Freddie Aguilar said he plans to marry and have children with his 16-year-old girlfriend. Freddie is 60-years-old and has 6 children. He noted that his third wife was 17 when they became a couple.
"Anak" hitmaker Freddie Aguilar openly admitted that he is in a relationship with a 16-year-old woman. The 60-year-old singer made the confirmation early this week, shortly after he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 5th Star Awards for Music. "'Yung kasama ko, girlfriend... 'Yung [girlfriend ko, ano... 16 lang siya, eh," Aguilar was quoted as saying by entertainment news site Philippine Entertainment Portal in a report published Wednesday. According to Aguilar, he didn't know the woman's age when he started courting her. "Nung malaman ko, sabi ko, 'Andun na, eh. Ano pa ang magagawa ko?' Aatras ka ba noon, eh na-in love na?" he said. The music veteran said he is ready to marry his current girlfriend, but added they wouldn't be allowed to wed at this time considering her age. As for building a new family with his 16-year-old partner, Aguilar, said, "We're talking about having a baby. 'Yun ang pinag-usapan namin. Sabi ko sa kanya, 'Parang ang bata mo pa para magka-baby.' Sabi naman niya, 'Hindi, gusto kong magka-baby, e.' So, we're talking about it."
