Ogie Diaz considers Liza Soberano as “blessing” in his life

Talent manager and showbiz reporter Ogie Diaz said during his guesting on ABS-CBN’s morning show “Magandang Buhay” that he considers actress Liza Soberano as a blessing in his life.

Diaz is the one who manages Soberano’s career and said that the latter’s showbiz projects and product endorsements were the ones who kept his youngest child alive.

It can be recalled that it was in 2017 when Diaz revealed that his youngest child was born premature.

“Ngayon ‘yung bunso ko 10 months old na. … Six months inilabas na, 680 grams noong inilabas. Parang fetus lang,” Diaz said in a previous interview with DZMM.

He added that his child was placed inside an incubator for four months and he spent around P2.5 million for it.

“Isang biyayang malaki si Liza sa akin. Pagkatapos namin na maghiwalay ni Vice Ganda, dumating si Liza Soberano. Sabi nga nila kapag may nagsasara ng pinto, may nagbubukas na bubong. Noong 2011 naghiwalay kami ni Vice Ganda; 2012 siya (si Liza) dumating. So alam mo ‘yung marunong ang Diyos at the same time ay magkakaibigan pa rin kami ni Vice Ganda,” Diaz said on Magandang Buhay.

He added: “Bukod doon, alam mo feeling ko sa sarili ko, si Liza ang bumuhay sa bunso kong anak. So, parang hindi ko nano-notice na nabobokya ako dahil may pumapasok na trabaho kay Liza, at the same time nahahawaan kami ni Dudu. So malaki talagang blessing si Liza kaya siguro nagpa-pay forward kami para mas tuloy-tuloy ang blessings.”

Ernesto “Dudu” Unay was the one who discovered Soberano before Diaz managed the actress.

Likewise, Soberano is also thankful for everything that Diaz has done for her.

“Tinulungan niya po kami nung wala pa ako. Hanggang ngayon kapag may mga problema ako, sa kanya po ako lumalapit at siya po ‘yung nagpi-figure out kung ano ang dapat kong gawin,” Soberano said.
