ABS-CBN actor Piolo Pascual admitted that he and his son Inigo underwent DNA testing to confirm his fatherhood. Inigo was still a baby when the testing was done. Piolo was only 20 year old when her former girlfriend told him about their son.
DNA testing is done to confirm genealogy and ancestry. However, he doesn’t want others to think that he became Inigo’s father because of the DNA result. What matters to him is Inigo is his own flesh and blood.
“He’s already a grown-up and we don’t want people saying it’s because of DNA that I became his father. I’ve always been his father, no doubt about that.” Piolo said
Piolo has been always protective of his 17-year-old son. The 37 year old actor wants Inigo to finish high school first before working full-time in showbiz. It was reported that Iñigo auditioned for a US boy band, finished an indie movie and has appeared in a commercial with Piolo.
