Jake Cuenca shares that Angelica Panganiban opened up to him about her father several times in the past.
During the Kapamilya trade launch last December 1, Jake Cuenca expressed his excitement about Angelica Panganiban who recently got reunited with her long-lost father for the very first time. Last November 21, the 24-year-old actress flew to the States where her dad'rsquo;s based and she arrived in Manila last December 2 feeling very optimistic with their reconciliation. "Talaga? Wow! Congratulations, kasi alam na alam ko storya na 'lsquo;yan. I am super happy for Angel. God bless you and your family. Tapos nandiyan din si Derek (Ramsay) na nagmamahal sa kanya so I can just imagine kung anong pakiramdam niya ngayon. I wish her all the happiness and good luck," said the Green Rose star in an interview with Push.com.ph.
Jake further shared that Angelica has talked to him about her dad in the past and he'rsquo;s aware that their separation is the reason why she has a lot of male friends who may act as a father figure to her. "Siyempre me and Angel have been friends for a while. There were some occasions na nakwento niya sa akin. Pero siyempre 'lsquo;di ko alam yung ibang details. I'rsquo;m just really happy for her kasi ang tagal na niyang pinangarap 'lsquo;yan at ang tagal na niyang pinagdasal 'lsquo;yan. And for it to come true, napakaganda talagang regalo 'lsquo;yan sa sarili niya ngayong Pasko."
On Angelica'rsquo;s part, the reasons why her dad left her don'rsquo;t matter to her anymore because they were at least given a chance to catch up on lost time. "Medyo sensitive 'lsquo;yong part noon at medyo personal 'lsquo;yong reason kung bakit kami nagkahiwalay, kung bakit hindi niya ako hinanap, kung bakit hindi ko alam na siya ang daddy ko. Ang importante, nag-end up ng maganda ang lahat." The young actress refused, however, to comment whether or not she bears ill feelings towards her mom for her part in this issue. "Ibang side ng issue naman 'lsquo;yon. Mahirap magsalita." 'ndash;With reports from TV Patrol
