NOYNOY AQUINO – The best friend of the late former President Benigno Simeon Aquino III and his nephew, Jiggy Cruz, revealed that he almost got married.
The Filipinos were left grieving over the unexpected death of the late former Pres. Noynoy Aquino. He died of a renal disease secondary to diabetes. The public is not aware of what he went through in his health.
Since PNoy stepped down from office in 2016, he was out from the public’s eye. He live in his family’s home in Times Street in Quezon City. He died a bachelor but he has always been very close to his nephews most especially to Josh Aquino.
Last June 24, the staffs of the former President found him unconscious in his reclining chair in the morning. He was rushed to Capitol Medical Center and was declared dead a few minutes since his arrival to the hospital. Many were shocked by the death of PNoy.
Many of people were quick to pay tribute to the late former President. His humility, kindness, and simplicity were the things most cited about him. Some of those he had special relationships with in the past were also saddened by his death.
Recently, the best friend and the nephew of the late former Pres. Noynoy Aquino revealed that he almost got married before. Speaking to Jing Castaneda, PNoy’s best friend Romy Mercado shared the late former President wanted to have a family.
“Kaya kapag nakikita niya iyong mga kapatid niya, kami mga kaibigan niya na may mga anak niya, ako may apo na, eh gusto niya. Hindi lang iyong partner but he tried,” Mercado said.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Mercado did not name the woman that the late former Pres. Noynoy Aquino almost married but he recalled that he met her before he ran for Congress in 1994 in Tarlac. The best friend of the late former President described the woman as “beautiful and intelligent”. They even led to wedding preparations.
According to PNoy’s nephew, Jiggy Cruz, their family likes the girlfriend of his uncle and “she was really nice”. However, he got busy in serving in the Congress and he probably lost time.
“Iyon ang nakikita ko na hindi na kagaya bago niya naging congressman, sa Luisita na natatawagan niya araw-araw. Ayon napuputol na,” Mercado expressed.
PNoy’s best friend revealed that there were times when the former President would mention that he miss his ex-girlfriend. He thinks she was ready to settle down with him but PNoy was not ready at that time.
