HIGHLIGHT: The People's Champ melted hearts when he posted a thank you message for wife Jinkee, after winning his last boxing career fight.
With three million strong followers, Manny Pacquiao opted to share his soft side in his first post-fight Instagram upload.
He captioned his photo with Jinkee, 'Through thick and thin. Always by my side no matter what. To God be the glory."
Jinkee posted the same picture but instead quoted 2 Corinthians 3:4 "We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ.' Praise God!Indeed, we are Victorious in the name of JESUS. Thank you JESUS! Glory to GOD!"
With the champ's consequent confirmation the he is indeed ending his 21-year career in boxing, Jinkee could not be any happier.
In January, Jinkee was quoted in an Inquirer interview, “I’m not sad [that he’s retiring], I’m happy, it’s an answered prayer for me...We’ve been praying for it ever since he lost to [Juan Manuel] Marquez in 2012.”
The couple got married in 2000 and now has 5 children namely, Israel, Michael Stephen, Queen Elizabeth, Mary Divine Grace and Emmanuel Jimuel.
A shared passion for politics also binds the two. Jinkee is incumbent governor of her hometown ,Sarangani, while Pacquiao is running as senator and also Sarangani congressman since 2010.
