During the press interview for her new Kapuso teleserye Love of My Life, the veteran actress expressed her gratitude for the Lord for what He has done for her son.
“I just pray that he will fulfill his calling in life, the destiny that God has called him to,” she said. “Wala akong masasabi. Prayers lang talaga. I just hope and pray that he will always look after the needs of others and will always remain humble [and] look to the Lord and trust the Lord.”
Apart from praying for his son’s calling as mayor of Pasig and for the entire people of the Philippines, Coney was also asked if she prays for her son to have a special significant other in his life.
“Siyempre, pine-pray lahat ’yan,” she said. “I’m not anxious about that because I know that God is preparing him and preparing somebody. So, ang masasabi ko lang protect and preserve the person. Kailangan kasi talagang, alam mo na, kailangan ’yong gusto ni Lord para sa kanya talaga at tsaka ’yong swak talaga.”
When asked if she ever grills her son when he is linked to other girls, like Gretchen Ho, for instance, who was spotted watching a SEA Games Event with the mayor last December 2019, this was Coney’s answer:
“Kasi alam ko kung meron talaga, sasabihin ng anak ko. Hindi ko kailangan magtanong. Mga anak ko, magsasabi ’yon. So, ’pag walang sinasabi, e di wala.”
