Nothing compares to a mother's love.
Han Carteciano Gob, JM de Guzman's mother, is proof of this. In an interview on "Magandang Buhay" this morning, July 2, she spoke about her unconditional love for her eldest son, which stood strong and true even as she watched him struggle with and overcome his addiction to drugs.
According to Mommy Han, she blamed herself for JM's addiction.
She said, "Siyempre kasama na 'yun, hindi naman mawawala 'yun eh. Kasi, tatanungin mo 'yung sarili mo bakit nagkaganoon 'yung anak mo. [Pero in the end] nangyari na, edi tulungan na lang ulit. Support na lang, hindi mawawala 'yung support, 'yung love. Kasi kahit naman nawala lahat sa kanya, kami naman naiiwan lagi eh. Kami lagi 'yung naiiwan, pati 'yung mga fans niya."
She continued, "'Yung mga fans, parang family na rin. Hindi talaga nila binitawan si JM. 'Yung kahit na anong nangyari."
The silver lining of that very dark time in JM's life is that their family came out of it stronger and closer than ever.
"Mas close [na kami ngayon]." Mommy Han enthused, "Kasi mas sobra pa [siya] sa ine-expect ko. Dati sabi ko 'Lord, ibalik mo naman 'yung anak ko kung ano siya dati.' Pero ngayon sobra pa eh...sobra 'yung lambing...hindi naman siya ganyan dati."
Now, as JM restarts his life and his showbiz career after his two-year rehab stint, Mommy Han has one request: Grandkids.
"Gusto ko [na magka-girlfriend siya ulit]. Gusto ko na nga siya magka-baby eh. Gusto ko magkaroon ng apo sa kanya," she said.
And when asked which special lady is her top choice for JM, Mommy Han dropped a major hint about the actor's love life: "Lahat noong dine-date niya bet ko eh."
JM topbills the hit afternoon "Precious Hearts Romances" series "Araw Gabi" alongside Barbie Imperial. He's also part of a movie project under director Carlos Siguion-Reyna.
