Dina Bonnevie says Kristine Hermosa is a good daughter-in-law


022711-dina_main.jpgAfter the January wedding of her son Oyo Boy Sotto to Kristine Hermosa, Who’s That Girl actress Dina Bonnevie is excited about the prospect of having a granddaughter right away. During the Who’s That Girl presscon last February 21 at the City Best restaurant in Quezon City, Dina shared that the two are already trying to conceive. “Kahapon nga they were telling me na they’re trying eh, pero negative pa eh. Parang nag-test daw siya the other day. Sabi ko, ‘Anong result?’ ‘Negative pa mama eh.’ Sabi ko, ‘Bilisan niya na, gawa na kayo para cute.’ I want a babaeng apo. Gusto ko talaga ng baby girl na apo,” she excitedly shared.

Dina said that she has always welcomed Tin as her own daughter even when Oyo and Tin had just started dating. “Okay naman si Tin. Maalaga siya and very sweet. Minsan nagte-text siya sa akin, ganyan-ganyan. Pag nagkikita kami lagi niya akong inaayusan. Malambing naman siya,” she said.

Dina shared that if there’s one thing her son requested from her, it’s to teach Tin how to cook Oyo’s favorite dishes. “Gusto nga niya na ituro ko kay Tin yung hinahanap niyang food. Willing naman si Tin mag-aral. Dati kasi, ‘pag may taping si Oyo ng show niya, dadaan muna siya sa bahay ko para kumain. Ngayon hindi na. Pag merong nag-timbre sa bahay sasabihin ko sa maid andiyan na siya, pero sasabihin sakin nung maid, ‘Ma’am wala,’ tapos sasabihin ko ‘Meron, parang may narining ako.’ Sabi tuloy sakin ng daddy ko, ‘Naku, lumabas-labas ka na nga, nag-i-imagine ka na.’ Hinahanap-hanap ko yung mga bisita niya,” she shared.

Now that both her children are married, Dina admitted feeling a little bit of the empty nest syndrome. “My life is the same thing pa rin naman. I go to the office. I have a telecoms business. And then I was doing this movie. Yung telecoms business really keeps me very busy. Pero after the wedding, dun ko na-realize na, ‘Oh my God, my house is an empty nest.’ Kasi normally, every Tuesday or every other Tuesday, dumadaan si Oyo sa bahay ko para kumain ng bagoong, adobo, or kaldereta. Pero mula nung mag-asawa siya hindi na siya dumadaan,” she admitted.

During the wedding, Dina said she couldn’t help but feel emotional at the thought of her youngest child leaving her. “Actually nagulat ako kasi nung wedding ni Oyo, it was very hard for me to be emotional kasi nga Beatles yung theme eh. Yung wedding march pa lang was Beatles na tapos naka-rubber shoes sila, naka-wedding gown, and shades. Parang hip na hip yung wedding. Parang naging emotional lang ako nung hiningan ako ng message. Dun talaga I couldn’t help but really break down. Nung sinasabi ko yung message talagang nanginginig pa ako habang nagsasalita,” she recalled.

Now, Dina admitted she is ready to become a lola again in the near future. “Minsan lang parang ‘pag inisip ko kasi, si Ate Vi (Vilma Santos) nga hindi pa siya lola eh, parang nauna pa ako (laughs). Pero ngayon parang okay na ako. Parang ‘pag meron ka nang isang apo and then we have another one, it doesn’t change anything anymore eh. It’s all part of life. Sabi ko nga okay lang na magkaroon pa ng mga apo basta hindi pa rin ako mukhang lola. Fresh pa rin. Yan ang importante,” she said.

Catch Dina in the romantic comedy Who’s That Girl showing March 2 in cinemas nationwide.
