Actress Ara Mina touched the hosts and audience members of “Magandang Buhay” while sending a message to her sister Mina, also known as Baching.
KAMI obtained a video of the emotional moment from the YouTube channel of ABS-CBN Entertainment.
Ara told her sister, who has down syndrome, that she will be there for her until the end of her life.
“Basta hanggang andito si ate, mamahalin kita at aalagaan kita. Andito lang ako lagi for you.”
(As long as I am still here, I will love you and take care of you. I am always here for you.)
She also revealed that she does not mind not if she would never find a spouse as long as she has her sister and her child.
“Okay na nga ako kahit hindi ako mag-asawa e. Oo, basta may anak ako tsaka may Baching.
“Minsan, hindi mo na iniisip kung may darating ba o ganyan. Basta happy ka na, parang nafu-fulfill na niya yung emptiness mo, sa sarili mo.”
(It is okay for me if I do not get married. Yes, as long as I have my child and Baching. Sometimes, you do not think if someone will come. As long as you are happy, the emptiness within yourself is fulfilled.)
Netizens were also touched by Ara’s message for Baching.
“Wooow ara bait mo pala at matulungin!”
“Bait namn pla ni ara Mina More Blessings Po”
“Ara is right kung alam mo sa sarili mo ano ung nakapag pasaya sayo, kontento ka na sa buhay.”
“Na miss ko tuloy sis ko, special child din kase sya.. wag iakahiya ang tulad nila... alagaan at mahalin”
