MANILA — VALERIE Concepcion says a friend from way back, a basketball player, remains to this day her ardent suitor. They are quietly dating, she admits. But there is nothing special and official between them yet.
“I have to prepare a good future for my daughter, Fiona (who is four years old). Para, halimbawang dumating ang araw na mag-asawa ako, hindi ko na kailangang iasa pa ang mga pangangailangan ni Fiona sa aking mapapangasawa.
“Although, of course, ang pipiliin kong lalaking maging pangalawang ama ng aking anak ay ‘yung mamahalin at aalagaan siyang parang tunay na anak.”
