Diamond Star Maricel Soriano couldn’t get enough of her niece Meryll Soriano’s children.
In a guest appearance on Meryll’s vlog, the Diamond Star went head-to-head with her niece as they discussed what it’s like raising a kid in a traditional setup versus a modern one.
According to Maricel, she felt as if Eli — Meryll’s son with ex-husband Bernard Palanca — was hers the moment she laid eyes on him.
"Kaya noong dumating si Eli sa buhay natin, aba eh talaga naman, ako ang feeling ko ay akin ang anak, inaangkin ko. Hindi naman pwede siyempre may nanay 'yon. Tapos hindi pa tayo natapos doon. Walang tuldok, nanganak ulit," Maricel said.
When Meryll gave birth to her child with Joem Bascon, the actress’s family also couldn’t get enough of his good looks according to Maricel.
"Naku pagka-gwapo na naman ng anak, ano ba ‘to? Si Guido naman ang kinahuhumalingan ng lahat. Nakakalokang bata. Napaka-gwapo,” she said.
Maricel went on to share how lucky everyone in the family feels for having two additional good-looking members of the family through Meryll.
She said: “Dalawang apo ko na ang gwapo. Kaya sabi ko, ‘Dyusko ano ba ‘to?’ Dalawa silang gwapo. Ang swerte naman namin ‘di ba?”

In the said vlog, Maricel and Meryll also shared their thoughts about different ways of taking care of their babies.
It was in January this year when Meryll introduced her child with fellow actor Joem Bascon.
According to Meryll, a second part of the vlog with her aunt Maricel — who is celebrating her 50th year in the world of show business this year — is coming out next week.
