MANILA – Kim Chiu’s father is hoping the actress will never get tired of helping and caring for her siblings.

In a recorded interview with “Buzz ng Bayan” which aired on Sunday, William Chiu Jr. said he is proud of his youngest daughter for being a responsible adult, especially after the actress's mother died last year.

“Simula nung nawala ang nanay niya, sobra na siyang caring. Nag-aalala lagi siya sa mga kapatid niya. Para siyang isang magulang na, nag-mature na siya. Matulungin siya sa mga kapatid niya. Natatapos nila ang pag-aaral nila. Nagkaroon sila ng magandang trabaho,” he said.

William said he will pray that his children will look after one another because he believes families should have a strong foundation.

Asked if he has any wish for Kim, who turned 24 last April 19, William said, “Kim always take care of yourself. Huwag magpabaya sa pagkain. Huwag ka magbago. Be simple always. Huwag ka sana magsawa tumulong sa mga kapatid mo. Alam ko naman na sobrang mabait ka sa kanila.”

William further told Kim, “Always remember, we are your fans. Love you.”

Late last month, William left Mindoro for Manila to surprise Kim on her birthday.

“Hindi niya alam na may surprise party kami sa bahay. Pagpasok niya akala niya nakalimutan na namin lahat 'yung birthday niya. Pagpasok niya ng pinto, biglang marami kaming nagkantahan ng happy birthday. Umiyak siya,” he said.

William said there’s nothing that could make him happier than to see all his children together.
