Along with his rollicking It’s Showtime family, Jhong Hilario has never failed to make us laugh with his hilarious utterances and banters with his co-hosts, as well as amaze us with his impeccable dancing talent at the same time, every noontime.
And he apparently elicits the same vibe when it comes to his beloved family in real life, especially to his parents Tatay Virgilio and Nanay Nelly, who are both smiling ear-to-ear in his photos with them or their admirable pictures that he posted on his Instagram account, which we collated in this gallery.
Despite his busy schedule, since we all know that he’s also serves as a councilor in Makati City apart from his on-cam stints as a host and actor, Jhong still makes sure to spend quality time with them whenever possible by taking them to vacations, attending various events with them, and treating them to double dates with his gorgeous girlfriend
Besides, the 44-year-old actor-politician never fails to greet them on special occasions by posting tributes and expressing his outpouring love for them on IG. In Tatay Virgilio’s birthday last October, he called him his “forever idol”, while he wrote a lengthy and funny caption for his Mother’s Day greeting for Nanay Nelly.
“Sya si Nelly. Number 1 fan ko! sya nag palaki saming sampung magkakapatid... magaling at maalaga... marami ng opera at naramdamang sakit kaya naman marami syang alam na gamot kaya ang tawag namin sa kanya Butika... pag may sakit kami sa kanya kami magtatanong ng gamot... "Nelly Pharmacy,” he said.
Jhong also conveyed how blessed he is to have them as parents in his short yet sweet message for them on their 57th wedding anniversary.
“Happy 57th Anniversary! I am so blessed to have you both... Thank you Lord God for giving me the best Parents... I love you both! #VirNelly57,” he wrote.
There may be times that they have to be apart because of his work, but the Sample King makes sure to still make them happy by heeding to some of their little requests. In one instance, he uploaded a snap of his Nanay Nelly who got overjoyed after having the chance to talk with her favorite artists and his FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano co-stars Coco Martin and Yassi Pressman.
