Manny Pacquiao shared during his recent interview with DZMM Teleradyo that he and his wife, Jinkee Pacquiao had a similar experience with the newlyweds, Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo whose mother is not in favor of her daughter’s relationship with the actor.
“Itong Sarah and Matteo, na-experience namin ni Jinkee ‘yan…katulad ng naranasan nila ngayon”
But for their story, it was the boxing icon and senator’s mother, Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao who is against the wedding as she wanted her son to marry another woman, and not Jinkee, his now-wife.
“Engaged kasi ako before Jinkee. ‘Yung ka-engaged ko, ‘yun ang gusto ng mama ko. So, nakilala ko ‘tong si Jinkee. ‘Tapos noong sabi ko na magpakasal kami ni Jinkee, eh ayaw ng mama ko”
During the interview, Manny also recalled that it reached a point that when he had to ask for Jinkee’s parents permission to allow him to marry their daughter, he was only accompanied by his sister.
This feud between him and mom even lasted until his wedding day where “Mommy D” decided not to attend. Manny shared,
“Noong nagpakasal kami ni Jinkee wala ‘yung mama ko. Ang kasama ko lang is ‘yung kapatid ko na babae kasi ayaw ng mama ko, ayaw ng magulang ko.”
He also gave a piece of advice to the newly married celebrity couple not to hate their parents or in-laws because of this, but instead they must prove them that they made the right decision by living a happy married life.
“Isa lang ang masasabi ko sa kanila –kahit ganun pa man ‘yung mga magulang o mga biyenan ninyo ay mahalin ninyo. Huwag kayong magtanim ng galit kasi ang mga magulang ay dapat minamahal at iniintindi.
The fighting senator continued, “Kung mag-aaway kayo at magiging magulo iyong pamilya ninyo, ang lalabas na tama eh iyong magulang ninyo. So ipakita ninyo na karapat-dapat kayong dalawa at masaya kayong dalawa hanggang sa magkaroon kayo ng anak.”
Luckily for their part, they managed to gain Mommy Dionisia’s trust afterwards, and was able to build a good relationship with her daughter-in-law, Jinkee. This was shown when Jinkee and his mom did a recent vlog together that captured the attention of the people because of their undeniable closeness.
