Singer Freddie Aguilar, 60, says he’s ready to marry his 16-year-old girlfriend
She’s young enough to be his granddaughter.
The man who sang "Anak" is now in love with a girl who’s young enough to be his daughter or granddaughter.
ABS-CBNNews.com reports that "Aguilar openly admitted that he is in a relationship with a 16-year-old girl shortly after he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 5th Star Awards for Music."
According to the report, Aguilar claimed that he didn’t know how old the young girl was when he started courting her. When he found out, he realized it was already "too late." He said, "Ano pa ang magagawa ko?’ Aatras ka ba noon, eh na-in love na (What could I do? Was I going to back out when I was already in love)?"
The report also noted: "With a 44-year age gap, Aguilar said he and his girlfriend have had to make adjustments for their relationship. He expressed confidence that their age difference won’t become a problem in the long run." Aguilar said the girl’s parents seem to have accepted their relationship.
