Jinkee Pacquiao and mother-in-law Dionisia “Mommy Dion” Pacquiao used to keep each other at arm’s length until they learned to accept one another for the sake of the man they both love, Manny Pacquiao. The two women shared on Startalk yesterday how, from hardly speaking to each other, they were able to turn their relationship from mere acceptance to love.
A laughing Jinkee reminisced, “Alam ko naman na medyo masalita siya.”
“Pero natanggap na niya. Sabi ko kasi magsanay na siya,” smiled Mommy Dion.
Jinkee knew that she had finally been accepted by Mommy Dion when she felt a warmth from her mother-in-law that she hadn’t felt before. “Pag nag-uusap kami, masaya na kami,” smiled Jinkee.
“Bigla lang,” Dion smilingly admitted. “Nabigla ako kasi wala sa isip ko na mag-asawa si Manny. Bata pa.”
