Known for being one of the most versatile actors in the entertainment industry, Joko Diaz proves that there is more to him than portraying strong and macho-like characters on screen.
The Kadenang Ginto star is also a loving father, and shares a special bond with his daughter Ashley. Despite his busy schedule, the two obviously love to spend quality time together, whether it’s at home or a trip to the mall. Ashley and her dad seem to be foodies as well, and like to try different types of restaurants with various cuisines. Even if he does have the tendency to be a strict father, you can tell that they don’t take themselves too seriously and like to take goofy photos. But Joko has always been a hands-on father, because even back then when his daughter was a toddler, he would always make time to be with her. Aww… Daddy goals!
WATCH: Joko as a father according to his daughter Ashley
In Joko’s recent guesting in Magandang Buhay, his daughter joined him on the set and described to the momshies how he’s really as a father. According to Ashley, her dad is nothing like the characters he plays on TV, and added that Joko is quite funny and has a sense of humor. “Very funny siya. Malayo po ‘yung personalty niya sa lahat ng nagiging role niya sa TV.” she elaborated. She also emphasized that Joko can get at bit clingy from time to time and checks up on her, to which the actor replied should be the case. “I have to check,” Joko stressed. Ashley gave a sweet message to Joko and said “I am very proud that you are my father. I want more bonding moments with you. I love you”.
Who would have thought that the Joko that we see on screen would have such a soft spot, let alone for his daughter. Not only is he an astounding actor, but the perfect dad as well!
