Unlike stars Edith González and Érika Buenfil –who recently disclosed the identities of their children's fathers– Gloria Trevi refuses to follow the tell-all trend, and says she will only reveal the truth to her six-year-old son, Ángel Gabriel, when he inquires.

The 40-year-old singer admitted she didn't feel any social responsibility to publicly comment on the paternity of her son.

"To my son? Of course. The day he asks me, I'll tell him," assured Trevi when asked by the Mexican daily Reforma. "I think the era of illegitimate children ended a while ago," said Trevi, who was surprised by the scandal that's been created involving single mothers.

The identity of the father of Ángel Gabriel–who was conceived in prison when the singer of "Zapatos viejos" was detained in Brazil–is one of Trevi's most coveted secrets. The list of possibilities has always included her ex-manager/ex-lover, Sergio Andrade, a prison guard, and even a high-ranking official of the Carioca penitentiary.
