MEXICO CITY, September 18 (EL UNIVERSAL).- Like very few times, actress Verónica Castro spoke about one of the most beautiful and also one of the most controversial moments of her life, her pregnancy with Cristian Castro, not only because it was a star at the height of his career, but because his son was the product of a relationship with a married man, the famous comedian Manuel “El Loco” Valdés.
This little detail about Valdés’ marital status was something that Castro ignored. However, in an interview he gave to Pati Chapoy, the protagonist of “The rich also cry”, he confessed that once he learned the truth, he decided to apologize to the comedian’s last wife and even told how that meeting was.
Although he did not detail whether they met face to face, he did explain that he decided to talk to her, because he never wanted to hurt her: “(I said) Madam, excuse me, I did not know that (Manuel) was still married to you.” He told me, ‘we weren’t together anymore, don’t worry, Veronica.’ But I did feel an obligation because the last thing I want in life is to hurt a woman, because the last thing I want is for them to hurt me too. “, he confessed.
How was the relationship with “El Loco”?
Verónica also explained that she was very much in love with the deceased comedian, but that she was the one who decided to end the relationship because of the reaction she had when she found out that she was going to be a father.
“I think he didn’t like (the news) because he did throw himself back, but I said ‘good’, if they don’t react well at that moment, then you won’t have to force them to ‘give me money,'” he said.
Then, the great love she felt for her son’s father turned into a deep disappointment, which helped her to turn the page and focus on her son and being a great mother to him: “I’m very lucky, When something disappoints me strongly, it comes out of the root so as not to see it again and if I don’t see it again, the better, “he added.
The one she did find great support from was her mother, who did not leave her alone and, far from reproaching her, gave her the encouragement she needed to move forward: “I had a wonderful response from my mother, which is why my Mom, well, we were like fingernails and dirt, my mom was part of me. She told me, ‘what do you want to do?’ my son’, and he tells me, ‘well, don’t have a problem, I have you and I’m alone, and where 3 eat, 4 eat,'” she concluded.
Verónica was a single mother because it was not until the interpreter of “Azul” turned 30 that her father had an approach with him and recognized him as his son.
