MANILA, May 15 (Mabuhay) -– Singer-actress Sarah Geronimo admitted she had questioned why her mom Divine Geronimo was very strict with her and her siblings.
Geronimo said she was also once confused when it comes to her mom being overprotective.
“There was a time na parang confused ka rin kasi parang sana nalagpasan ko na ang stage na iyan. Iniisip mo, ‘Sobra ba silang protective? Ano ba ang dahilan bakit sobra silang bawal ganito, bawal ganyan?’” she said.
But Geronimo said she eventually realized that her mom only wants the best for her.
“As I age, as I experienced things, as I experienced pain, naiintindihan ko kung bakit ganun. Nagpapasalamat ako ng sobra sobra sobra na ganun siya, protective,” she said.
The 24-year-old Kapamilya singer said she knows of other parents who are even more protective than her mom.
“May nakita pa akong ibang mothers na sobra talagang strikta. Si mommy hindi siya ganun. Sobra lang talaga niya kaming mahal,” she said.
According to Geronimo, she is dedicating all her success to her parents.
“Marami pa akong pangarap para sa pamilya namin, para rin sa sarili ko. Kung ano man ang mayroon ako ngayon sa career ko, gusto ko naman maging proud siya na anak niya ako. Hindi si Sarah Geronimo na artista, kundi bilang tao,” she said.
Geronimo’s mom made headlines in the past, notably after it was reported that she was the one who discouraged actor Gerald Anderson from pursuing the singer.
Earlier reports said Geronimo and Anderson ended their special relationship because of the singer’s parents. Anderson started courting Geronimo February last year. (MNS)
