Rita Gaviola confirmed speculations surrounding her motherhood a day after she took to social media to share photos of herself with her child and her partner.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday afternoon, August 9, Rita shared close-up photos of her child.
Rita said she doesn’t care whether people throw hurtful words at her as long as they leave her child alone.
“Sabihan ninyo lang ako masasakit na salita kahit laitin niyo ako okay lang sa akin basta wag ninyo lang idamay ang anak ko. Tatanggapin ko lahat ng masasakit wag lang anak ko,” she wrote in the caption.
Rita went on to say that she’s proud that she didn’t have her child aborted for the sake of keeping her name in the limelight.
“Pero isa lang masasabi ko na proud ako kasi hindi ko pinalaglag ang baby dahil lang sa kasikatan,” she said.
Meanwhile, some netizens praised Rita while others told her to protect her child by limiting her posts on social media.
“Don’t mind them. Whatever you do may masasabi talaga yung tao. As long as the baby is well taken care of and wala kayong ina-agrabyadong tao then that’s fine. Best of everything to you as you experience this amazing gift of motherhood!” one netizen wrote.
“I know proud ka ke Baby, sino ba naman hindi pag super cutie.. but limit sharing his/her photos in socmed for his/her protection,” another netizen wrote.
Rita started her showbiz journey after joining as one of the teen housemates of Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7. Just this year, she joined It’s Showtime’s Sexy Babe segment.
