Heart Evangelista responds to basher who said she’s only pretty because she’s childless

By John Patrick Magno Ranara Published May 17, 2024 1:20 pm

Heart Evangelista took the time to respond to a social media user who claimed that she is only beautiful because she doesn't have any children.

On her TikTok account, the actress, who recently opened up about suffering her fourth miscarriage, addressed a comment from a user who took a jab at her appearance.

The now-deleted insult was posted in the thread of a video comparing Heart's looks with Anne Curtis' as they stood side by side during an event. "Maganda si Anne, pero nung tumabi siya kay Heart, grave nabawasan ganda niya, napakaliit ng mukha ni Heart, grabe," it read.

"Wala kasing anak," the TikTok user commented in the post.

In response, Heart challenged her basher to use their real account so she can address them properly, saying, "Napipikon ako sa'yo ha."

"My dear, it's already 2024. I have lost four babies already, don't give me this sh*t," the local star asserted.

"Darling, nag-eeffort po akong magpaganda, and I live a very grateful and peaceful life. It makes a big difference and every day po akong nagdederma kaya fresh," she continued.

She ended her statement by jokingly asking TikTok to help her find the user she replied to.

In the comments section, TikTok users stood by her side and urged others to be kind to the actress as losing a baby can be a difficult experience.

"Sana maging sensitive po tayo sa mga comments, marami po kasi gusto magkaanak at ginagawa ang lahat, kaso wala pa rin po," one user commented.

Another one wrote, "People are so insensitive and just mean. Don’t even know the word empathy."

Heart bared the loss of her unborn son "FrancisKo" in an Instagram post on May 12, which coincided with Mother's Day.

She shared that she lost her baby boy "a few days ago" and called it one of her "biggest heartbreaks." She went on to greet mothers, fur moms, mothers to friends, and women who have experienced the same thing in the past.

"Even if I am heartbroken, I will keep my heart intact while you find your way back to us. Your beating heart has healed me in so many ways. I love you, anak...  I'll be waiting for you," she ended as she signed the letter "Mama Heart."

Heart, who is married to Sen. Chiz Escudero, has been open about her journey to motherhood. She lost twin babies in a miscarriage in 2018. In September 2022, she underwent in vitro fertilization which turned out to be "one of the toughest, challenging times" of her life as her body did not react well to the medicine she was injected with.
