- Andrea del Rosario talked about her chanced encounter with Vin Diesel during a trip to the States
- Eyebrows were raised when she first opened up about it until Diesel confirmed it himself
- Now, she lives a life away from controversy as she enjoys being a single mother and a vice mayor in Calatagan, Batangas
More than 10 years after their unexpected encounter in the United States, Andrea del Rosario opened up about her rumored romance with Hollywood actor Vin Diesel on GMA’s ‘Tunay na Buhay.’
Actress turned vice mayor Andrea recalled how she used to boast about meeting the famous ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise star when she had a short vacation in Los Angeles with friend, Michelle Bayle. However, people were doubtful of her claims when she failed to produce a photo of the two of them for proof. Some even thought that Andrea was simply seeking attention.
Eventually, speculations regarding the truth behind her statements were silenced when Ricky Lo managed to confirm the situation with Vin Diesel.
When asked whether Diesel had courted her then, the former member of ‘Viva Hot Babes’ refused to give a clear answer and laughed it off instead.
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Andrea narrated that Diesel walked up to her and Bayle while they were in a bar – at this point, she remained unaware of the identity of the actor. A few moments later, Diesel invited them over to his place as he was hosting a house party. It was only when they have arrived at his home that the face and name clicked into place in Andrea’s mind.
The pair saw each other twice before the Filipina had to fly back home.
With the rumors circulating that her ‘miracle baby’ Beatrice Anne was an offspring of Diesel, Andrea quickly dismissed it and shared how she single-handedly raised her daughter.
The child had to undergo several surgeries before, and Andrea confessed that it was no feat especially since she was away from the support of her loved ones. Thankfully, Andrea’s continuous prayers have been fruitful as Beatrice is now a healthy six-year old.
At present, Andrea’s life is far from what was once filled with controversy – she is now busy being a hands-on mother, business owner, and a politician.
Before winning the elections and becoming the vice mayor of Calatagan in Batangas, Andrea del Rosario was an actress and a model. She was initially a talent of Star Magic, until she decided to transfer to its rival network, GMA-7.
