Pia Wurtzbach mentioned in her interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda that she wanted to have a gay child so he can take care of her and be her best friend.
"Not to say na hindi ka aalagaan kung straight iyong anak mo, pero based on my experience, iba mag-alaga iyong beki and gusto kong ma-experience iyong mayroon [anak akong] excited na bihisan ako, ayusan ako, alagaan ako — parang magiging best friend ko... Nai-imagine ko na iyong anak ko magiging best friend ko beki siya."
This immediately drew flak online and the beauty queen-turned-actress immediately apologized.

Some accepted her apology while some were less forgiving and said she should be more sensitive with her statements next time.
