Toni Gonzaga says her parents were never too strict with her


100912-toni_main.jpgCurrently busy promoting her latest Star Cinema movie This Guy’s In Love With You, Mare, Toni Gonzaga revealed that it’s still not uncommon for her Mommy Pinty to check up on her via text message if she’s not yet at home. The 28-year-old actress admitted she is used to her parent’s ways already. “Normal na yun, parang nangangati na yung kamay nun bago mag-12. Kahit tulog siguro yun, nag-ta-type ang kamay nun (laughs). 28 years na niyang ginagawa,” she said.

Toni said that as long as she lives with her parents, things in their house will never change no matter how old she gets. “Mag-iiba lang ‘pag nag-asawa na ako. Sabi niya, ‘Pag may asawa ka na, hindi ka na sa amin. Hindi na kami ang nag-aalaga sa iyo. Eh hangga’t ngayon na kami nag-aalaga sa iyo.’ Pero hindi naman strict ang mommy ko, magtatanong lang yun kung san ka na,” she said.

Toni said that because they are a close-knit family, she always tries to involve her parents in any major decisions in her life. “Siyempre minsan, actually nararamdaman ko din hanggang ngayon parang pag may konting nangyari, consult ako sa Mommy, consult sa Daddy, consult sa kanila. Maganda yun kasi at least ‘pag may nangyaring masama, sila sisisihin ko (laughs) at may kadamay ako sa problema ko. Tinuturuan din naman nila ako na maging independent. It just so happens na pag major decision sa buhay ko, malaking bahagi ang kanilang opinion,” she admitted.

Toni also explained that she knows that she has already earned her parent’s trust. “Meron. Meron namang trust. Kasi marami namang instances sa buhay ko na napatunayan ko na mapapagkatiwalaan ako ng mga magulang ako. Ano lang sila, protective pero hindi overprotective. Likas naman sa magulang yun na protektuhan ang mga anak nila, lalo na nanay ko. Hindi ko lang nanay, manager ko pa. So alagang alaga hindi lang yung career ko, pati yung imahe ko prini-preserve niya na hanggang sa makakaya niya,” she explained.

The talented comedienne said she is also not being pressured on when and where she plans to tie the knot with longtime boyfriend Paul Soriano. “Hindi nila ako sinasabihan na bawal ako mag-asawa or hindi ka na puwede mag-asawa. Hindi ako pinagbabawalan,” she explained.

But before she gets married, Toni said she wants to fulfill another one of her dreams along with her sister Catherine (who has the screen name of Alex). “Bago kasal, madami pa akong gustong gawin. Mga in two or three years pa, ganun. Gusto ko magkaroon nung programa na sa akin na makaka-inspire sa tao na it’s something that I love to do, it’s my passion, yung shini-share ko yung buhay sa tao. Yung programa na puwede kong angkinin na akin. Yun siguro, dream ko yun. Actually dream naming magkapatid yun na magka-show kaming dalawa na magkasama. Gusto namin ni Catherine,” she revealed.
