TINA PANER NOW A HAPPY WIFE AND MOTHER

TINA PANER PHOTOManila, May 1, 2003 -- This is an update on Tina Paner, the "prodigal" daughter of Daisy Romualdez (actually her aunt, Tina's biological mother being Daisy's younger sister) who has been missing from the showbiz scene for quite a while. The last time Tina was heard of, she was, as usual, bumping heads with her Mommy Daisy who frowned on Tina's decision to live with a woman deemed by Daisy to have a "shady" reputation.

It's public knowledge that mother and daughter made explosive headlines with their fights, one of which made Tina pack her things and run away. But blood is thicker than water and they would soon make up only to fight again and break up.

Early last year, Daisy simply erased Tina from her life and memory, resigned as she was that Tina's stubborness was, sigh, incurable.

Fast-forward to April, 2003: Imagine how pleasantly surprised Daisy was when she got an unexpected call from Tina, bearing tidings of great joy. It turned out that Tina had gotten married to a Spaniard, also into his early '30s like her, and a scion of a wealthy family based in Manila. The couple is now living in Spain where they own a cozy apartment with their two-month-old firstborn, a boy with black hair and light-gray eyes who caught the attention of everybody last Lent when the "family 3" went on a cruise.

"The rest of the kids on board were blonde," Tina told Mommy Daisy, "kaya pinag-kaguluhan ang anak namin dahil siya lang ang naiiba."

You guessed it: Daisy and Tina have buried the hatchet for good, let bygones be bygones and are eager for their reconciliation maybe next year.

"Tina has changed a lot," said the teary-eyed Daisy. "Sabi niya, 'Sorry, Mommy, for giving you all those heartaches'. Part of growing up, sabi ko naman sa kanya."

As they say all's well that ends well.

Now Tina should know how it is to be a mother...
