MANILA, Philippines – A teary-eyed Angeline Quinto said she is eager to meet Veronica Tolentino,who has agreed to undergo a DNA test just to prove her claims that the singer is really her daughter.

In a taped interview with “The Buzz,” Quinto said she is really grateful that Tolentino is willing to cooperate because it has been her dream to meet her biological mom since she was a child.

“Mas mabuti po kasi kung magpapa-DNA test po siya, gusto ko rin naman 'yon. Ayaw ko na po palampasin ang pagkakataon na ito na ang tagal-tagal ko pong hinahanap ang tunay kong nanay,” she said.

Quinto said some of Tolentino’s claims seem familiar to her.

“Medyo [familiar] po kasi taga-Pangasinan po ang umampon sa akin. 'Yung ibang kamag-anak ko po nasa Pangasinan din. Iyon po kasi ang probinsya namin. Parang may naririnig po ako noon [na Jun] pero hindi ko na maalala talaga eh. Siyempre kapag bata po di ba hindi mo na masyadong matandaan. Pero parang familiar po sa akin ang Jun,” she explained.

Quinto said she also felt different when she saw the picture of Tolentino because they seem to have the same eyes and nose.

“Nagulat nga po ako noong sinabi sa akin. Sabi ko bakit ganun ang naramdaman ko? Parang kinabahan po kasi ako noon. Kung papansinin po parang magkahawig po ang mata namin at ilong,” she said.

Quinto has yet to meet Tolentino. However, the singer said if Tolentino is really her biological mom, she would do everything to take care of her.

“Ms. Veronica Tolentino po, nagpapasalamat po ako kasi nandyan kayo kahit po hindi pa tayo nagkakakilala. Kung alam niyo lang po kung gaano ako ka-excited na makilala kayo sa personal. Ipagdadasal ko po yon talaga. Kung sakaling kayo nga po ang tunay kong nanay, huwag po kayong mag-alala hindi ko naman po kayo pababayaan,” she said.

Quinto also assured her adoptive family that nothing will change even if she meets her real mother.

“Kung sakali naman po na siya ang talagang tunay kong nanay, sa pamilya ko po na nagpalaki sa akin, wala naman pong magbabago doon. Hindi ko naman po hahayaan na masaktan si Mama. Hindi niya po kasi alam ito lahat eh,” she said.

“Alam ko naman po na maiintindihan iyon ng tatay ko, lola ko at mama ko kasi alam naman po nila na bata pa lang ako, yun po ang gusto kong malaman. Kung nasaan po talaga yung tunay kong nanay. Basta makilala ko lang yung tunay kong nanay. Yun lang naman po ang kailangan ko eh. Lagi ko pong dinadasal, makilala ko lang po ang tunay kong nanay,” Quinto added.
