Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos-Recto has expressed her excitement over her son Luis Manzano’s engagement to long-time girlfriend Jessy Mendiola.
“Matagal ko na din hinintay ‘to. Lagi kong sinasabi kay Lucky, ‘you’re not getting any younger,’” she said in an interview with ABS-CBN News last December 14.
The legendary actress also mentioned how much she appreciates Jessy for being there for her son.
“Nakita ko na minahal talaga niya si Lucky. Mahal niya ang anak ko,” she said.
Vilma added that she has gotten to know Jessy even more through the years, and has discovered a lot of the young actress’ values and good traits.
“Isang in-appreciate ko is she’s a very prayerful person. Nagro-rosary ‘yan every day,” she shared.
Of course, one more thing Vilma is excited for is having grandchildren, which she joked should come in advance before the wedding.
“Sinabi ko, ‘pwede bang advance na ‘yung apo?’ Tawanan lang sila. It was meant to be a joke,” she enthused.
