The Manila Times happily witnessed the kind of family life that former teen actress and now fulfilled wife and mother Jolina Magdangal-Escueta has made. On Wednesday, the ABS-CBN actress and recording artist, together with her musician husband Mark of Rivermaya, presented her one-year son Pele at the Escueta family’s endorsement launch for Filipino diaper brand Super Twins.
“Iba po pala talaga ang feeling pag may sarili ka nang anak,” said the 36-year-old celebrity who practically grew in front of the public eye. “Ngayon po that I’m a wife and mother, more than ever, I really feel the spirit of family.”
The former teen idol who has always been a positive figure in show business continues to be so even in her adult life. It is for this very reason that Megasoft Hygienic products said they chose her family to endorse their latest product, following the success of their sanitary napkin brand, which had Maja Salvador as ambassador.
“We’re so happy to have the three of them with the Megasoft family especially since I’ve long been a fan of Jolina. And as expected, wala kaming naging problema sa kanya and her beautiful family during the photo and video shoot because they are not just endorsers but partners. Concerned sila sa lahat ng bagay and will give us their feedback from the product to our concept,” shared company owner Aileen Go.
“Ang nagustuhan namin sa Megasoft ay pina-try talaga nila sa amin yung product at nakinig sila sa mga observations namin from using Super Twins kay Pele. Nandoon yung na-appreciate ko yung kapal niya dahil nasa stage si Pele na malikot pero hindi balansyado, na yung diaper mismo nagiging cushion sa pag-ka-hulog niya habang natututo lumakad,” Jolina responded.
Moreover, Jolina thanked her very supportive and hands-on husband for being such a true partner in raising their son.
“Saludo po ako sa mga single parents kasi ang na-realize ko hindi madali ang magpalaki ng anak. Si Mark, nag-papalit ng diaper at tumutulong sa lahat ng gawain na pag-alaga kay Pele. He’s also such a reader na mas alam pa niya sa akin yung mga dapat gawain sa baby kaya napakasaya ko po na siya ang kasama ko sa araw araw.”
