As public figures, celebrities have bigger roles behind the camera than what is seen on TV. Most of them try to hide the more personal aspects of their life. But something as controversial as an unexpected pregnancy will surely make it to showbiz news headlines.
Here are some of the most controversial ones we've had in the last few years:
1. Andi Eigenmann
In a drama that would unfold for over five years, Andi Eigenmann named former boyfriend Albie Casiño as the father of her child when she got pregnant in 2011 at the age of 21.
Three years after the child, Ellie, was born, Albie denied Andi's accusation and even challenged her to a paternity test which she declined.
Actor Jake Ejercito finally confirmed in 2016, that he is the father of Andi's child, Ellie. They now live together as a family.
2. Jennylyn Mercado
Starstruck Grand Winner Jennylyn Mercado announced that she was pregnant with ex-boyfriend Patrick Garcia in 2008.
The unexpected pregnancy took a toll on her career as she went on a hiatus just as her star was beginning to shine.
But Jennylyn came back strong and worked her way back into showbiz while raising Alex Jazz as a single mom.
3. Angelu de Leon
TGIS fans will remember what they felt when news broke out that Angelu de Leon was pregnant, not with love team partner, Bobby Andrews, but with another TGIS co-star Joko Diaz.
Joko and Angelu finally called it quits. Her daughter, Nicole, now 18, has found a father in Angelu's husband, Lorenzo Rivera.
4. Bettina Carlos
Bettina also got pregnant in 2011 but has kept mum about the identity of the father.
"I try to avoid talking about his identity because he doesn’t play the role of a father to my daughter anyway," she said.
Her daughter Gummy is now turning six and Bettina is proud to have raised her as a single mom.
5. Sarah Lahbati
Lovers Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez played it casual when they announced they're having a baby in the reality show, "It Takes Gutz to be A Gutierrez".
