The father of “It’s Showtime” host Vhong Navarro died today, his fellow co-hosts revealed on the noontime show.

One of the show’s host, Amy Perez, announced that Navarro’s dad, Danilo, passed on. Navarro was not present on today’s show due to his father’s death.


Offering their condolences, they gave a moment of silence for the host’s father. “Alam naming kaya mo ‘yan at nandito kami buong pamilya mo… at ang buong madlang people na kasama mo sa pagdadalamhati mo,” Navarro’s co-host, Jhong Hilario said to console his friend.


(We know that you can go through this, and we’re here, your entire family, and our audience; we’re with you through your grief.)

It was not made clear what the cause of his father’s death was, but Navarro had been posting photos on his Instagram page, revealing that his father had been hospitalized.

In one such photo, Navarro and his whole family chose to spend Christmas with their padre de pamilya in the hospital.

Merry Christmas Everyone 🎄🎁

On his birthday, he took the opportunity to post throwback photos of the two of them. Navarro was grateful that “ang pahiramin pa samin ang buhay mo ang isang pinaka magandang regalong [natanggap] ko [ngayong] kaarawan ko.” (Your life still being lent to us is one of the greatest gifts I’ve received on my birthday.)

Dad, ang pahiramin pa samin ang buhay mo ang isang pinaka magandang regalong natangap ko ngyon kaarawan ko. Maraming salamat sa patuloy mong paglaban at sa mga Madlang Pips na patuloy na nagdadasal kay Dad. Maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
