In the latest vlog entry of Jessy Mendiola, her beau Luis Manzano shared a trivia and said that even before knowing Jessy, his mother Vilma Santos-Recto already knew the actress.
It goes all the way back when younger Jessy and her elder sister Pam worked in a commercial with the Star for All Seasons.
“Noong bata siya, nagkasama sila ni mommy sa isang commercial. Sila nung ate niya. Nasunog 'yung set. Niligtas sila ni mommy. Nung nasunog 'yung set, [dahil sa] stove I guess, nilabas sila ni mommy. Ang galing ‘di ba?” Luis said.
“Three years old yata ako noon, karga karga niya (Vilma) ako,” Jessy added.
They were also surprised when they learned that that their fathers knew each other way back.
“Ganun ka-small world 'yung families namin. Nakakagulat na 'yung dad niya and 'yung dad ko, may mga common friends and nag-uusap pala sila na hindi namin alam,” Luis said.
It was in 2016 when Jessy and Luis confirmed their relationship to the public.
