Smokey Manaloto is now a father.
The comedian, 44, made the surprising revelation over the weekend, as he introduced his son Kiko with his non-showbiz partner to the public.
Through a TikTok video, Smokey shared clips documenting his journey as a first-time father, from the early weeks of his partner's pregnancy to their son's birth last August 4.
"Sabi nila, 'Wala ka nang pag-asa.' Sabi nila, 'Huli ka na sa byahe!' Akala ko nga, huli na. Hindi pa pala! Ito na 'yung something big na nangyari sa akin!" Smokey said.
