Toni Gonzaga, in her latest vlog with the title “What Mommy Pinty Never Wants to Talk about,” revealed that she almost died years ago.
The actress said that this is actually her second life now and that if not for the prayers of Mommy Pinty and timely intervention of doctors, she would not be here now.
Mommy Pinty, narrated that when Toni was only a one-year-old toddler, she almost died from an illness.
She said that when she and Toni’s dad, Bono, went home from church that day, they discovered Toni unresponsive with her skin slowly turning black.
“Tapos sabi sa akin, bakit ganito (kinarga) kulay, black, para kang patay na tapos ‘yung dila mo umuurong. Natakot ako tapos ibinigay kita kay mommy (Toni’s at Alex’s grandma) tapos nagkulong na ako sa kuwarto ko sa cabinet nag-pray ako roon,” Mommy Pinty recalled.
Between sobs, Mommy Pinty narrated what she prayed about. “Ang panalangin ko huwag kang kukunin. Tapos tinanggap ko na kung anong mangyayari, ipinag-pray ko kay Lord kung ano ‘yung will niya pero ang panalangin ko, mabuhay ka pa rin,” she said.
While she was being rushed to the clinic, her Daddy Bonoy kept on shouting at Toni to fight on. At the time, her head was already dangling like a rag doll.
Fortunately, prayers and timely medical intervention saved her. According to Toni, this may explain why her Mom is extra careful and sensitive when it comes to her.
Celestine Cruz Gonzaga-Soriano, more popularly known as Toni Gonzaga, is a Filipina singer, television host, actress, producer, vlogger, and entrepreneur. She was born on born January 20, 1984 to Taytay, Rizal, Vice-Mayor Carlito "Bonoy" and Crisanta "Pinty" Cruz Gonzaga. Her mom also acts as her talent manager. Toni’s sister, Catherine "Cathy" Gonzaga, professionally known as Alex Gonzaga, is also an actress and television host. In Taytay, she was an elected Barangay Kagawad for one term and a Sunday school teacher in Taytay United Methodist Church. She studied mass communication at the Dominican College in San Juan for two years. Later, she transferred to the Asian Institute for Distance Education (AIDE) and shifted her major to AB English, which she wasn't able to finish due to her busy showbiz schedule.
Despite her “good girl” image and clean reputation, Toni, in an interview with G3 San Diego, revealed she also has many bashers. Toni said she is extra careful with her actions and words because she does not want to damage her reputation. However, this earned her some bashings, which, according to Toni, some would say she is too fake compared to her sister, Alex Gonzaga.
More recently, Toni featured her mom, Mommy Pinty, in her Mother’s Day episode of Toni Talks. The vlog became even more fun when Alex Gonzaga joined them. Alex also teased their mom when the latter started crying, just like any other guests of Toni Talks. As their conversation went on, Toni could not help reacting, “Naging bull session.”
