5 Aug - Jeric Raval has recently dismissed rumours that daughter AJ Raval is currently pregnant with Aljur Abrenica's baby.
In an interview with comedian Ogie Diaz recently, the actor stated that he actually called his daughter, who was shooting a movie in Angeles City when the latest pregnancy rumour circulated online.
"She was finishing her movie with Viva. She is not pregnant. Why would she be shooting if she is pregnant?" he said.
Jeric also admitted that he asked AJ why she kept quiet about the rumour, and was told by the actress that she is tired of responding, seeing that such a rumour has been circulating for months.
However, despite the fake rumour, Jeric said that he has no issue at all if AJ is pregnant, saying that he doesn't understand why people are seeing issues with women being pregnant.
"If she is pregnant, then she should give birth. What is worrisome is if a pregnant woman doesn't give birth after full term," he said, lightheartedly.
