Broadcaster Karen Davila was starstruck the first time she met Jimuel, son of Senator and boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and socialite Jinkee Pacquiao.
Karen gushed over Jimuel when she went to the home of the Pacquiaos for her YouTube show Karen Davila recently.
“Ang guwapo naman nito. Bakit ang mestiso mo?” Karen asked Jimuel, eldest son of the Pacquiao couple.
Turning to Manny, Karen laughed and asked: “Siguradong anak mo ito dear? Parang hindi ako sure. Mukhang foreigner.”
“He’s a good dad, good role model. He’s my inspiration and everything,” said JImuel when asked about his impressions about his famous father.
Karen told Manny: “Nakabawi ka na dito Manny.”
Jimuel, 20, told Karen he is currently in a relationship with upcoming star Arabella del Rosario.
“Mabait naman na bata,” said Manny on Arabella.
Asked if really wanted to become a boxer, Jimuel said: “It’s one of my dreams. Right now, I want to be an amateur fighter.”
“Si Jimuel tahimik, mabait at hindi mayabang. Gusto niyang sumunod sa yapak ko,” Manny told Karen.
The Kapamilya broadcaster also asked the senator if he wanted his son to join the movies.
Manny said: “Nasa kanya yun. Dumaan din ako dyan. Pero pinapaalala ko sa kanya maraming temptation dyan.”
But given the chance, Manny said he doesn’t want his son to become a boxer. The politician-boxing champ said that he wants his children to serve and help others. “Alalahanin natin na kapag natapos na tayo rito, wala tayong madadala kahit piso.”
