Earlier this year, Andrea Brillantes went viral after a video of her talking in a baby voice while buying in a store made the rounds on social media.

Now, the actress is explaining why she does that in an interview with Karen Davila.

Watch the interview below, which was recorded for Davila’s vlog:

var gptAdSlots = [];
window.googletag = window.googletag || {cmd: []};
googletag.cmd.push(function() {
var mapping1 = googletag.sizeMapping().
addSize([728, 300], [[300,250], [728, 90]]).
addSize([0, 0], []).
build();
gptAdSlots[1] =
googletag.defineSlot(‘/21622890900,22445228651/PH_wheninmanila.com_pc_article_mid2_728x90//300×250’, [[300, 250], [728, 90]], ‘div-gpt-ad-1623754005113-0’).setCollapseEmptyDiv(true).defineSizeMapping(mapping1).addService(googletag.pubads());
googletag.pubads().enableSingleRequest();googletag.enableServices();googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1623754005113-0’);
});

In the video, Brillantes said, “‘Yung pagbe-baby talk ko na palaging nagte-trending, voice ko talaga siya pero hindi siya ‘yung napipili ko subconsciously. Bigla lang siya nagsi-switch kasi nung bata ako kulang ako sa pansin — bunso ako then hindi ako lumaki sa parents ko – baby-baby talaga ako.”

According to the actress, the baby talk comes out for a variety of reasons. One reason for this is when she feels comfortable around a person. Brillantes shared, “Minsan lalabas siya kapag ibig sabihin nun, komportable ako sa iyo or feeling ko may nakikita akong father figure sa iyo, or kuya figure, ate figure.”

The baby talk also comes when she feels excited, happy, or even when she’s uncomfortable. She added, “Minsan lalabas din siya kapag hindi ako kumportable sa tao. Parang natatakot ako o nahihiya ako.”

Brillantes also said, “Minsan tsaka ko na lang siya mari-realize ‘pag inaasar na ako ng tao na nagbe-baby talk ako.”

When asked if she gets hurt when people comment on it, she said no. She mentioned, “Bumabalik at bumabalik talaga siya. Nababago ko lang siya kapag may role ako kasi trabaho ‘yon at kailangan. So feeling ko part talaga siya ng childhood ko na nawala.”

In the vlog, Brillantes also talked about her childhood, where she entered showbiz at the age of seven. She also became the family’s breadwinner and paid for the food, things, taxes, and electricity. The actress said, “Nawalan ako ng childhood dahil ang dami kong sinacrifice. May mga dream school ako, as in gusto ko talagang school na, kaya ko naman, pero pag pumasok ako sa school na iyon, magugutom kami.”
