MANILA – They may not be self-isolating in the same home currently, but KC Concepcion revealed she has been in constant communication with her mother Sharon Cuneta during this whole coronavirus pandemic.
In an interview with Tim Yap for his YouTube channel on Saturday, Concepcion shared that she and Cuneta have made it a point to send each other food from time to time.
“That’s our way of expressing love, through gifts. I think my mom and I have the same love language where we like to give each other gifts. I miss her, I love her so much. I think she is an amazing mom. At the end of the day, lahat ng nangyayari sa amin should stay in the family and just like any family, no one is perfect,” she said.
In January, Concepcion’s absence from Cuneta’s televised birthday celebration triggered an exchange of messages on social media. While Concepcion apologized for her absence, Cuneta lamented that her daughter has become increasingly distant from her side of the family.
They appeared to have patched things up back in March when Cuneta promoted the new YouTube page of her daughter on Instagram, where they exchanged sweet words for each other.
In the interview with Yap, Concepcion admitted that they also go through bumps along the way just like any family; the only difference is that they are public personalities.
“I don’t really like talking about problems in public but people love us and have really welcomed us in their lives. I want to thank everyone that is there to support my relationship with my mom. Every day, you just want everything to be nice and light and happy,” she said.
While admitting she has not been a perfect daughter, Concepcion said what’s important is the relationship that they have now.
“If there was time lost before, I think the most important thing is to both embrace each other’s imperfections and forgive and be loving towards each other. That’s the best we can do,” she said.
According to Concepcion, when she has her own family in the future, she just wants to take away the best parts of what she’s learned from Cuneta as a mother.
“Take all the good, put that in my future family. I really want to have a happy life. I just want to be happy. I want my loved ones to feel loved and happy. I would love to be able to make people around me to feel their best. That’s really all it is for me,” she said.
Concepcion is Cuneta’s daughter with ex-husband Gabby Concepcion. Cuneta has three other children with her current husband, Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan.
