Robin Padilla gets tearful call from mommy Eva about Mariel Rodriguez’s caring ways
We’ve all heard of monsters-in-law, in-laws who are meddlesome, aggravating and manipulative — the kind that pose as a potential threat and nightmare to every married couple. Few are lucky to say they never have to resort to such names, and for Eva Cariño-Padilla, action star Robin Padilla’s mom, she can claim that she and daughter-in-law Mariel Rodriguez are in great terms.
Robin took to Instagram yesterday to share a heartwarming story about his wife and mother; the latter apparently called him up in tears the other day, Tuesday.
“Tinawagan ako ng Ermats ko kahapon ng tanghali @evacarinopadilla at siyay umiiyak nabigla ako at ninierbios, pero wala naman pala emergency,” wrote Robin. “Gusto daw niya malaman ko na love na love daw niya ang asawa ko.”
(My mother called me up on the phone yesterday afternoon and she was in tears. I was shocked and nervous, but found out there wasn’t any emergency. She just wanted me to know that she loves my wife very much.)
Eva told Robin on the phone that she and Mariel recently went to a birthday party of his aunt Letty. Once they arrived to the party, Eva felt the need to pee, so she went to the toilet. However, she discovered the toilet was dirty, perhaps after being used one time too many by all the visitors.
“Kagyat daw siyang sinamahan ni Mariel sa cr at nilinis ang cr,” narrated Robin. “Pati ang toilet bowl na nilagyan ng tissue ang bawat inches ng uupuan niya.”
(Mariel went with her to the comfort room and cleaned the place. Even the toilet bowl, she covered every inch of it with tissue so my mother can sit down)
Robin then commended his wife for her selflessness. “Maraming salamat sa iyo, @marieltpadilla,” thanked Robin. “Ang iyong kagandahan ay nagmumula sa iyong puso bago sa iyong panlabas na anyo.”
(Many thanks to you, @marieltpadilla. Your beauty comes from your heart before your physical looks.)
They say that when a man marries, he leaves behind his mother to embrace a new life with his wife. In Padilla’s case, however, he luckily gets to keep both. JB
