KD Estrada recently visited the Pinoy Big Brother house with actress and fellow housemate Alexa Ilacad, one of his closest friends inside the PBB house. The two posed with the iconic house as their backdrop and uploaded their snapshots on IG, accompanied by captions about their gratitude to fans and loved ones who gave them unconditional support.
KD began by expressing that he had no regrets about entering the PBB house. He wrote, “Words can't explain what a ride this has been. But I can definitely say that I have no regrets, because even on the bad days I learned something valuable that I will always carry.”
He also gave a reassuring message to people battling mental health problems like him. KD said, “To everyone out there going through the same thing as me, I want to say that I'm proud of you and you deserve all the good things coming your way, I know that it seems hard and the road looks unclear, but I promise that at the end of it all, you'll find peace. I love you.”
ICYMI, KD opened up to his fellow housemates about having an anxiety attack brought about by the pandemic during the October 21st episode of the reality program. KD said he quit online class because he disliked it and got exhausted. Big Brother came to the rescue and stressed the importance of recognizing mental health. Big Brother also reminded KD that he was never a burden.
#PBBS10SupportKita, the episode hashtag, became a top trending topic on Philippine Twitter. It was a timely and significant episode because it shed light on mental health issues concerning the youth, especially during the pandemic. KD has been diagnosed with depression by Pinoy Big Brother resident psychologist, Dr. Randy Dellosa.
On Sunday, KD and Alexa left the house as evictees. KD has always been vocal about becoming a music producer. True to his moniker, the Musical Wonder Boy of Paranaque, KD collaborated with his fellow housemates and wrote original songs during his stay in the Big Brother House. He also showcased his singing and guitar-playing skills in several performances inside the house.
