Sylvia Sanchez is ABS-CBN’s “Magandang Buhay” guest on its Monday episode. Hosted by momshies Jolina Magdangal, Karla Estrada, and Melai Cantiveros, the brilliant actress has been honest in admitting that Arjo Atayde is not her firstborn just like what most people know.
Sylvia Sanchez shared that the name of her eldest child is Pia and she had her when she was 17 years old.
“Baka kasi marami ang nagtatanong, ‘yun ‘yung panganay ko before Arjo. Pero si Pia kasi iba ang tatay noon.”
“Marami sa Instagram ang nagtatanong bakit hindi namin nakikita ‘yung Pia. Ayaw kong sagutin kasi ang habang explanation.”
But then, Sylvia emphasized that even if she revealed that Pia is her eldest child from another man, she doesn’t need to share her life story most especially how she is as a mother because she knows herself more than anyone else does.
“Huwag niyong kuwestiyunin ang pagka-nanay ko kasi alam ko, ako ‘yon. What’s important is me and my God, hindi ako at ang ibang tao.”
She also said she has no intentions of explaining further as later on, people will just start bashing her.
“Akin ‘yon, kung ano ang nangyari sa buhay namin. Kasi once mag-explain ka sa umpisa, tapos iba-bash ka, tapos hahaba.
Meanwhile, Sylvia became emotional when she was asked to give a message for her beloved mother, Rose Ocampo.
She said she saw all her sacrifices just to be able to give her children a better life.
“Ma, gusto ko lang sabihin sa iyo na lahat ng namana ko sa iyo ay napapakinabangan ngayon ng mga anak ko.”
“Gusto kong magpasalamat sa iyo kasi ‘di mo man ako pinamanahan ng materyal na bagay, pero higit pa sa materyal na bagay ang pinamana mo sa akin.”
“Ang kabutihan mo, pagiging good heart mo, ‘yan ang ipinamana mo sa akin na pinapakinabangan ngayon ng anak ko.”
“Maraming salamat Mama, sobra kitang mahal.”
Sylvia also asked for apologies because she knew she was able to hurt her.
“Sorry kasi alam ko minsan nasasaktan kita, nasasaktan din ako. Pero hindi importante ang sakit na nararamdaman ko, ang importante ay ayaw kitang masaktan.”
“Ayaw kitang makitang umiiyak. Nanay kita.”
Sylvia is now busy promoting the movie titled “Nay” with co-star Enchong Dee.
