This month will be a whirlwind of romance and wedding bells for celebrity couple Billy Crawford and fiancée Coleen Garcia. Among those who are excited about their fast-approaching big day are their parents.
In an interview with PEP, Maripaz Magsaysay, mother of Coleen, shared her reaction upon knowing that her eldest daughter has finally the wedding proposal of Billy. She was quoted as to saying:
“Ako yung last person na hindi ko matanggap kasi nga nasa honeymoon stage kami ni Coleen na parang always spending time pa rin kami and everything, ‘tapos too young for me.”
However, upon seeing how happy and in love her daughter with Billy, she no longer barged in with their plans. According to her, she respects Coleen’s decision and she has nothing against it saying that her daughter is already matured enough to make big decisions.
“Yung parents kasi they should know when to, you know, put a boundary, kung kelan ka titigil na makialam sa mga big decisions ng mga anak mo. All you have to do is be supportive lang, and give your unconditional love and understanding, pray for them and wish them all the best in life,” she said.
Moreover, she admitted that at first, she used to oppose Coleen and Billy’s relationship. According to her, she just remained silent about it saying that she is the type of person who always keeps things by herself.
“To be honest, since the beginning, I didn’t like the idea kasi siyempre ayoko lang masaktan yung anak ko, yung ma-judge siya or whatever, kasi siyempre hindi pa maayos lahat, di ba, and parang ang daming bashers, magko-comment or ano.”
Nonetheless, after knowing the actor and host personally, she had a change of impression. She shared that Billie calls her every day to update him on everything, whether good or bad.
“Billy is such a nice guy. Kung may mali siya, he’ll correct and make it up, malambing and sobrang makatao siya. I like him, he’s a good person, he has a good heart, he’s very kind.”
Magsaysay hopes that as her daughter and Billy is set to enter another milestone in their lives as husband and wife, they would learn to value the importance of love and putting God on the center of their relationship.
“Kasi yung mafo-fall out of love ka, it’s normal, it’s gonna be part of it, yung paggising mo ng umaga parang ayaw mo ng kasama yung taong yun, lahat pagdadaanan nila. Pero sa akin, if you put God at the center of the marriage, you’re relationship would never go wrong,” she said.
