LOOK: Netizens laud Jodi Sta. Maria, Iwa Moto’s bonding moment
Following their bitter dispute years ago, Jodi Sta. Maria and Iwa Moto have buried the hatchet and are bonding together with their children.
Both were spotted at a basketball game of Thirdy, the actress’ son with former husband Panfilo “Pampi” Lacson Jr. Moto, an alumna of the reality search “Starstruck,” is the current partner of Lacson and they have a daughter, 3-year-old Hiromi Eve. Their portrait, which was posted on their Instagram accounts, reaped kudos from netizens.
“This is a good example of forgiveness and moving on,” one user lauded. Another netizen said, “This is a very good example! No bitterness move on for the love of the kids.”
Prior to their recent meet-up, Moto and Sta. Maria were photographed together during Thirdy’s Moving Up Day last April.
Sta. Maria and Moto were in bad blood after the latter accused Sta. Maria of having an affair with Moto’s then spouse, Mickey Ablan, while she was still married to Lacson, ABS-CBN previously reported.
However, Lacson embarked on a relationship with Moto after Sta Maria split with him in 2011. Soon after, Sta. Maria moved on and dated actor-politician Jolo Revilla, with whom she called it quits in 2016.
