MANILA – Andre Paras came to the defense of his stepmother Lyxen against bashers, as he penned a sweet birthday message for her on Wednesday.
Paras started off by thanking his stepmother “for being there for me and taking care of me all these years.”
“I’m thankful that we were able to live a private and simple life. I hate how people think they know you and say hurtful and mean things. It makes you wonder how in the world people come up with these negative things yet we live a private life,” he said.
“If you were a bad person who raised me shouldn’t I also have a bad reputation and a bad life? No, that’s because you and dad raised me the way a child should be raised,” he added.
While he enjoys his parents full support in moving out since he’s already 24, Paras said he still chooses to live with them because he does not want to miss waking up to an amazing family.
“No matter what people say against you I’m still here to back you up and protect you. I love you and thank you for being my mom,” he said.
Paras is the son of Benjie Paras with Jackie Forster. The former couple have another son together, Kobe.
