Last May, a video of Andrea Brillantes talking like a baby at a store in Siargao went viral on social media. Andrea finally spoke up about the controversial issue over the weekend, claiming that she does ‘baby talk’ unconsciously. 

“‘Yung pag-baby talk ko na laging nag-te-trending, voice ko talaga siya. Pero hindi siya ‘yung napipili ko subconsciously,” she clarified in an interview with Karen Davila

Andrea further explained that she sometimes talks in a childish way because she never got to experience a “normal” childhood. Apart from growing up in a broken family, she also joined the showbiz industry at only seven years old to support her family. 

Bigla lang siya nag-si-switch kasi noong bata ako, kulang ako sa pansin. Bunso ako, hindi ako lumaki sa parents ko, baby baby talaga ako, dati pa,” she revealed. “‘Yung pagka-baby voice ko, sometimes good and bad. Kasi minsan lalabas siya kapag kumportable ako sa’yo or feeling ko may nakikita akong father figure sa’yo or kuya figure, ate figure, kasi lumaki rin ako sa broken family. Lumalabas ‘yung pagka-baby talk ko kasi feeling ko ma-aalagaan niya ako.”

Andrea also stressed that she has no control over her baby-like tone, especially when she’s faced with strong emotions. “Minsan lumalabas siya ‘pag masyado akong excited or masyado akong happy. Pero minsan lalabas din siya kapag hindi ako kumportable sa tao, parang natatakot ako o nahihiya ako,” she stated.

Although Andrea regularly gets flak for talking this way, she no longer gets offended when people insult her voice. 

Kahit ako hindi ko rin maintindihan eh. Bumabalik at bumabalik talaga siya, nababago ko lang siya kapag may role ako kasi trabaho ‘yun,” she concluded. “Feeling ko part talaga siya ng childhood ko na nawala.”
