We all grew up admiring our mothers for their grace and strength – and all beautiful things about them. They are the perfect role models. While science highlights genes as the hallmark of passing down qualities from the mother to child, we’d like to believe we can exactly copy our mothers’ beautiful characteristics if we really want to. So, we asked these Kapamilya stars one quality they like to inherit from their moms!
Heaven Peralejo adores her Mommy Luanne so much. She can even talk about how perfect she is! Therefore, she would like to mirror her whole being – just everything her Mommy Luanne is, especially her loving, forgiving, and strong heart.
“I believe she has this loving heart, this forgiving heart. Kung paano niya harapin lahat ng problems sa buhay, ‘yun ang gusto kong matutunan sa kanya. She has a strong heart and I wish na ‘yun ang makuha ko,” Heaven related.
Kate Alejandrino likewise admires her mom’s brave heart and she hopes to carve her own path like her mom did.
Janine Gutierrez dotes on her mom Lotlot de Leon’s resilience. “Ang dami na niyang pinagdaanan sa buhay niya pero naging matatag pa rin siya and hindi nawala ‘yung sweetness niya at ‘yung care niya sa lahat ng tao,” said Janine, hoping she can copy her mom’s admirable strength.
For Director Dan Villegas, her mother’s generosity makes her stand out. And he wants to be as giving and thoughtful as her.
Paulo Angeles wants to learn his mom’s baked mac recipe, apart from her courage.
Albie Casino grew up witnessing his mother’s little acts of charity. She’d always prepare meals for their village guards. As he moves to his own place, Albie learned to mimic this cordial act, so he also shares food delivery to the condo building’s security guards.
‘Patient’ is how AC Bonifacio described her Mommy Cherry, who took a leap of faith to support her showbiz career. “Nag-sacrifice si Mommy kahit ‘di niya alam kung may mangyayari talaga. I think I’ve been able to learn that throughout the way.” This lovely trait helps AC navigate her taxing journey to stardom.
Admittedly short-tempered, Zaijian Jaranilla now trains himself to be as patient as his mom, so he’s already loaded up with calmness once he starts a family.
Rita Avila wishes she inherited her mother’s good singing voice. Sheryn Regis hopes she can be cool like her mom, who never judged her decisions in life. Barbie Imperial admits she is a younger version of her Mommy Bing – from physical beauty to their strong, courageous hearts.
Life is short, they say. So make the most of your time shaping yourself into the person you want to be – not exactly like your mom, but at least take inspiration from the best qualities you like about her. It would also be a good way to preserve her legacy.
