MANILA – Filipino boxing icon and senator-elect Manny Pacquiao has no qualms about the decision of his sons to venture into modeling.

"I'm so proud of my sons Jimuel and Michael na pinasok nila ang modeling at mababait silang mga anak at masunurin," Pacquiao told ABS-CBN News' Jeff Fernando.

He said, however, that he does not want his sons to join showbiz, at least for now.

"Hanggang modeling lang muna," he said.

Pacquiao said he and his wife Jinkee have constantly reminded their children to prioritize their studies.

"Number one ang education, and I teach them to humble themselves before others," he said, adding that he wants his children to finish school first before considering showbiz.

On Monday, Jinkee gave her Instagram followers a glimpse of Jimuel and Michael's photo shoot for the homegrown clothing brand Bench.
