On June 24, 2019, Alden Richards' dad, Richard Faulkerson, took to Twitter to plead with fans to stop spreading rumors about his son. Apparently, some of them have been claiming that Alden, who's 27 years old, is married and already has a child!
Alden's dad wrote, "This is the truth: Wala po akong manugang, walang apo, walang kasal na naganap. Please po. Stop it. Please. Thank you."
It's not the first time Richard defended his son from rumors like this. In August 2017, there were even speculations that Alden's youngest sister, Angel Faulkerson, is actually his daughter. Richard challenged accusers to have him and Angel undergo a paternity test, to prove that he is, in fact, her dad.
No doubt about it: Fan theories can get pretty intense. We stan protective parents!
