MANILA, Philippines - Singer Angeline Quinto is open to undergo DNA testing after a woman claiming to be her real mother has surfaced.

In an interview on "The Buzz" on Sunday, Quinto said she has heard reports that a woman claiming to be the real mother of the singer is willing to undergo DNA testing  to prove her claims.

"Kaya sabi ko kahit po gumastos ako sa DNA (testing) basta malaman ko lang ang totoo. Kasi ayaw ko namang  sayangin ang pagkakataon na may lumalapit sa akin. Paano po kung siya talaga? Matagal ko na siyang gustong makita talaga, Quinto said.

The singer admitted that she's still hoping to finally meet her mother.

"Siyempre po kahit sino pong tao hindi ba importante sa kanila kung kanino tayo nanggaling? 'Yun po ang pinaka-importante sa akin," Quinto said.

Asked if she  believes that her mother is still alive, Quinto replied: "Sa totoo lang, may mga kamag-anak ako na nagsasabi na patay na daw ang tunay kong nanay. Kaya lang po ang pakiramdam ko ay ang lakas na buhay pa siya. At saka ang tagal kong pinagdarasal 'yon na sana ay dumating na 'yung oras na magkita kami," she said.

In an interview, the singer's adoptive mother Sylvia Quinto, affectionately called "Mama Bab" by the singer, said she adopted the singer from her niece.

Currently, Quinto is promoting her debut film "Born To Love You" with Coco Martin. "Born To Love You" will hit theaters on May 30.
