Is Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao living in, marrying lover?
MANILA, Philippines – Is Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao getting married soon?
Boxing champion and Saranggani Representative Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao revealed in a television interview last week with broadcaster Anthony Taberna that his mother, 65, was planning to get married with her 40-year old boyfriend.
Pacquiao said to his knowledge his mom and her Cebuano boyfriend were living in.
“Mommy ko, sinabihan ko siya, sabi ko, ikaw na bahala. Sundin mo ‘yung gusto ng katawan mo, or sundin mo ang gusto ng Panginoon?” the boxing icon, who is also an Evangelical Christian pastor, said.
(I told my mother that it’s up to her. You follow what you’re flesh wants or you follow the will of God?)
Pacquiao said he has advised his mother not to be swayed by worldly pleasures, especially of the flesh.
He said that he did not want his mother to remarry, saying she is still married to her first husband who isn’t his father.
He disclosed that his father was Mommy Dionisia’s second partner.
“Hindi ako nagkulang ng paalala,” he said.
(I never got tired of advising her.)
Mommy Dionisia in a separate television interview, however, denied she has a boyfriend but was quick to say that having suitors is normal.
