Kapamilya singer and actress Angeline Quinto gave an update about mother, Sylvia Quinto, who she fondly calls Mama Bob, after undergoing an operation involving the replacement of her heart’s pacemaker.
Last Saturday, July 20, the 29-year-old singer and actress happily announced through Instagram stories that the operation of her Mama Bob was a success as she shared a photo from the hospital room, with the caption “Praise God.”
The Queen of Teleserye Theme Songs also asked for prayers from her fans on Twitter, hours before the said operation.
“Today na po ang operation ni Mama Bob para sa replacement ng pacemaker niya sa puso after 10 years. Sana po isama niyo ang Mama Bob ko sa mga prayers niyo pati rin po ang mga Doctors. Maraming Salamat po,” Angeline said via Twitter.
The talented singer-actress is known to be very close to her Mama Bob, who is her adoptive mother, there were times that Angeline would bring her mother with her during her tapings so she could personally take care of her. Based on a report, it was only in 2012 when she met her biological mother.
In a previous interview on ABS-CBN’s lifestyle-morning talk show Magandang Buhay, the loving daughter said that there wouldn’t be an Angeline Quinto right now if not for her Mama Bob.
“Kung wala po si Mama Bob, siguro wala rin pong Angeline ngayon,” Angeline said.
“Kaya sabi ko sa sarili ko, ipaparamdam ko kay Mama Bob ang dating pangarap niya lang. Sisiguraduhin ko na mararanasan niya ang magandang buhay,” she added.
Angeline is dubbed as the “Pop Superstar,” she rose to fame after she was declared as the first grand winner of Star Power: Sharon’s Search For The Next Female Pop Superstar in 2011. Prior to that, she also participated in several singing competitions in her town, but lost most of them.
One of the major competitions she joined was Star For A Night hosted by the Asia’s Songbird, Regine Velasquez in 2002, where Angeline was a finalist and she competed with Sarah Geronimo who emerged as the grand winner.
