Cherry Pie Picache’s son Nio Tria approves her relationship with Edu Manzano
Cherry Pie Picache’s son Nio Tria has expressed his support for his mother’s relationship with her fellow actor Edu Manzano, weeks after the two confirmed they are dating.
Tria showed his support for the relationship when asked about it in an interview for ABS-CBN’s “Kapamilya Chat” shown on the network’s YouTube channel yesterday, Dec. 4. He was interviewed alongside his “Saying Goodbye” co-stars Andrea Brillantes and Seth Fedelin.
“Oo, approve ako. Siyempre sinu-support ko ‘yung mom ko kasi malaki na siya,” he said. “Alam na niya ang mga ginagawa niya. Matanda na siya, alam na niya ‘yun.”
(Yes, I approve. Of course, I support my mom because she’s already a grown up. She already knows what she’s doing. She’s a grown woman, she already knows that.)
Brillantes then pointed out to Tria that some children struggle with “letting go” of their parents who enter new relationships, but Tria assured that he only wants Picache to be happy.
“Mama’s boy ako pero siyempre she deserves her own happiness din, di ba? I mean, ‘yung pagkakaroon ng relationship with someone else doesn’t remove the fact that she is still my mom,” he told Brillantes.
(I’m a mama’s boy but of course she deserves her own happiness as well, right? I mean, her having a relationship with someone else doesn’t remove the fact that she is still my mom.)
“She deserves love. I just want my mom to be happy kaya support ako sa kanya, support ako sa kanila (so I support her, I support them),” Tria added.
Tria also admitted that he was not surprised when Manzano confirmed his relationship with Picache last month.
“Alam ko naman na nililigawan ni tito Edu ‘yung mom ko. Nu’ng nalaman ko na nabalita na, ‘Ah, ok, good, nabalita na. Sana ok yung reaction ng mga tao,'” he said. (I already knew tito Edu was courting my mom. When I found out that it was on the news [I thought], “Ah, ok, good, it’s on the news now. I hope the people’s reaction is ok.”)
Manzano confirmed his relationship with Picache in a conversation with TV5 broadcaster Cheryl Cosim last Nov. 19. The actor’s son Luis confessed that the revelation caught him off guard but he can see that Manzano is happy with Picache.
Nio is Picache’s son with her former partner Gary Tria. Picache and Gary separated in 2006. Meanwhile, Manzano was previously married to actresses Vilma Santos and Maricel Soriano. JB
