Daily Diaries: This Is Why Alex Gonzaga Loves Poking Fun At Mommy Pinty, 'The Internet Sensation'

Every mother-daughter relationship is different. While some moms are too serious that you can’t even joke around them, others are so fun that for a moment, you feel like you're talking to your BFF! Alex Gonzaga and Mommy Pinty, in which we are lucky enough to see a glimpse of through the Kapamilya host-actress' vlogs, fit into this category.

“She’s the source of my happiness,” Alex told us at the launch of Block & White’s Sakuha Park, saying their relationship has been like that since she was a kid. “Lagi niyang sinasabi, ‘Huwag nyo ‘kong gawing katawa-tawa!’ Pero nakakatawa talaga sya.”

The two have always kept a positive rapport, stressed Alex, who calls herself a mommy’s girl. “There was one time na umuwi ang mommy and daddy ko tapos sabi ko, ‘Ang mommy?’ Nagtampo daddy ko, tinulak nya ako sa mommy ko tapos sabi nya, ‘Dyan ka na sa mommy mo!’  Bata palang ako, hindi ko makakalimutan yun,” she recalled, adding that some of her happiest moments as a kid included playing jackstones with Mommy Pinty during her days off work. “We’re very, very close talaga.”

As someone who loves pulling jokes on her mom in her vids, Alex reassured us that Mommy Pinty gets past the pikon stage quickly. “Mabilis mawala galit ng mommy ko. Kahit galit na galit na sya, kausapin mo after five minutes, okay na kayo nyan,” she said when asked how she deals with the situation. "Ganun siyang klaseng tao—walang masamang tinapay kahit kanino.”

Respect is still there, Alex declared. “Some people would say wala kaming respect pero it’s very opposite kasi we highly respect our mom’s opinions, decisions, and rules kahit my sister’s married and I’m in the right age na, and it will stay that way.”
