LOOK: Lola’s boy Donny Pangilinan gets the ultimate surprise!

It looks like actor Donny Pangilinan has one sweet grandmother.

On his Instagram Stories yesterday, July 29, the actor shared a photo of a handwritten letter given to him by his grandmother. 

“Lola sent us handwritten letters. 😢❤,” he captioned. 

Although the contents of the letter were reserved for Donny’s eyes only, we’re sure it was written with pure love. 

Well, this is not the first time the young actor expressed his love for the special women in his life. 

In March 2017, Donny shared a lengthy post on Instagram about his “Mamang,” former actress Imelda Ilanan, who was then celebrating her 94th birthday.

He simply recalled how his great-grandmother spent special moments with him during his childhood days.

“This person literally means the world to me. Just felt like sharing a few things about her. Not many people know the effect she has had in my life. Ito po si Mamang, my great grandmother - and yes, she is still alive and very strong,” he wrote.

“But she is much more than just my great grandmother. She is my best friend,” he added.

In August last year, he also made a shoutout on Twitter for people, particularly the youth, who neglect and take their elderly loved ones for granted, and urged to appreciate them while they are still alive.



“Sat beside the table of a lola who took her three apos out to eat. They were just on their phones. No one talked to her. When you have the privilege of spending time with your lolas and lolos, please get off your phones. You'll never know how long they'll be around 😔,” he said. 

Donny, who comes from a big showbiz clan, has always been vocal about love and care for his family. He is the son of veteran actress Maricel Laxa and host and inspirational speaker Anthony Pangilinan.

He first rose to stardom after becoming a video jockey in the music channel Myx. 

The actor is currently a part of the digital program “iWant ASAP,” and is set to return to the big screen via the upcoming "Vince and Kath and James" sequel "James and Pat and Dave" alongside Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte.
