The general public learned about the existence of Kim Nichole Baranda in 2013 when her mom, Phoemela Baranda, revealed the nature of their relationship on the now-defunct “Buzz ng Bayan.”
The 33-year-old actress initially didn’t want her daughter to enter the showbiz industry. However, when Nichole joined “Pinoy Big Brother: All In” the following year, Phoemela was very supportive of her daughter’s decision.
Back then, Phoemela’s daughter was only 15 years old and was still in high school at Collegio de San Agustin. In school, she participated in several extra-curricular activities, including joining the school’s dance troupe.

The young lady admitted that she was just taking random photos at that the time.
