COCO Martin confirmed Sunday that he is not the father of Katherine Luna's love child.

The actor made the revelation in a tell-all interview with King of Talk Boy Abunda on "The Buzz 15."

Martin said that he learned about the child when he was filming the movie "Born To Love You" with co-star Angeline Quinto.

"Ang gusto ko mangyari gusto ko ibigay yung best ko para sa magiging anak ko. Kinausap ko na yung lola na parang kung maaari ibigay na sa akin para kahit papaano mabigyan ko ng tamang guidance. Para makatulong ako, para mabigyan ko ng pangangailangan niya," he said.

Martin immediately called talent manager Biboy Arboleda to share the good news but the latter advised him to make everything official and take a paternity test.

"Sabi niya (Arboleda) sa akin, 'Teka lang hindi ganun kadali iyon. Kailangan idaan sa legal na sitwasyon. Kung talagang gusto mo, kausapin natin, ipa-DNA muna natin,'" he said.

After taking the DNA test, Martin found out that he was not the father of Luna's child.

"Nasaktan ako dahil bumalik sa akin yung mga nakaraan. Sabi ko nga lahat ng masasakit na salitang inabot ko sa iba’t ibang opinion ng mga tao, pati lola ko nahihiyang lumabas kasi napakairesponsable kong tao, iyon ang tingin sa akin," he said.

Martin recalled that he took all the nasty comments thrown his way when Luna went public and revealed that he is the father of her child.

"Lahat ng mga panlalait, lahat ng mga masasakit na salita, inabot ko. Nagsisimula pa lang ako ang dumi-dumi na ng pangalan ko. Hindi pa nga ako kilala ng tao, sira na ako," he said.

The actor clarified that he was beside Luna since he learned about her pregnancy and he gave all the support he could give.

"Hindi alam ng mga tao na ginagawa ko ang mga responsibilidad ko. Simula nung pagkabuntis niya hanggang sa nung nanganak siya. Pero every time na iniinterview siya sa TV, wala ako," he said.

"Ako naman, bilang lalaki, ayaw kong patulan or i-defend ang sarili ko kasi alam ko yung totoo. Every time na ginagawa ko yung part ko, kaakibat noon yung masasakit na sinasabi niya sa TV," Martin said.

In the end, the actor said he was saddened by the development as this might affect the kid.

"Sana naisip mo din 'yung bata. Kasi lahat ng mga kalaro niya, mga kamag-anak niya, I'm sure kapag nakikita ako sa TV 'Ay 'yung daddy ko.' Hindi lang ako. Ang laki nung damage na nangyari. Paano na siya ngayon? 'Yung pinakainaasahan niyang hope, wala pala,” he ended. (Sunnex)
