“Tapos nung kinasal kami, may time na parang, ayaw ko na lang manood. Kasi nahu-hurt ako.”
“Pero, sabi niya, wala lang daw yun talaga. It’s really part of the game.”
“So, okay lang, nasanay na rin. Tsaka naranasan ko na rin naman yung, kunwari lalabas after the game, may magpaparining sa 'yo na “talo,” ganun…”
“Or, halimbawa, may error siya…magpaparining pa sa 'yo. Okay lang…nasanay na rin.”
But she remains positive: “Mas marami naman yung nagchi-cheer eh.”
Outside of the King James [James Yap], who is easily one of the most popular players in the entire league, Marc has one of the biggest followings on their team.
He is one of the last players to leave the Big Dome as fans queue outside the Red Gate to get some photos and autographs with the cagers they admire.
In fact, Danica shares that Marc makes it a point to come out fresh and smelling good after every game just for the fans.
HANDS-ON MOM. Meanwhile, Danica is also a happy mother to two kids, Jean-Michel, 4, and Anielle Micaela, 7 months old.
She decided to take break from full-time showbiz commitments for the time being and would like to concentrate on being a hands-on mom since her kids are still very young.
What if her son would also want to get into basketball?
“Yung son ko? Okay lang, basta mag-aral din siya.”
“Kasi, siyempre, ang basketball, masaya siyang trabaho, nakakapagod, physical, uhm… maganda yung kita nila but, it’s not forever, di ba.”
“So, maganda na meron kang fall back. Siguro, yun yung deal ko, dapat maganda yung grades mo kung gusto mong magbasketball ka dyan,” was her firm statement.
But when asked if she would want her son to go either into showbiz or basketball, Danica lets out a shriek, being cautious about showbiz.
