For most parents, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing your children graduate from college and live their dreams. This is the reason why the report by GMA News about comedian Jose Manalo’s daughter, Myki Manalo, graduating from medical school and soon becoming a doctor was met with much happiness and cheer in the social media community.
It can be recalled that Jose and his wife had separated due to his alleged extra-marital affair with a dancer on Eat Bulaga!, the noontime show where he is a regular host. Jose also faced various challenges afterwards and appeared to have gotten out of touch with his children.
Last year, Myki (who seems to have a close relationship with her dad) wrote a touching note for her dad that she posted on Facebook along with a snapshot of the two of them hugging each other.
In 2012, Myki graduated with a psychology degree from De La Salle University College of St. Benilde before proceeding to study medicine at the Far Eastern University – Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation where she graduated last April 2016.
The serious daughter of funny guy Jose is currently doing her post graduate internship at De Los Santos Medical Center – and will soon be a doctor! Congratulations, Myki Manalo!
Meanwhile, plenty of people are praising Jose on social media for fulfilling his responsibility with his children so they can finish their studies despite him having a major falling out with their mother. Many also believe that Jose did a good job of raising his kids in absentia and working hard, even if it meant people laughing at him, just so he could support his children.
Of course, netizens didn’t fail to also comment how Myki was ‘lucky’ that she got her looks from her mom, not her dad whose face is often the butt of jokes – and he even makes fun of his pockmarked face all the time.
