Ai-Ai delas Alas couldn’t hide her emotions after she watched the interview of journalist Julius Babao with former child star Jiro Manio.
It can be recalled that Ai-Ai helped Jiro to rehabilitate himself in 2015, but the two parted ways because of the uncooperation of the latter.
In an interview, she considered Jiro, her son, but she couldn’t accept that Jiro was not helping himself and just wasting the opportunity she gave.
However, Jiro, in the latest interview, revealed that he was already working as a co-facilitator in the rehabilitation where he was once also a patient.
“Hindi na po ako babalik sa bisyo ko, ‘yun ang pinapangako ko,” he said.
Jiro also thanked Ai-Ai for the help he received from her.
“Laking pasalamat ko pa nga po. Birthday ko po noon binati niya po ako, niregaluhan pa po niya ako ng cake. Pinapunta pa niya ako sa restaurant niya, binigyan pa niya ako ng pera,” he said.
In a video, Ai-Ai reacted to the interview, saying she was glad Jiro finally changed.
“Nagulat ako nung pumunta ako sa charity noong birthday niya tahimik lang siya, so hindi ko ine-expect na ‘ay naloko natatandaan niya pala lahat ‘yon’ so kung parang natuwa naman ako kasi parang kahit pala papaano na-appreciate pala ni Jiro ‘yung mga nangyari sa kanya noon,” Ai-Ai said.
“Doon naman sa interview nakita ko naman na okay siya and I hope Jiro na ipagpatuloy mo ‘yan maging okay ka forever and sana bumalik doon sa dati na and I hope maging tuloy tuloy na ang pagaling mo,” she added.
Ai-Ai didn’t disclose if she’s still willing to meet Jiro again.
