Heart wants one last chat with Miriam Defensor-Santiago
Actress Heart Evangelista has expressed desire to have one last conversation with the late senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago.
She shared on Tuesday an Instagram photo with the late senator captioned: “If only I could turn back time and have one last conversation with you.”
Evangelista said “people would have loved an ‘Adulting 101 with Senator Miriam’ video too,” as her video with husband Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero on adulting recently went viral.
“Missing you everyday, Sen. Miriam,” she added.
Evangelista was known to be close to Santiago, even describing the senator as her “second mom” and “mentor.”
It was the senator who played cupid and paved way for the actress to meet her husband Escudero.
