Miss Universe Philippines 2019 Gazini Ganados, pangarap makilala ang ama!

Miss Universe Philippines 2019 Gazini Ganados dreams to meet her father someday.

The country's newest queen became emotional on her "Magandang Buhay" guesting today, June 20, as she opened up about her dad whom she has never met. 

"I never really met my dad growing up," she admitted. "[But I'm] still hoping maybe I could meet him someday."

In spite this though, Gazini put a spotlight on her mom Carmencita Ganados, who served as both her mom and her dad growing up. 

"Hindi naman nagkulang 'yung mom ko at pinalaki naman niya ako nang maayos. Binigay niya sa'kin ang love na kailangan ng isang bata," she shared.

"[Kapag] Father's Day, gini-greet ko [rin] 'yung mom ko ng Happy Father's Day kasi she's both a father and a mother to me."

She continued, "Alam naman niya na kaming dalawa [na lang] kasi my grandmother just passed away. Laking lolo't lola rin ako and besides, that's the reason we transferred to Cebu kasi we wanted to [move on]  from my lolo's death. Moving forward, alam naman naming dalawa we will always be there for each other.”.

As for her estranged Palestinian father, Gazini has a short but sweet message.

"To my dad, to my papa whom I [have] never met, [I'm] hoping to meet you someday," she said while in tears. "I never had the grudge of how and why I didn't have a dad. Everything happens for a reason and I hope to meet you someday."

Gazini Ganados is Philippines' representative in the Miss Universe 2019 pageant which will be held later this year. She is an advocate of women and elderly care.
