- Sugar Mercado is a single mother
- She has two daughters – Olivia and Gabrielle
- The “Wowowin” co-host separated from her husband of five years
Sugar Mercado opened up about the struggles of being a single mother.
KAMI learned that she has two daughters – Gabrielle and Olivia – with her ex-husband Kristofer Jay Go, who she was married to for five years.
In an interview with GMANetwork.com, Sugar said that she is finding it difficult to talk to his children about their broken family.
“Medyo mahirap kasi syempre tuloy pa rin ‘yung case tapos lumalaki na ‘yung kids, tapos nalalaman nila na ganun ‘yung nangyayari.
“Pero, prayers lang tapos tuloy lang kasi nandun na ‘yun ‘di ba. Kahit naman sabihin mong gusto mong maayos for the kids pero kung ayaw naman ng kabilang side, wala rin naman akong magagawa…
“Ako rin naaawa sa mga anak ko kaya kahit gustuhin ko man na i-explain sa kanila lahat, sinasabi ko na lang, ‘Hayaan mo ‘yan.
“I-enjoy mo lang, smile ka lang. We’re friends.’ Ginaganun ko na lang.”
Sugar used to be a member of the female dance group Sexbomb Dancers.
Her separation from her ex-husband became controversial years ago since she accused him of being violent towards her.
These days, Sugar is busy being a co-host on “Wowowin.”
KAMI admires all the single parents who are giving it all for the good of their children.
