After Sharon Cuneta shared her post showing support for her daughter Miel Pangilinan’s decision to publicly come out as a member of the LGBTQ community last June 15, her husband Senator Francis Pangilinan also posted a comment on his daughter’s account, echoing his wife’s earlier statement on Instagram.
He wrote, “I love you my Yellie Bellie ! Mama and I will always be here for you. Always. For certain. Forever. No matter what. Period. No more comma. The end of the paragraph. Amen.”
