President Duterte is saddened after learning her daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Caprio lost two of her unborn triplets.
Shedding his tough guy image, the President admitted he cried when learned about the incident while attending the regional summit in Laos.
“Maski noong una pa yan it took her a long time to be pregnant and you, know, with the medical intervention,” said Duterte. “When somebody called me, I went to the bathroom and, sa labas kasi nasa lobby kami, I cried, I cried.”
“These are the things in life na cannot be assuaged by just…you have to heal yourself. And anyway, thank you for asking,” added Duterte.
Mayor Duterte recently went on a medical checkup and found out identical twins no longer had any heartbeats.
When news first broke out Sarah was expecting triplets last month, the President said she was “happy” about the pregnancy of his daughter, adding he was eager to take care of his grandchildren. (Genalyn D. Kabiling)
