We usually see the funny and light-hearted side of comedienne Pokwang. However, most of us do not know that her life is also filled with tragedies.
KAMI learned about the saddest event in Pokwang’s life from an episode of Magandang Buhay.
It turned out that when Pokwang was working as a domestic helper in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, her 5-year-old son Shin died of brain cancer.
"Nung namatay 'yung una kong lalaki, wala ako sa tabi niya eh. Nasa ibang bansa ako noon. Dapat nandoon ako, dadamayan ko siya," Pokwang told ABS-CBN.
She also recalled how her son wanted to be a pilot.
“Mahilig 'yun magpabili kasi ng mga eroplano. Lumipad naman po siya bilang anghel,” she explained.
Thankfully, Pokwang also has a 19-year-old daughter, Ria Mae, who she has been able to see grow into a fine young lady.
She is also in a happy relationship with Lee O’Brian, an American Actor.
