MANILA – Like many celebrity moms, Gretchen Barretto took to social media to give her fans a glimpse of her Mother’s Day celebration over the weekend.

The socialite flew to San Francisco to be with Dominique, her daughter with businessman Tonyboy Cojuangco.

While Cojuangco is not seen in any of her videos on Instagram, Barretto took the opportunity to thank her long-time partner for allowing her to become a hands-on mom to Dominique.

She said she is grateful that she was able to retire and accompany her daughter to school without having to worry about finances.

“I didn’t have to work. I only had to be with you,” she said, looking at Dominique who is beside her, in one of the videos. 

“I went to school with you because I had the luxury to go to school with you,” she added, before telling her daughter, “So thank Dada (Cojuangco).”

In another post, Barretto wrote: “I thank Dada for being a perfect father to our little one… I would not be this kind of mother if not for Tony who is a hands-on father and a great provider.”

“I was blessed to be able to retire from work and be a full-time mom. I experienced the joy of motherhood every step of the way,” she added.
