TV HOST Amy Perez says Adi, her 13-year-old son with estranged husband, musician Brix Ferraris, doesn?t mind changing his last name.
?He has no objection to being a Castillo,? Amy told Inquirer. Radio reporter Carlo Castillo is Amy?s current boyfriend. They have a 2-year-old son, Sean Kyle.
?Adi already considers Carlo his dad,? Amy said during a media gathering for her early morning show ?Sapul sa Singko,? on TV5.
For the change of surname, Carlo has to legally adopt Adi, Amy said. ?We may need his father?s consent. One of these days, we will see a lawyer.?
She continued: ?Carlo and I are hoping [that] Brix will file for divorce, wherever he is now.? Amy?s earlier plea for annulment was denied by the Supreme Court. Last she heard, Brix was based in California.
Adi last spoke to Brix in 2005, said Amy. Father and son were supposed to go out, but the date was cancelled.
Amy is thankful that Carlo understands what Adi is going through. In fact, she said, Carlo?s whole family ?accepted me and Adi like their own.?
Adi takes the role of big brother to Kyle seriously, the proud mom said. ?He is always excited to come home from school to play with Kyle.?
Amy and news anchors Erwin Tulfo and Martin Andanar host the segment ?Love Hurts? on TV5?s morning news magazine show.
