MANILA – Angelica Panganiban and celebrity couple Melai Cantiveros and Jason Francisco have indeed moved on from their widely reported misunderstanding last year.
On Saturday, Panganiban attended the baptism of the couple’s daughter as a "ninang."
In an interview with “The Buzz” aired on Sunday, Panganiban said she feels honored that the showbiz couple chose her to be a godparent of their first born.
“Sobra akong happy and proud na kinuha nila akong ninang,” she said. “Matagal na okay na. Last year pa, nagkaintindihan naman na. Nagkaroon lang ng misunderstanding noon.”
This was echoed by Cantiveros, saying Panganiban’s presence is proof that their friendship isn't just for show.
“Lagi akong nagte-text sa kanya na pumunta siya. Sabi niya, ‘Twinny, I’m gonna go, rain or shine.’ First time [namin nagkita] after ko magbuntis. Matagal ng wala [ng issue], before pa ng kasal nag-sorry sorry na. At least napatunayan namin na totoo kaming magkaibigan,” she said.
Francisco, for his part, said their misunderstanding with Panganiban is just a bump on the road.
Aside from Panganiban, the other godparents of Cantiveros and Francisco’s daughter are Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Eddie Garcia, Kaye Abad, Sam Pinto, Ryan Bang, Tom Rodriguez, Alex Gonzaga and ABS-CBN TV production head Lauren Diyogi.
