Ricci Rivero’s father, Ruzko Rivero, praised Leren Bautista after his son and the former beauty queen publicly admitted their relationship.
In an Instagram post, Mr. Rivero said that he was happy with the choice of Ricci to have Leren in his life, saying that Leren’s attitude was proper.
Netizens even noticed that the Rivero patriarch took a swipe against someone whom they believed was Ricci’s ex-girlfriend, Andrea Brillantes.
“Yun naman ang hindi tutuo. Plus importante ‘yung maayos na ugali at pag respota mina-mahal mo at hindi lang pakitang tao para mapag usapan, yun naman ang sobrang layo at yan ang sigurado ako,” he said.
“May God bless you always mga anak,” he added.
The post received mixed reactions from netizens, and as of writing, Mr. Rivero’s Instagram profile was nowhere to be found.
It can be recalled that Ricci and Leren received criticism on social media after they were accused by Andrea’s fans of cheating on the actress.
However, the two denied the rumors but later admitted that they were in love.
Aside from Mr. Rivero, Ricci’s mother, Abigail Uy-Rivero, also expressed her support for Ricci and Leren, saying that God would end a ‘toxic relationship.’
