At the beginning of his interview with Toni Gonzaga, he said: “Probably a lot of people won’t believe me but I was five years old when I realized na I was really confused.”

“I was Grade 1 and I remember ‘yung mga classmates ko, tinutukso ako sa ibang classmate ko na lalaki and one thing in my mind was, ‘Bakit, eh pareho kami?’ At five years old, that was my thought. Obviously, I didn’t know any labels or anything like that. So I don’t understand. And I remember that my first crush in Grade 1 was a girl,” he added.

There were even times he would do role play with his brother and pretend to be a boy.

Jake Zyrus struggled while growing up especially he did not want to disappoint people who are close to him like David Foster and Oprah Winfrey.

But he is still grateful for all the experiences he had being Charice.

“The moment I transitioned, the moment na nag-undergo na ako ng hormone change and all that, I would still talk about what happened before, with Charice and all that. I will always be grateful, I enjoyed ‘yung experience, ‘yung mga tao na nakilala ko… I am grateful na until now, I am still able to get in touch with them, with David,” he said.
