In the wake of Kylie Padilla's confirmation of her pregnancy, Amihan, the character Kylie plays in GMA Network's fantasy telenovela Encantadia, was killed off.
In an interview with PEP, Kylie, 24, said, "I'm not saying I'm not really happy about this. I'm happy."
She then went on to address the people at GMA. "Gusto kong malaman ng mga tao at [ng] GMA na...sorry, napaaga. Pero thank you rin na naintindihan n'yo. And sana suportahan niyo kami, kasi kailangan para sa baby (I just want the people at GMA to know that...sorry, the pregnancy came early. But I still thank you for understanding. I hope you continue to support us, especially because of the baby)," she stated.
Kylie likewise revealed that she had apprehensions about telling her mother, Liezl Sicangco, about her pregnancy.
Kylie related in a 24 Oras segment that she called her mother, who is based in Australia. She revealed, "'Hi, Ma,' tapos naiyak na 'ko; iniisip ko pa lang ang sasabihin ko. Tapos 'yun. 'Ma, I'm pregnant.' Tapos sabi niya, 'Wow, anak, alagaan mo 'yan, ha? Wala kang gagawing you know you might regret later.' Sabi ko, 'Opo,' tapos umiyak na ako sa kanya (I said, 'Hi, Ma,' then I started to cry just thinking about what I was going to say. Then, I said, 'Ma, I'm pregnant.' Then she said, 'Wow, take care of your baby, okay? Don't do anything you might regret later.' I said, 'Yes,' then I cried.)"
Kylie revealed that her dad, actor Robin Padilla, also took the news of her pregnancy well. She and fiancé Aljur Abrenica said they're focusing on their baby first.
