If there's anything Chito Miranda takes pride in at this point of his life, it's none other than his wife Neri Naig and their kids.
On Saturday, May 7, the Parokya ni Edgar frontman looked back at his childhood and how he has never been the “gwapo” one. But what he has is “yabang” or pride.
"Tanggap ko naman mula pa noong bata pa ako na hindi ako gwapo, eh... but what I had, was more important than good looks. Meron akong yabang," he wrote in the caption.
Chito then went to explain how this pride he has isn't meant for belittling others, but more on to encourage himself. "'Yung yabang ko, was naniniwala ako sa sarili ko na kayang kong gawin kung ano man ang trip kong gawin. Kumbaga, malakas lang talaga loob ko," he said.
"Noong 4th year high school ako, kahit 'di ako marunong kumanta, nagbuo ako ng banda. Si Gab talaga 'yung magaling kumanta... pero mas malakas loob ko kaya ako ang in-assign ko bilang bokalista,” he recalled.
Fast forward to this day, Chito said that he might still not be as good looking as others, but he's definitely blessed with a gorgeous wife and beautiful kids — and that's more than enough for him.
"Ngayon, eto ako, 46 years old, wala ng bangs at hindi pa rin gwapo, pero tingnan niyo naman, ang ganda ng asawa ko. Sobrang bait at sobrang successful, at ang gagwapo ng mga anak ko. Maayos ang buhay, at higit sa lahat, masaya. Again, another thing na proud akong ipagyabang," he said.
Chito ended his post with a reminder to everyone about fighting through the things that weigh us down.
"We all have our strengths and weaknesses, we all have disadvantages, some, more than others... but it's up to us to fight through it, and make something out of what we have," he stated.
Chito and Neri marked their 7th wedding anniversary last December. They have three children: Miggy, Pia, and Cash.
