Singer, actress, and TV host Toni Gonzaga had her dad Bonoy as a guest for the Father’s Day episode of her online show Toni Talks.
In the said vlog, the 37-year-old actress gave fans an up-close and personal look at her relationship with her dad alongside her sister Alex who also made a guest appearance on her show.
One of the questions Toni raised was the strengths and weaknesses he sees in his two daughters.
“Aggressive,” Bonoy said, referring to Alex. “Ikaw [Toni] kasi aggressive ka na, in a way, inuunti-unti mo. Kailangan, slowly but surely. Ito [Alex], hindi. Jump to conclusion agad ‘to eh,” he stated.
“Pag naisip niya, skip all the process. Tatalunin niya. Kaya pagdating niya, ‘Ay may nakalimutan pala ako.’ Ikaw kasi, pagdating du’n, everything is ready,” Bonoy added.
“Ang kasarapan lang dito maski may kulang, dahil siya ang nag-skip, nagagawan niya ng paraan. Maski may mali na, nalulusutan pa niya,” he continued.
Meanwhile, Bonoy admitted it makes him happy whenever he sees his two daughters getting along with each other.
“’Pag nakikita ko kayo — kaya ako medyo naluluha habang nag-uusap kayo — natutuwa ako kasi ang saya ninyo. Nagagalak ako na nakikita mo ang pamilya mo [na masaya]. Talagang napakabuti ng Panginoon,” he said.
On what he believes will make him think that he failed as a parent, Bonoy said: “We will consider whatever success you achieve, whatever path you take, ‘pag nakikita namin kayo na hindi kayo naglilingkod sa Panginoon, then we failed as parents.”

Towards the end of the vlog, Toni honored her dad for raising two God-fearing children and for giving both her and Alex unconditional love.
“Our father never likes to take credit sa pagpapalaki sa amin ni Alex. Lagi niyang binabalik sa Diyos ang kanyang nagawa. Nagpapasalamat kami sa kanya dahil kung sino man kaming magkapatid ngayon, lahat ‘yan ay dahil sa kanyang pagtiyatiyaga at pagmamahal na ituwid at turuan kami,” Toni said.
“…binigay naman niya sa amin ang tunay na mahalaga sa bahay. Pinakilala niya sa amin si Hesus. At walang karangyaan o bagay sa mundo ang magpaparamdam sa amin ng pagmamahal na totoo,” she added.
