Pinoy Boxing champion and incumbent Senator Manny Pacquiao and Jinkee’s eldest son, Jimuel Pacquiao, has recently graduated from high school at Brent International School in Biñan, Laguna.
The proud couple took to social media to share some moments from the graduation ceremony.
Manny wrote in his Facebook post, “We are so proud of you Jimuel!”
On the other hand, Jinkee also shared a photo of herself, her husband Manny, and her son Jimuel wearing a toga on her Instagram account.
She then captioned her post with, “Proud and Blessed Mom and Dad! #ourgraduate #Godisgoodandgreat #grateful”.
Followed by another Instagram post that says, “Indescribable feeling,” where the proud mom shared more photos taken during her son’s graduation.
Many netizens also congratulated Jimuel and left comments on the post:
“Congratulations dear JIMUEL . A soon to be FILIPINO SUPERSTAR. Pawwwwwwwnn!!! Amen!”
“Congratulations, God bless you even more!” “Congrats Jimuel, Jinkee and Manny . ! Thanking God with you!”
“Congrats to the Pacquiao family!”
Jimuel recently made headlines as he and actress and former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Heaven Peralejo announced their relationship.
The 18-year-old eldest son of the Pacquiao family has shown interest in pursuing a career in boxing and wants to follow in his father’s footsteps.
In his first amateur fight last April, Jimuel had won by knockout against his opponent Miguel Egan during the second round of their bout held at Amoranto Sports Complex in Quezon City. He used a 1-2 combo to put Miguel to the seat of his pants.
The younger Pacquiao was very happy with the win, especially after undergoing a month of intensive training.
“I won, mom and dad!” he said after the win.
In February, Jimuel also fought his schoolmate Lucas Carson in a two-round sparring session and also knocked him down in 2 rounds.
The world-champion father was hesitant at first to let his eldest son follow in his footsteps, but Manny has now been supportive of his son’s dream.
In fact, he was previously seen giving pointers such as the right footwork, defense, evading, and combination punches while his son was on training.
Jimuel said that he really wants to represent the Philippines in international competitions, “I’m trying to make a name for myself, I want to represent the Philippines.”
“Palagi kong sinasabi na, I’ll train properly, magjo-jogging ako, magpa-practice. Nakailang ulit din bago ko sila mapapayag,” he added.
