Vhong Navarro is deeply moved by Angelica Panganibans reunion with long lost biological father


Angelica Panganiban returned from the US and shared her emotional experience upon finally meeting her American biological father. In her recent exclusive interview with Boy Abunda, Angelica confessed that it was only this year that she learned that she was adopted and that her biological dad was living in the US. Angelica is currently shooting the movie Bulong with Vhong Navarro, and when Push.com.ph caught up with Vhong at the thanksgiving party for the teleserye Kokey @ Ako, he revealed that he had known about Angelica'rsquo;s plan to see her father before she left for the US. "Sobrang happy ko para sa kanya. Bago pa kasi siya umalis, nagkausap kami sa shooting ng Bulong. Naikwento ni Angelica na pinaghahandaan din ng tatay niya 'lsquo;yung pagkikita nila. Siyempre hindi ganun ka simple kasi ikaw ba naman napakasikat ng anak mo. Si Angelica naman hindi siya mapakali, naiisip niyang magdala ng mga DVD ng mga movies niya. Sabi ko sa kanya na maganda 'lsquo;yun kasi dapat niyang ipakilala kung sino siya."

While Angelica was with her dad in the US, she was exchanging phone messages with Vhong who was busy hosting Showtime and on air he happily greeted Angelica and her dad. "Nanonood sila ng Showtime and binati ko sila. Nagpaalam muna ako kasi baka maunahan ko siya. Gusto ko rin naman na siya ang unang magsabi sa lahat. Sabi naman niya, 'lsquo;Go!'rsquo; kaya binati ko sila para ma-surprise 'lsquo;yung tatay niya na binabati siya sa TV."

Vhong further shared that as a good friend he feels very happy that Angelica has now found one important missing piece in her life. "Ang sarap ng feeling para kahit kanino na makita 'lsquo;yung totoong ama. At the same time 'lsquo;yung mga taong nagalaga sa kanya e hindi siya itinuring na iba. Kaya naiintindihan ko kung bakit sobrang saya niya. Heto kinikilabutan na ako habang pinaguusapan natin. Ngayon nakikita natin na napakasaya niya dahil alam niyang mas maraming nagmamahal sa kanya."

As a father himself, Vhong said he understands how any dad would be very emotional upon seeing their child for the first time in years. "Tatay ako at kapag nakikita ko 'lsquo;yung mga anak kong nagpe-perform sa stage naiiyak ako sa tuwa. Ganun din 'lsquo;yung mararamdaman ng tatay niya kapag nalaman kung sino talaga si Angelica. Akala ko sa pelikula lang nangyayari 'lsquo;yung mga ganun pero nangyari sa artista."

Vhong shared his excitement over the coming holidays when he would get to spend some quality time with his four children. "Sa bahay na lang kami. Late na para bumili pa ako ng ticket. Balak ko sana kasi makasama ko 'lsquo;yung mga anak ko, punta kaming ibang bansa. Gusto kong dalhin sila sa Singapore kasi nandun 'lsquo;yung ibang mga kaibigan kong Streetboys na mga ninong ng mga anak ko. 'lsquo;Yun ang pinakaimportante dun, kailangang makita ng mga anak ko 'lsquo;yung mga ninong nila, he he he!"

Vhong also wants to buy the best Christmas gifts for his kids. His problem though is to find out what each of his kids wa
