Bugoy Cariño opens up about decision to have child with EJ Laure almost aborted; defends partner against critics

Bugoy Cariño admitted he and his partner EJ Laure almost had their child aborted after finding out the latter was pregnant with their first child. 

 

 

In an interview with broadcast journalist Karen Davila, Bugoy opened up about how his fears of putting his showbiz career at risk almost led him to the decision of having his first child with EJ get aborted. 

At the time of EJ’s pregnancy, Bugoy was only 16 while EJ, then 21 years old, was playing volleyball for the University of Santo Tomas (UST) Tigresses. 

“Una po talaga ang desisyon namin ipalaglag na lang yung baby. Parang bata pa ko nun, hindi ko alam na buhay pala yung mawawala kapag ipinalaglag mo or something,” he said.

Bugoy said he was supporting his family at that time, making it hard for him to just let go of his life then and become a dad. 

“Sabi ko sarili ko, o sige para lang mabalik yung career ko. Alang-alang sa family ko para makatulong ako talaga nang sobra at para mabalik yung mga shows na ibinigay sakin. Yung tiwala sa'kin ng ABS. Sige, ipalaglag na lang,” he remarked. 

But Bugoy eventually realized that he would commit sin should he push through with his decision to go with abortion. 

“Kapag pinalaglag ko pala ito, parang itong yung isa sa pinakamalaking kasalanan na magagawa ko sa buhay ko,” he said. 

After a conversation he had with his father, he finally had the courage to come up with a decision that changed his life forever. 

“‘Bunso, pag yan pinalaglag mo ang bata, huwag mo na kong tawaging tatay. Pag pinalaglag mo yan, di ka tunay na lalaki,’” he said. 

 

 

EJ eventually agreed to keep the child as well, forcing her to temporarily stop playing volleyball. 

Meanwhile, Bugoy also defended his partner from critics who called out the latter for having a relationship with him despite being a minor.

“Hindi ako masisisi ng tao. Hindi masisisi si EJ ng mga tao kung bakit di pigilan ang sarili. Ako po talaga ang may gusto kay EJ. So, sabi ko sa kanya, 'wag mo na pansinin. Pagdating naman ng panahon wala na yan eh. Magbabago din isip nila,” he said. 

In the said vlog, he also shared that he put up a water station as well as did online selling to support his child.
