It's no secret that Vice Ganda is a mama's boy.
The 44-year-old comedian finally featured his mom, Rosario Viceral, in the vlog he uploaded on YouTube last March 11, 2021, Thursday.
While cooking Nanay Rosario's special spaghetti, the It's Showtime host had a heart-to-heart talk with his mother about his younger years.
One question that Vice Ganda asked was his mom's dream for him when he was younger.
Nanay Rosario answered, "Ang dream ko talaga sa iyo noon kasi nakikita ko, yun bang magaling ka magbasa, magaling ka sumagot.
"Kaya sabi ko, 'Ay! magiging abogado itong aking anak,' o kaya inhinyero.
"Kasi hindi ko napi-predict yung mga ano [pangarap] anak ko kasi paiba-iba sila, e, ng gusto."
Back then, did she have an inkling that her son would be growing up gay?
Nanay Rosario nodded, but she chose not talk about it then because of Vice Ganda's father, Reynaldo Viceral.
She said, "Ako nung ano, nararamdaman ko na pero hindi ako makibo kasi ayaw ng tatay mo, di ba? Kasi ang nauna nga si Babut nun na..."
Vice Ganda added, "Si Kuya muna... Manual [Emma] bago si Babut."
Nanay Rosario continued, "Galit siya [Tatay]... Dahil ikaw daw ang magiging tunay na lalaki kaya hindi ako kumikibo. Tinitignan lang kita paglaki mo.
"Sa loob-loob ko, 'Hindi naman siguro. Dalawa na sila.'"
Vice Ganda's father, who served as a barangay captain, was shot dead by someone he had a quarrel with on Palm Sunday in 1991.
Nanay Rosario said she never felt sad or had any regrets knowing that three out of her five kids—three boys, two girls—came out as gay.
She explained, "Hindi ako nalungkot kasi ako naman kung ano yung ibinigay ng kapalaran sa mga anak ko, tanggap ko kahit na ano.
"Ganun ako ka-open. Hindi kapares ng tatay niyo na may pamantayan siya."
If Vice came out of the closet earlier, what would Nanay Rosario say to him?
The 75-year-old mom answered, "Sasabihin ko, 'Tatanggapin ko anak kung yung talaga ang binigay ng Diyos sa iyo na kapalaran mo, open lang tayo.'
"Kasi nakakitaan ko naman yung dalawang kapatid niya na wala namang problema. Mababait naman sila na mga bata, nakakatulong ko."
