RITA GAVIOLA – The former Pinoy Big Brother housemate who rose to fame as Badjao Girl reacted to a netizen claiming that she’s now a single mom.
Rita, also known as Badjao Girl, rose to prominence after a photo of her taken by Topher Quinto Burgo during the Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Quezon, went viral on social media.
Rita was only 13 years old at the time. Her family, along with her five other siblings, traveled from Zamboanga to Lucena City in Quezon in search of a better life.
Rita’s father used to be a garbage collector, and her mother is a stay-at-home mom.

Fast forward to today, and Badjao Girl has achieved celebrity status.
It was just recently when Rita Gaviola introduced her baby girl named Kiana.
She said that although she is ready for the new chapter of her life, it is still inevitable that she will be hurt by the negative comments of netizens. But she and her partner consider their child a blessing.
Earlier, she went to the video-sharing platform, TikTok wherein she posted an emotional video of herself alongside her baby.

The first one told her that she might have regretted her decision to enter motherhood. She immediately refuted the comment saying that a baby is a blessing.
Another netizen stressed that being a single mom is such a hard thing.
