Being a handsome hunk and bachelor many ladies would have a crush on doesn’t mean he can’t be sentimental. Halik star Daniel Matsunaga proves this to us, as he proudly makes a statement in his every move that he is one certified family man.
Daniel was born in Brazil’s capital Brasilia to a Brazilian mother Geralda Silva and a Japanese-Brazilian father, Paulo Mitsuo Matsunaga. He is a loving brother to model Vanessa Matsunaga-Sunga and his youngest sibling, Guilherme Matsunaga.
On Magandang Buhay, Vanessa described how Daniel is as a brother. Back then, it was just the two of them living in the Philippines and as siblings, they have to work hard together to provide for their everyday needs. Vanessa shared that Daniel is such a responsible brother. He helps her in the household chores, and also does very well when it comes to cooking.
In a separate interview on the same show, Daniel showed us how deeply he loves his family. In that said episode, it was momshie Jolina Magdangal who asked: “Personally, ano pa ba ang kinakatakutan mo na mawala sa’yo at bakit?” In a heartbeat, Daniel answered that the one thing he fears to lose above anything else in this world is none other than his family. “They are everything to me”, Daniel added teary-eyed. Unsuccessful in containing his tears, Daniel became very emotional as he gives his short yet heartfelt message to his family saying: “Alam niyo na naman ‘e, mahal ko kayo.”
Indeed, no matter how tough or cool we can be on the outside, our families will always hold a soft spot in our hearts.
