The truth behind the real identities of Tisay (Heaven Peralejo) and Cai (Barbie Imperial) finally unraveled last week in Bagong Umaga as Ian (Cris Villanueva) confirmed that the former is his real daughter while Cai is Jose (Keempee de Leon at Monica’s (Nikki Valdez) real child.
Ian began having suspicions as Hilda (Rio Locsin) told him that Diana (Glydel Mercado) switched their children. But it was the positive result of a paternity test that convinced him.
It didn’t take long before Tisay learned the truth as she confronted Diana about her own suspicion. While Diana did not directly admit it, she asked Tisay if she could turn her back on the family she grew up in and embrace being a Veradona.
As the truth finally took hold of her, Tisay suggested she would ask Cai for help since it was the only way to help Monica get treatment.
Will Cai soon find out the truth? How will she accept it?
Meanwhile netizens could not contain themselves as the events unfolded, and posted their praises for the show on social media.
“Sobrang honest. Iba ang prinsipyo nang mga Magbanua talaga, kahit masakit sa kanila eh talagang hinarap nila ang katotohanan considering pa din kung ano mararamdaman nang bawat isa. @hperalejo @nikkivaldez_ @YourYvesFlores,” said ni@PhilJieASH.

“Di ko ata ma imagine kung sakin nangyari to. At ang galing galing ng pag-act ni @hperalejo. Napalabas nya yung tipong gulong gulo ka dahil yung pamilyang kinalakhan mo hindi mo pala tunay na kadugo,” posted @HPnambawan.
