Kapamilya celebrity mom Pokwang or Marietta Subong in real life is definitely one of the prominent comedians in the entertainment business. She’s currently enjoying her life with her longtime partner, American actor Lee O’Brian, whom she now has a 2-year-old daughter named Malia Francine.
Currently, the comedienne-actress is busy with her showbiz career being a regular co-host in “Banana Sundae” and managing their family’s food business. It was only last year when she announced that she’s finally fulfilling her dream to open her own restaurant.
Aside from her child with O’Brian, Pokwang also has an older daughter from her previous relationship, Ria Mae Subong. Based on other reports, it was in 1996 when she entered a relationship with her eldest daughter’s father who is a Japanese national.
Despite being busy with all her showbiz and personal commitments, her fans and followers admire her as she still manages to always make time for her family and keep them as her top priority. A lot of them also noticed her closeness with her eldest daughter.
Many were able to see how this mother and daughter treat each other like friends in a video June last year, where Pokwang pulled a prank on her daughter involving the latter’s “dream car.”
Pokwang first shared a photo of a toy “Jeep 4×4” on her Instagram account with the caption narrating their convo about Mae’s dream car.
“Me: Anak ano dream car mo?
Mae: Jeep 4×4
Me: ok nak ako bahala wait ka lang ng one week.
Mae: weeehh??? O ayan na anak ha lahat gagawin ko matupad lang pangarap mo kasi mahal na mahal kita #Mae‘sdreamcarJeep”
In the same post, the 49-year-old comedienne-actress also included a short video where Pokwang can be heard encouraging her daughter to go outside the house and check her new car park in their garage.
Mae had a good laugh upon seeing her mom’s gift, which is a red 4×4 Jeep in the form of a toddler-size.
