Jinkee Pacquiao shared she approves of her son Jimuel’s girlfriend, Heaven Peralejo.
The wife of boxer-turned senator Manny Pacquiao said she only has one advice when it comes to her sons’ lovelife. For Jinkee, faith and religion play a big part in a couple’s relationship.
Jinkee shared with Pep, “Tinanong ko siya [Jimuel] kung Christian siya [Heaven]. Ganun lang.”
“Kasi ‘yung parang advice ko sa kanila na, ‘Maghanap kayo ng Christian,’ “Yung Christian talaga na malapit kay Lord, kasi ‘yun, importante talaga ‘yun sa akin,” she said.
Jinkee shared she found these qualities with Heaven Peralejo.
“Ayun, ganun din naman sina Heaven. Mabait namang bata si Heaven. Nakakasama ko naman siya,” Jinkee said.
Being a billionaire’s wife, Jinkie was asked if the financial status of her son’s girlfriend is important.
The 40-year-old mom exclaimed, “Ay, no, no! Not necessarily. Walang ganun.”
She also defended Heaven; saying, “Kilala ko naman si Heaven, kasi napapanood ko siya noon sa Pinoy Big Brother. Sinubaybayan ko siya.”
And while Jinkee admitted she doesn’t intrude in Jimuel’s relationship, she does meddle when it comes to his boxing and artist dreams.
Jinkee said, “Yung sa boxing lang niya ako nangingialam. Kasi, ayaw ko talagang mag-boxing siya.”
“At saka’ yung sa pag-aartista. Sa ngayon ay ayaw ko pa talaga, dahil ang gusto ko ay makatapos muna sila ng pag-aaral,” she said.
Meanwhile, Jimuel has defended his girlfriend. The former PBB housemate has been enduring criticisms online, including being called a “gold digger.”
Jimuel reacted and said, “They don’t really know who she is, what she’s like. Ako, kilala ko po siya, si Heaven, kasi girlfriend ko siya.”
“So, ang masasabi ko lang po ay… no way, she’s not! There’s no way na ganun siya,” he said.
