BB Gandanghari is now legally woman

The wheel of fate seems to be in favor of the Padilla Family.

After Robin Padilla received pardon from President Rodrigo Duterte, former Rustom Padilla, now BB Gandanghari gets approval from the Superior Court of California, United States to change her name.

BB showed her joy over this good news in her Instagram post today, November 17 with a caption “This is it! And I thought this day would never come. And I thank my GOD and my LORD for making these things happen. Everything makes sense now... and to this great country the United States of America for providing this #basicrhumanright... Thank you!!! #officiallyBBlegallyGandanghari”

Aside from her name, the 49-year old Filipino actress also filed petition to change her gender at the Superior Court of California, County of Orange on August 18, 2016.

Rustom Padilla admitted his gender preference when he joined the Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity edition in 2006.

Rustom said to Keanna Reeves, “Na realize ko na I’m gay.”
