For Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach growing up with two fathers gave her twice more life lessons.
Pia shared how she loves both her biological father and stepfather “equally.” The two men in her life has imparted so many great things in her life, she said.
Pia explained with Push,, “I love them both equally. With my biological father, he’s always taught me how to be punctual number one and then also the value of money.”
“At such a young age he already taught me how to save, how to open my own bank account, how to check my balance, how to withdraw, how to deposit. Like that’s very important to him. And then also his love for food,” she added.
For her stepfather, Pia shared how she learned patience and understanding.
She continued, “He’s been so patient with our family, given also na medyo financially struggling kami at the beginning but he was so helpful. And also my stepdad has seen it with his own eyes, how I was as a waitress in the UK before tapos ngayon, ‘yung last na nagkita kami yung unveiling ng wax figure ko sa Madame Tussaud’s.”
“So he really cried kasi nakita niya how everything happened and I’m just happy that I make both of them proud in some way,” Pia said.
Years ago when Pia won the Miss Universe crown, she once shared how she feels sorry that her biological father was no longer here to see her.
She also recalled how her biological father used to spoil her, buying her dolls and treating her like a princess.
Pia said she was a daddy’s girl; adding that she wish she had more time with him.
