Someone say it louder for the people at the back because it’s hard to believe that this beautiful woman is actually Tony Labrusca’s mother. Angel Jones is on her way to being 40 and yet she is as fit as anyone in their 20s. In fact, she won a fitness contest last April to bag the “ageless” category. The best thing about her, however, is the confidence she wears at her age and as a mother.
“Mapapagalitan ako ng nanay ko,” this was her immediate thought she confessed on Magandang Buhay. She was only 16 years old when she became pregnant with Tony. As happy as she was to become a mother, she couldn’t ignore her fear and worry for the massive responsibility that was coming her way, “because nobody knows how to be a parent.”
When her baby boy was finally born, then significant other Boom Labrusca stood by her side. She revealed that the actor wanted to get married, but she personally felt hesitant because she knew they were much too young. They decided to live together first to see whether a relationship could work between them.
Unfortunately, Boom eventually chose to prioritize his career, “Kapag babae kasi we’re always gonna be naturally connected to our children. Kapag lalaki parang mas madali sa kanila to do their own thing.” Angel didn’t particularly like this decision, but at the end of the day she had to respect his choices.
Despite his parents separating, Tony still maintains a good relationship with both of them. Angel talked about how she knows the importance of a family whatever the case may be, “I don’t believe in broken families, because I don’t believe in perfect families. I think a family is a family.”

Now that Tony is older, he couldn’t help but get emotional because of his role in their little unit, “Maybe my parents weren’t able to provide a house when we were young, but He’s given me the chance to be able to provide that for my family now.” The young actor shared that he is amazed at God’s work. Even if his parents aren’t together anymore, he knows not to waste this opportunity of giving back to them.
