De Leon said she and her siblings have been waiting for this day to come to be reunited with her.
“We are all very excited to see her…Sobrang saya siyempre kasi ito na iyong pinakamatagal nating hinihintay,” she said.
“We’ve been waiting for her for a long time. Actually [noong] huli naman kami nagkausap ni mommy, talagang gustung gusto naman niya na umuwi noon pa. Kaya lang, siyempre naghihintay tayo ng magandang projects na ma-offer sa kanya and finally ito na ‘yon. I’m sure she’s excited.”
De Leon, however, said she won’t be able to fetch Aunor at the airport because of a prior commitment.
“Nagshoo-shoot po kami ng Star Cinema movie, ‘yung ‘Way Back Home.’ Tinatapos pa po namin ‘yun,” she explained.
Meanwhile, de Leon shrugged off rumors saying that she felt bad because her family was not the first to know about the superstar’s comeback.
“Alam niyo ‘wag na lang po nating pag-usapan kung ano man ang sinasabi ng ibang tao. Ang pinakaimportante eh darating si mommy. Everybody’s happy na darating na siya. I’m sure she’s very happy. Kami ring mga anak niya,” she said.
“Kahit na sino pa ang unang nakaalam o huling nakaalam o na sa gitna ang pagkakaalam, ang pinakaimportante ang pagbabalik niya.”
Actress Nora Aunor boarded Philippine Airlines flight 103 at 10:30 p.m. on Sunday. She is expected to arrive at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport at 3:40 a.m. on Tuesday. (MNS)
