Former actress Princess Punzalan took to Instagram to reveal that she had an abortion when she was just 15 years old.

Punzalan shared that it was fear that made her do it.

"When I was 15, I got pregnant. I had an abortion because I was afraid of my mom and because the guy would not stand up for the baby," Punzalan said.

"And then, at 19, I found a guy who would marry me. For four and a half years, we tried, but I didn't get pregnant. That marriage dissolved," she added.

The former actress previously married TV host Willie Revillame in 1990.

In addition, Punzalan shared that in her mid-30s, she got married again but had difficulty getting pregnant.

"We tried for 10 years to get pregnant. I didn't get pregnant. We tried different kinds of ways to get pregnant, I didn't. So we adopted. It was a long hard climb to finally find our match," she said.

Punzalan said she's grateful to the birth mom for not deciding to kill her,
"'Coz right now I'm so happy with my daughter, and I'm very grateful that she is in my life."
