- Coleen Garcia’s mother initially did not accept daughter’s marriage with Billy Crawford since she’s too young
- She realized parents should know their boundaries especially if their children are of the right age to make major decisions
The love story of celebrity couple Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia is not unknown to us. Many reacted towards their relationship; even Coleen’s own mother, Maripaz Magsaysay.
During an interview with PEP, Maripaz admitted that at first she could not not accept the fact that her daughter is about to get married. She reportedly said: “Ako ‘yung last person na hindi ko matanggap kasi nga nasa honeymoon stage kami ni Coleen na parang always spending time pa rin kami and everything, ‘tapos too young for me.”
[I was the last person to agree to it because it’s like Coleen and I are still in the honeymoon stage like we’re always spending time with each other and everything. And she’s too young for me.]
She eventually gave in and offered her full support to the couple’s decision of tying the knot when she later saw her daughter happy with Billy.
She shared that what matters most in the end is her daughter’s decision since she’s of the right age. She added that parents should know their boundaries in terms of influencing their children’s major decisions in life.
Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful Mama! I'm not used to spending this occasion away from her, but she is currently in La Union, campaigning for my family members. In the midst of all the chaos that the elections have brought upon us, let us all stop for a while today to acknowledge everything our mothers have done for us. Let us be filled with love and gratitude, knowing that there is someone in our lives who has always wanted the best for us and has done everything in her power to protect us from all the wrong things in this world. ? Thank you, Mama, for loving us completely. The love you gave us is the love we learned to give to others. ??
“All you have to do is be supportive lang, and give your unconditional love and understanding, pray for them and wish them all the best in life,” she added.
The celebrity couple Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia are now hands on in their wedding preparations.
