8 Nov – Billy Crawford recently attributed his weight loss to his new healthy lifestyle, and not an illness - like some were made to believe.

As reported on Rappler, the actor shared that particular information on the talk show, "Tonight with Boy Abunda", telling the titular host that he decided to give up smoking and drinking for his own health after gaining a lot of weight prior to his marriage to actress Coleen Garcia.

"I had to do something seriously. I had to take my job seriously, my health seriously. So I tried to lose the weight," he said.

Crawford said that being sober helped a lot in losing the extra weight, in addition to cutting sugary food like pasta, bread, and fruits.

"I made a promise to God and I saw my father's deterioration as well. I saw his health deteriorating because of cigarettes, because of alcohol, it made me think I want to be a father. I want to have a family," he said, adding that Garcia's presence in his life enabled him to go through with such plan.
