Former child star Bugoy Cariño and athlete Ennajie “EJ” Laure have been the talk of the town after netizens and tabloid newspapers in the Philippines claimed that they are expecting a child.
Cariño, 15, and Laure, 20, used their respective social media accounts to respond and deny the speculations.
Cariño was the first one to express his thoughts on the issue by posting a cryptic message on Twitter that many believe was his response to the rumors.
“Hahahahaha. Tatawanan ko na lang kayo,” he said on Twitter.
HAHAHAHAHA ??? tatawanan ko nalang kayooooo ???????

He also posted a photo on his Instagram story which he captioned, “Praying for those people who have nothing to do with their lives.”
Meanwhile, Laure, who is known for being the captain of the UST Golden Tigresses volleyball team, debunked the issue through her Facebook account.
“Ewan ko ba kasi talaga sa trip niyo. Basta ako, I’ve been enjoying my life and resting my shoulder for [UAAP Season 81]. Been living nice and simple then makakabasa ako ng kung ano-ano?” she said on Facebook.
A month ago, Laure also quashed the rumor that she was suffering from a chronic shoulder injury.
“December buntis daw ako, tapos January buntis din ako, tapos March buntis na naman? Jusko 3 months na akong naging buntis so triplets pala ‘to?” she said.
