Former Channel 3 actress, Annie Brooks has become the hot topic of the day. For having become pregnant and given birth to a now 3 month son to famous entertainer, “Film” Rattapoom Tokongsup. Lastly Annie had came out to give a press statement to the public with her 3 month old son in her arms for the first time saying that she does not want to be in distress. She also goes on to say that the reason why she’s coming out to give her statements was because she felt like she was getting slapped in the face, so she had to come out and clear the news. Annie also goes on to say that if Film wants a paternity test than he can get one A.S.A,.P, but if the results reveal that he is the father than he can not ask for rights as the father because Annie can raise her son on her own.

Annie goes on to say that there have been casting directors who have given her encouragement and given her roles in lakorns so she could save money to raise her son. She assures that her child was born of love, but as for the male side…she doesn’t know.
What is the reason why you decided to come out and speak?
“Because there were so many news coming out and it felt like I was getting slapped in the face and that I’m not a good woman. Like with the news yesterday when he (Film) had given a press conference not denying that he doesn’t know me which when I read it I felt happy because he didn’t deny it. The reason why I’m hurting inside is because since the beginning when I have given birth Film had come to see me at the hospital. The truth is that there was no one there with me and I had driven myself to the hospital and I had been on maternity rest for a whole week, but no one had came to visit or see me. As for the 200,000 baht, he did call me before I had given birth to say that he wanted to help out, but I told him it was OK, I have the money because like I said at the time, I decided that I was going to raise my child on my own.”
“The reason why I’m out with my son is not because I need sympathy because 3 months prior when I had given birth, I had to take care of myself and my child with no help.”
The rumors on the internet are saying that you’re causing a scandal because you’re trying to leech off of Film for his money.
“If I’m trying to lock him down because of money, is he really that rich? Does he really have a lot of money for me to leech off of him? If I wanted to cause a scandal, I would’ve came out when I was pregnant.”

After the news came out have you got in contact with Film?
“I did not contact him at all because I don’t know what I should be talking to him about. If I was going to talk to him what benefit will I have from it because I never wanted anything from him from the beginning. As for the DNA testing, it’s not that I’m afraid to not get the test – we can get the test right now, but there have been problems that has us stopping to going to that part, which it’s something that I can’t talk about. If I do say it, it’s like I’ll be damaging both sides, but Film will be more damaged than I will. It’s because he’s more famous than I am and that is the reason why I don’t want to say it. Right now, I’ve given up on it already.”
In the past there have been no news of you and Film at all. Is it because the other side didn’t want you to come and say that you 2 were seeing each other?
“Yes, there have been some people who didn’t want me to say it, but I understand him because he’s afraid. I wasn’t as famous as him, but recently towards the end, like yesterday he called to talk to me. He had said, “We both have to help each other out because our future will need the help of the other.” I had told him to stop being afraid and he shouldn’t be afraid anymore. I won’t hurt him for sure, but the reason why I had to come out and speak today even though I don’t want to speak. It’s because the news were damaging towards me and that’s the reason why I had to come out and speak and I am not demanding for money either.”
Has Film seen the child?
“He said the baby was cute and he looked like a doll. I let him hold our son.” (Is Film’s name on the birth certificate as father?) “As for the important documents can I not reveal that because it might have an impact with my son in the future, I’m not sure about that. If one day he grows up and asks than one day, I’ll have the right answers for him. It’s just that I will need time to think of the right answers for his questions. As for Film in the future we can be friends. If you ask can I have him be the father of my child? One day my son will know about it.”
But you’re assuring everyone that the child is Film’s?
“Those who are a mother and father there would be an instant bond with the child. So why is it when he saw the child he wanted to take care of him? Why?”
The reason why you want to get a DNA is it because Film isn’t confident in being the father or do you want to prove to Film that you only had Film?
“That’s right I want to prove it because I want him and I to feel assured of the situation and that there should be no doubts. If I was the one that asked for the paternity test then that means I’m very confident in it.”
Was the child born out of love from you and Film?
“As for me, he was born out of my love, but as for Film, I don’t know. Although, I can connect to what Film feels.”
What about the future of going back to the Entertainment Business?
“It will have to be up to the bosses, but I”m very happy. Thank you to everyone at Work Point and Channel 3 for giving me encouragement saying that I shouldn’t be afraid and there would be work for me.”
What did you name your son?
“He doesn’t have a nickname yet, but my friends who have came to visit would call him, “Big Tiger”, “Kagi”, or “Big Bao” because my son is chubby because he’s drinking formulated milk. I haven’t decided on a nickname for him yet, but his name is “Teekayu” and his last name is mine, but I won’t tell what my real last name is.”
What would you like to say to the public?
“Don’t look at who is right or who is wrong. No one would want this problem to happen because my son is ugly and hateful. (* น่าเกลียด น่าชั่ง/Thai saying to say about babies to ward off bad spirits and in hope they grow up handsome/beautiful.) Be happy for us and with the situation that has happened and I want the elders to give us the opportunity. We have made a mistake, but we didn’t make a 2nd mistake by hurting him (having an abortion). I had kept him and carried him really good for 9 months and I don’t want Film to think too much. I’m sorry the more that I keep it a secret the more reporters will go to the front of my condo and that’s when I felt like it was the time for me to come out.”
