As June 21, Father’s Day, approaches, Filipinos prepare for that one special day where dads are in the spotlight. PUSH.com.ph asked your favorite celebrities to give us a glimpse on how their own dads were when they were growing up. 


JM De Guzman

“Mixed eh. May pagka-military strict na cool siya. Nung bata ako sobrang strict niya pero nung mga bandang tumanda na ako medyo nag-cool down na siya. Ngayon ganun pa rin sa kanya pa rin ako unang humihingi ng advice. Siya pa rin yung nagbabantay sa akin.”


Julia Barretto

“My dad was always so cool and very adventurous. He'd be the one to welcome me into things that I like or in being sporty and boyish so it was very fun.”

Karylle

“He was very strict and everyone knew that. Of course I'm married now so we're still very close and I see him a lot. My fondest memories of him would be playing basketball. He knew that it's hard for any child to be in the spotlight when you have a celebrity mom. So he made sure that I had a very normal childhood. So we would go to parks, play basketball with him, dance ballet. In school, he made sure I was doing okay. He always said, ‘If you study well and do well, no one can bring you down.’”


Manolo Pedrosa

“Yung dad ko very cool. I was more scared of my mom kasi mas strict siya sa mga rules, may curfew ako and I had to focus on school. Yung dad ko parang chill lang na tipong, 'Okay Manolo just be good during exams and pass, ganun lang.' Hindi naman ako pasaway. I believe that I was a very good kid growing up.”


Alex Gonzaga

“Cool na strict na ang daming alam, ganyan. Pero sweet. Lagi niya kaming pinupuntahan sa kuwarto, nung isang gabi doon siya natulog sa kuwarto ko kasama si mommy. Actually my dad is really the one who's really protective. Siguro nag-ru-rub off lang sa mommy ko pero I think it's really my dad who's old-fashioned and protective. Traditional siya sa pagpapalaki sa anak.”


Nash Aguas

“Si Daddy cool siya as in. Kasi mas strikto si Mommy kumbaga siya yung nakakatakot (laughs). Si Daddy chill lang siya. Nung bata pa ako pag may ginawa akong mali, sasabihin lang niya, 'O huwag mo ng uulitin yun.' So ako naintindihan ko naman yun. Kasi pag nagalit na si Daddy ibang klase so parang kapag sinabi na niya na huwag, susunod na ako.”


Alexa Ilacad

“Tama lang siya, hindi siya super strict. Hindi rin siya super go ka lang ng go, yung ganun. Sakto lang siya. Same loving and caring dad pa rin siya ever since and same pa rin siya through the years. He's a great provider.”


Marco Gumabao

“My dad was really relaxed but also strict. Yung tipong isang tingin lang makukuha ka na, ganun siya. With my mom she's more lenient and you can joke around with her but with my dad when he's says no you can't say anything else. Pero he's not so strict na lahat na lang no, he knows his limits kung makakabuti ba sa anak niya ito or hindi. So yun yung maganda sa dad ko.”


Miles Ocampo

“Ang daddy ko may panahon na masungit pero kumbaga nagpapaka-strict sila para sa ikabubuti namin. Ang daddy ko sobrang galing niya magluto. Siya ang dahilan kung bakit lagi akong mataba nung bata ako! (laughs) So ngayon na matanda na ako na-ko-control ko naman siya.”


Jeron Teng

“Dad ko was pretty chill. Cool dad talaga siya. I consider my dad as a friend eh. Hindi ako ilang sa kanya. Lahat nasasabi ko sa kanya and he's always there to help me. I trust him with my whole life and siye yung naging mentor ko sa lahat, sa basketball, sa buhay ko. My dad means a lot to me.”


Yassi Pressman

“He's the best person I could ever ask for in my life. He's my best friend. He's my savior. He's my hero. He's the father that's responsible, but he's also that guy I could talk to about my first crush, about my first trip in school ‘pag napapahiya, pag masaya. He's honestly like my best friend and I get super sentimental when I talk about him.”


Jed Madela

“My dad was very strict. He's the eldest in his family and I'm the eldest din. I'm the first son, the first apo and the first pamangkin so everyone was doting on me. He would spoil me a bit but everything was strict. Kailangan after school uwi kaagad. And he was my first teacher. He taught me how to sing. Sobrang strikto siya when he would teach me. Pero dati when I was younger I would feel bad and despise him na ayan na naman siya. Pero eventually when I grew up nakita ko na it was for my own good. I was really happy na he was strict with me. He inculcated all those values na talagang pinilit niya and I'm thankful that was the foundation of who I am now.”


Kiray Celis

“He's the best. Siya yung nagluluto, naglalaba, even yung panty namin ni mama siya yung naglalaba. All around siya. Siya rin naglilinis at nag-da-drive, lahat. Walang ginagawa mama ko. Kaya mahirap humanap ng boyfriend kasi mataas ang expectations ko sa lalake.”


Maris Racal

“Para siyang surprise candy. Parang sa look niya para siyang hard pero sa loob niya mabait siya na tao talaga. Yung parang strikto siya tingnan pero pag hindi mo siya makikilala hindi mo malalaman yung totoong siya. Mapagmahal siya, ganun.“


Mark Neumann

“My dad was Pinoy so he was strict. Yung Pinoy way as in binubugbog kami. Lahat andyan, suntok, sinturon, sampal, kotong, pitik sa tenga, lahat meron yan. Strict siya pero yun yung gusto ko dahil natuto ako madisiplina.”


Daniel Matsunaga

“Everything I am today is because of my parents. They taught us how to grow as a man and how to respect people, to trust people as well and to live by myself. Everything that I've learned, to be humble, to live always not leave anybody behind and to always think about others before you think about yourself.”


Vanessa Matsunaga

“I think my dad is a really nice guy. One of the best thing that he taught us is to treat everybody fully and to treat everybody correctly because we are all brothers and sisters in Christ and everybody deserves the same dignity.”
