Doesn’t he look just like a mini-Meryll?
She has years of experience to prove her talents. That’s on top of being the daughter of long time television host Willie Revillame and Bec Bec Soriano, as well as the niece and mentee of Diamond Star Maricel Soriano. But it seems that Meryll Soriano’s favorite part in life is being the mother of Elijah.
The 10-year-old kid is her son with now ex-husband Bernard Palanca. Now, despite raising him as a single mother, his life is nothing short of love. The actress’ Instagram is filled with their photos together.
They goof off sometimes and dress up either for birthdays. They can look fierce as if posing for an editorial photoshoot. Then there are those aww moments of Eli kissing his mother’s cheeks, and Meryll just looks like she’s in heaven.
More than these posts, however, the actress shared on Tonight with Boy Abunda that they have an honest and open relationship. They’re best friends, “We can talk about anything without judgement,” she described. Although she still has to play an authoritative role sometimes to discipline him.
She talked about how they are so verbal when it comes to each other that Eli once said, “I’m ready to have a dad”. This caught Meryll completely off guard, and her only respond was “boyfriend nga wala ako, dad pa?”
They’ve also talked about the young kid possible entering the entertainment industry. She revealed that he really wants to follow her footsteps and has even shown impressive potential. There were times that Eli would cry as if on cue which only proves that the talents are in his blood. But Meryll hopes to make any further plans only after high school. For now, Eli’s only role will be a son.
