Mar's Mom Confirms His Romance With Korina

CLARK FIELD, Pampanga - Mom is always the last to know.

Judy Araneta Roxas, widow of Sen. Gerardo Roxas, has confirmed reports that her son, Koalisyon ng Karanasan at Katapatan para sa Kinabukasan (K-4) senatorial candidate Manuel "Mar" Roxas II, has indeed been dating ABS-CBN broadcaster Korina Sanchez.

Mrs. Roxas, however, said the rumors came first. "The mother is the last to know," she told The STAR in an interview at the commemoration of the 56th death anniversary of her father-in-law, President Manuel Roxas.

While she said her son and Sanchez indeed "go out" on dates, she added that she will respect her son's decisions concerning his love life.

Born May 13, 1957, Roxas has been tagged one of the country's most eligible bachelors. Besides being the grandson of a president, the son of a senator and a scion of the wealthy Araneta clan, he served as trade and industry secretary until he resigned to join the senatorial race.

In a recent survey, Roxas topped the list of senatorial candidates, pushing movie actor and erstwhile Videogram Regulatory Board (VRB)chairman Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr., his colleague in the K-4 ticket, down to the second slot.

The good news for Mar's female fans is that Mrs. Roxas believes the relationship between her son and Sanchez has not grown "that serious yet."

However, she refused to comment further on the matter, saying, "I don't want to be a meddling mother, so let's leave it at that."
