Sweet naman pala: Sonny Belmonte responds to Joy’s ‘tough love’ tale


He may not be as vocal in showing his love and care, but this politiko is a very proud father.

Former House Speaker and Quezon City Rep. Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte, Jr. spoke up to express his fatherly love to Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, as a response to her lengthy Facebook greeting on Father’s Day. On Sunday, Joy said her dad was never showy, but his “tough love” made her work extra hard just to earn his respect.

“A father couldn’t be prouder to have a daughter as determined and brilliant as you, Joy. I may not be the most showy dad but I surely am the proudest,” the older Belmonte said, even disclosing that he always knew that Joy was “destined for great things.”

Bawing-bawi na!
