In 2007, Willie Revillame – then hosting the now-defunct game show “Wowowee” – introduced his third child to the world at last. Marimonte Shanelle was only three years old at the time, facing the audience with unquestionable sparks and innocence in her eyes. Apparently, the young child was the product of her dad’s controversial affair with his ex-girlfriend, a certain Sharon Beduya, in the past.
As he introduced her live on national TV, the renowned TV host told a funny story about his daughter.
“Actually, pangalawang beses ko na siyang nakita nung maliit pa siya. Nung ikakasal na ko ulit, tumawag sa ‘kin yong kanyang mommy. Kinausap niya ako, ‘Gusto ka daw kausapin ng baby mo.’ Sabi ng bata, ‘Hello? Willie? Ikaw ba tatay ko?’ Tapos sabi ko, ‘Oo.’ [Sabi niya,] ‘Ikakasal ka na naman?’ Ang cute, di ba?”
After her short exposure on television, not much has been heard about the activities and goings on of Marimonte. That is, until recently when several entertainment sites got a hold of a few scoops about Willie Revillame and his daughter.
From being a young little girl that we once saw, Marimonte – who goes by her nickname Monty – has now matured into a fine young lady. Her beauty isn’t far from her elder sister Meryll Soriano’s, with whom she’s been close with as she grows up in Baguio.
Although it’s unfortunate that there’s hardly any other info about Willie’s daughter at this point in time. A quick Internet search shows that even her Instagram account is set to private, possibly hinting at her wish to stay low key from the public.
At any rate, we’d love to hear more about Willie Revillame’s daughter! Who knows, maybe in due time she’ll entertain ideas about joining the showbiz industry in some capacity. She surely has the pedigree for it.
