An emotional Maja Salvador shared the difficulty of growing up without a mother by her side.
In an interview with KrisTV on Tuesday, Salvador said her mother worked abroad to support their family and that she stayed with her mother’s siblings when she was young.
“Mga 6 na ako (noong nagsama kami). Kasi ‘di ako lumaki sa kanya, ang pinsan ko tawag sa kanya ay Tita so tawag ko sa kanya ay Tita din (noon),” she said.
But with the help of her relatives, she said finally became close with her mother.
“Kasi ‘yung mga Tita ko naman, ‘yung mga kapatid niya nae-explain naman. So bilang bata madaling mag-adjust pero iba ‘yung nakasanayan mo na iba ang rules. So noong umpisa ng pagsasama namin ay medyo nag-aaway, kasi bilang bata matigas ang ulo,” she said.
But after the adjustment period, she and her mom have become the best of friends.
“Ngayon sobrang bongga! Bonding talaga. Ang mommy ko sobrang understanding. ‘Yung lahat sinusuportahan niya ako, parang kaibigan ko siya talaga,” she said.
The actress said right now her mother is planning to have her own business.
Salvador is busy with her upcoming series “Ina, Anak, Kapatid” with showbiz friend Kim Chiu.
