Angel Locsin revealed her heartbreaking story about her father’s blindness in an interview.
Living with her father starting at the age of 14, Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin has maintained a very close and intimate relationship with her dad Angelo Colmenares.
Angel, together with her father, has gone through a lot of challenges in life such as her father’s blindness and her medical problem with her spinal cord. But despite all of these, the two have remained steadfast.
Recently, Angel Locsin guested on Kapamilya morning talk show “Magandang Buhay” hosted by Karla Estrada, Melai Cantiveros, and Jolina Magdangal.
The hosts asked about the new beach property the actress bought for her father in Zambales.
The actress shared how she wanted to give his father everything she can afford to give. She also brought up how her father would do everything just to be able to provide Angel the perfect childhood his father wants her to have.
“Ako naman ngayon. Kasi ibinigay niya sa akin lahat, kahit hindi namin kaya noon, tinry (sinubukan) niya ‘yung best niya na gawing happy ang childhood ko, in his own way. So bilang anak, kung ano ang kaya kong ibigay, i-provide, eh ‘di ‘yun,” Angel quipped.
She also shared a heartbreaking story about her father’s blindness.
“Hindi ko kasi napagamot ‘yung mga mata ni daddy. Na-late ako, na-late ako. ‘Yun ‘yung reason ko noon, bakit ako nag-stay sa showbiz.”
“Kasi akala ko makakaipon ako, kaya lang na-late ako ng ipon. Hanggang sa hindi ko napagamot si daddy, hanggang sa too late na.”
Angel explained the risk of having his father undergo medical procedures to regain his eyesight, “Magna-93 na rin si Daddy, so medyo risky na rin sa kanya. Hindi na rin adviceable,” she said.
