Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao has no qualms if her son, boxing icon and Sarangani Representative Manny Pacman Pacquiao, does not approve of having a romantic relationship with a 40-year-old man.
“Isa lang ang humahadlang, si Manny lang. Sabi niya sa akin ‘Ayoko sana (mag-boyfriend ka)’. Wala siyang magagawa (kasi) gustong-gusto ko ‘to,” she said.
She met her boyfriend named Michael at a videoke party, saying, “Nakita niya lang akong (kumakanta noon).”
Michael,whom Mommy D calls “honey,” was her escort during her 65th birthday party last May.
The boxing champ’s mom said that Michael plans to work abroad to prove that he is not after her wealth.
Mommy D even recalled him telling her, “Sa ngayon tiisin mo lang muna, ’di ako umaasa palagi sayo kasi babae ka.”
The Pacmom said that they’re not ready to take the plunge just yet.
“Wala kaming plano pa (magpa-kasal). Ang importante, nag-enjoy kaming dalawa – mahal niya ako, mahal ko din siya,” she maintained.
Referring to Michael, she said, “I love you honey. Magpaka-strong ka jan ingat ka. Mwah!” (MNS)
