Unknown to many, some of the celebrities grew up in their adoptive families.
Angelica used to wonder why she looks different from her parents and siblings. The actress already had a hunch back then that she was adopted but was only able to confirm it in 2010. Nevertheless, she never felt unloved, especially by her adoptive mother. She said that she never wondered how to be loved a mother because her adoptive mother loved her more than her self.
When the actress found out that she was adopted, her Mommy Melanie showed the photos and details that she wanted to know. She didn’t want to look for her biological parents but after learning that her biological mom passed away, she tried looking for her father. Shortly after, she found her real father, Mark Charlson.
The singer-actress was abandoned by her biological parents at the very young age of 6 months. Jennylyn was then raised by her Mommy Lydia. Her adoptive mother is a distant relative of her biological mom.
She has reconnected with Noli Pineda and Jinkee, her biological parents.
