture ko para maniwala. Sinabi niya sa akin, ‘Pasensya ka na, anak, kasi hindi ko alam na nabuhay ka, eh.’

Nang hinanap ko ang tatay ko, ‘yun ang sinabi niya sa akin. Ang sakit no’n. Napakasakit kasi sabi ko, ang tagal kong nangulila sa ama, hindi ko alam na ang alam pala ng ama ko, eh hindi ako sinilang, patay ako ng pinanganak,” she added. 

Nonetheless, Karla said that she feels very happy that her American father accepted her. “Sabi ko, okay lang. Ngayon naman alam niyang buhay ako at para kaming, carbon copy ko kasi siya so tuwang-tuwa siya. Kung ano ‘yung ligaya niya na nalaman niyang buhay ako, mas higit pa do’n ‘yung ligaya ko nang nalaman kong tanggap ako ng tatay ko… Sobrang thankful ako na tanggap ako ng tatay ko at alam na alam ko na mahal na mahal niya ako.”

Giving a message to her father, Karla said that no matter what happened, he is the reason why she has beautiful kids today. “Pati ugali mo, well, kayo ni mama, ‘yung pagiging generous. So, dad, thank you very much. Anytime na uuwi kayo rito, bukas ang bahay ko, alam mo ‘yan. Nandito lang ako, handa akong yakapin ‘yung pagkakataon na ako naman ang mag-alaga sa’yo. Kahit hindi mo ako naalagaan, maraming salamat na isinilang niyo ako.
