Saab Magalona seemed overjoyed as she announced that Pancho, her eldest son diagnosed with cerebral palsy, has been accepted to a regular school and is set to start his schooling.

Magalona revealed this while showing glimpses of Pancho visiting his new school, through a video on her Instagram page last Sunday, July 9. Pancho was accompanied by Magalona and his dad, musician Jim Bacarro.


“Pancho has been accepted into a regular school! It was recommended by his neurodevelopmental pediatrician that he surround himself with his peers and go to school,'” she said in the caption.


“As a mom with birthing trauma, I was skeptical and I thought of all the excuses for him to just stay home,” she admitted.

Magalona also underscored that although she was initially skeptical about sending Pancho to school, she knows it is for the best not only for her child but for her and Bacarro as well.

“I learned that parents with birthing trauma have a hard time sending their kids to school and sometimes we can even get competitive with the teachers. It’s been a struggle but I know in my heart this is what’s good for Pancho,” she stated. “This is good for me and Jim, too.”

“[Please] pray that his first year of schooling goes well,” she added. “Thank you, virtual ninangs and ninongs!”

Magalona and Bacarro welcomed Pancho in 2018. Magalona gave birth to the twins at the time—Pancho and Luna—but sadly, only Pancho survived after being in critical condition.

In 2022, Magalona admitted she blamed herself after learning that Pancho would suffer disabilities, but she stressed that her eldest son contributed to her growth and brought out a better version of her.

Aside from Pancho, the couple has another son, 3-year-old Vito.  /ra
