MANILA, Philippines – Luigi Muhlach, son of actor Aga Muhlach with actress Janice de Belen, became emotional on “The Buzz” on Sunday as he talked about how grateful he is to his father.
In a Father’s Day interview, Luigi, who has two kids of his own, took the opportunity to thank his famous dad for always being there and guiding him while he is growing up.
In an interview with “The Buzz” host Charlene Gonzales, who is Aga’s wife, Luigi said he may not have had the chance to live with his father while he was young but he said he still looks up to him as a role model.
“My dad, I really look up to him. Sobrang napakabait niyang tao talaga and he’s very humble. Idol ko talaga dad ko, naging inspiration talaga siya sa akin. He doesn’t know that kasi I never had the chance to tell him that but he inspires me,” he said,
While there have been rough times in the past, Luigi assured Aga that he has always listened to all his advice.
“Pa, I never had the chance to grow up with you. I want to let you know na lahat ng mga sinasabi mo sa akin ever since, tumatatak sa akin 'yun. All the good things you told me. I’m really happy,” he said.
Luigi said he would also want to become like his father when he grows older.
“I was never given the chance to be like you. I look up to you, gusto ko maging parang ikaw hindi dahil ikaw si Aga Muhlach or you’re financially stable or you’re famous, but my dad is a really good guy. I really want to be like him kasi ang dami niyang taong natulungan sa buhay niya. Ang daming nagmamahal sa kanya,” he said.
According to Luigi, he values his relationship with his family so much because at the end of the day, they will be the ones who will be there for him in times of need.
“Family is really important. Wala ka nang ibang tatakbuhan kundi pamilya mo. Of course siyempre nung teenager ka gusto mo friends. Pero sa huli talaga, pamilya mo ang pupuntahan mo,” he said.
Luigi also shared his Father’s Day message for Aga.
“Happy Father’s Day. I’m really happy na sobrang okay na okay tayo ngayon. Sometimes when you tell me things and you think I don’t listen to you, Pa I really do. Tumatatak talaga sa puso ko iyon. I’m really thankful na kahit hindi tayo nagsama noon, nabago natin, naayos natin. I love you Pa,” he said.
As for Gonzales, she told Luigi that she has always considered Luigi her own.
“For me you will always be my son. I may not be your biological mother but in my heart and in my mind, you are my son. I love you,” she said.
