A comedian and TV host on-camera, GMA-7 mainstay Jose Manalo mirrored off-cam his fatherly love for his children on a recent interview with showbiz website PEP.ph.
Manalo headlined the recent feat of her daughter Myki who just passed the doctor’s licensure examination.
“Siyempre, para makapagpatapos ka ng isang bata, kahit hindi nila ako kasama, pero ipinakita nila na yung taong nagpapaaral sa amin, bibigyan namin ng karangalan. Nakakatuwa yun,” Manalo explained.
Myki is a double-degree holder as she finished her BS Psychology course at De La Salle Univeristy way back 2012 before setting off with her Doctor of Medicine at the Far Eastern University-Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation (FEU-NRMF) Institute of Medicine.
When asked whether Myki can cure him, Manalo jokingly responded,
“Siguro gagamutin niya ang utak ko.”
Meanwhile, about his two sons Nicco and Benj, Manalo is also quick to note that they are already making names following his steps in the showbiz world.
“Okey sila, natutuwa ako. Sabi ko nga, noong nag-i-start sila, noong nag-aaral pa lang, sabi ko nga, ‘Kung gusto niyong mag-artista, hindi ko kayo tutulungan. Gumawa kayo. ..”
“Siguro dahil doon ako nanggaling, hindi ako bigla na lang nandito,” Manalo reacted.
He said that he emphasized the need to create their own names and be known not only as his children but because of their talent.
“At saka, ayokong malalaman na lang na, ‘Uy, anak pala ni Jose.’
“Ayokong kukunin ang anak ko kasi anak ko.
“So sabi ko, ‘Gumawa kayo ng pangalan kung gusto niyo.’
“Pero siyempre, sa maayos na paraan, at ako ang unang-unang matutuwa para sa kanila. At ipinapakita naman nila ngayon.
“Masaya ako sa mga nangyayari sa buhay nila ngayon.”
It can be remembered that Manalo parted ways with his wife Anna Lyn Manalo, who now takes care of their five children.
