He shared that his mom was shocked upon knowing his preference but eventually answered him with positivity.
"Really? Okay…" Andre said pertaining to the reply of his mom.
Andre is in a relationship now with a girl but he admitted that he is also attracted to boys. He said he is even open for same-sex sexual relationship.
In an Instagram post by Ces, the journalist showed to public how she became more proud of her son for his brave decisions.
She even said that she salutes Andre for the bold move and for being the daughter she never had.
