Vilma Santos is more than excited to be a first-time grandmother that she’s already asking expecting couple Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola to give her another grandchild.
The veteran actress shared her excitement on a recent Youtube video where she talked to her son and daughter-in-law about her sentiments as a lola.
Vilma’s first and priority question asks when and how long she will be able to borrow her soon-to-be granddaughter.
“Hindi ba usapan natin kung maaari kailangan masundan agad. Sana baby boy. Kaya habang pina-plano niyo si baby boy, kailangan may mag-aalaga kay Peanut,” she said, volunteering to take care of the baby.
The 68-year-old also expressed how this is the first time that she will be able to understand how a grandmother truly feels.
She explained: “They were saying na kung minahal mo, inalagaan mo ang anak mo mas doble na mamahalin mo at aalagaan mo ang mga apo. If you’re worried para sa education, health or safety ng anak mo, doble daw sa apo mo.
Hindi ko po alam kasi hindi ko pa nararanasan, may apo ako sa mga pamangkin pero wala pa yung direct talaga and this is the first time. Maski ako po, hindi ako alam. I’m just so excited.”
It was back in May when Vilma was surprised by the news of Jessy’s pregnancy. The soon-to-be lola’s adorable reaction featured on a Youtube video went viral immediately after.
