Tony Labrusca appreciates even the smallest of things that happens to him. Tony’s family once struggled financially and now that he has a job that allows him to provide for his loved ones, he is grateful for everything that comes his way.
In an interview with PUSH, Tony shared how he got to fulfill this dream for his mom Angel Jones – which is to treat her to a fancy restaurant. He shared that it is one of his most unforgettable moments with his mother.
“When I move to the Philippines, kasi isang year pa lang ako sa Pinas, parang financially unstable po ako and ang nanay ko and I told her that ‘yung dream ko is that will be able to make enough money to eat at fancy restaurants without asking help from my stepfather or anybody else,” he shared.
So grateful for the love and support given to my son @boyband_anthony . There will always be haters (we all know haters are just low key fans in denial 😂) but the over flow of love and support always abounds and has been such a wonderful sight to see. Thank you for all the love for my Sharky. Thank you @themarklim For this Tony approved photo of us 😂
My Sharky is Boyband of the week again! Top 9. So proud of how he is transforming as an artist and a fine young man through this whole process. Learning when to wait, when to fight and when to change from a challenge. No one sees the full struggles behind the scenes, but as a mother, seeing it all unfold and trusting him to make meaningful choices amidst the world of showbiz just makes me so proud. Love you babe @boyband_anthony #tonylabrusca #angeljones
Tony said that after he joined a reality competition on ABS-CBN, he was offered projects that helped him fulfill that dream.
“Until I started getting work after Pinoy Boyband, it was such a good feeling na I would just ask my mom where do you wanna eat? We will eat anywhere and on Mother’s day, we went to Sofitel. We were able to have a buffet. If we wanted wine, we got wine so I think that’s my unforgettable moment – that my dream came true. Kasi before, we couldn’t even afford to have certain food but now we’ve been so blessed that we could eat anywhere we want. So I think just even that small thing, that’s something unforgettable for me,” he said.
The La Luna Sangre actor shared how close he is to his mother. “I appreciate my mom naman na she is young, that she can relate more and she can understand more what I’m going through when I have to tell her about my secrets and when I have to tell her about the problems that I have. I like that my mom is very open with me. She’s more accepting than getting mad at me,” he said.
