He explained, "Nagulat ako na sa comments, pero iyong iba kasi sinasabi nila na parang di daw masaya iyong anak ko.

"Ano lang, hindi lang siya masyadong expressive."

Asked what made him decide to buy his son a new car, Niño answered, "Nasa edad naman na siya. Nineteen [years old] na siya, e. At graduate na siya ng senior high school.

"Usapan din kasi namin iyon kasi sa college, kailangan na niya ng kotseng ginagamit.
