In recognizing Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto’s exemplary leadership in handling concerns affecting the city and his constituents and his genuine concern for their welfare amidst the COVID-19 scare gripping the nation, one person remains his strength and inspiration.
If we admire Mayor Vico for his actions, the more should we honor the individual who never left his side, raising him splendidly with the values and principles he carried throughout his life, and of course loves him unconditionally—his mom, Coney Reyes.
As we see in this gallery, Coney has been a supportive and loving mom and has been ever present in all the milestones in his life. In return, we see Vico not missing a chance to spend quality moments with his mom in travels abroad or in important gatherings. We could also observe how Vico becomes his mom’s “date” in many such instances, going to these events together.
Even during Coney’s intimate interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda, Vico was spotted in the audience, supporting his mom, beaming and smiling to every utterance she makes on the show.

And more so, when Vico campaigned and eventually won the Pasig mayoralty race, Coney was the wind beneath his wings, encouraging and boosting his morale in his battle against a formidable political clan that ruled the city for decades.
This closeness is certainly rooted in the endearing way Coney took care of Vico, and how she expresses her undying love for him. In an interview with the Magandang Buhay momshies, Vico and half-brother LA Mumar described and even mimicked Coney’s way of parenting.
It is so heartwarming to see and feel this unbreakable bond of mother and son, and how this made Vico become the new age politician Pasiguenos and the whole nation adulate right now.
