Danica Sotto On Why Her Marriage To Mark Pingris Works

DANICA SOTTO-PINGRIS is very happy co-hosting TV5's morning show for women, “Happy Wife Happy Life” with Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla and LJ Moreno-Alapag. “We all get along fine with our own segments at maganda ang working relationship namin as a team,” she says.

She’s been married to cager Mark Pingris for 8 years now. What’s the secret of their happy marriage? “I think the real secret is our faith in God. I don’t feel I’m an expert na after 8 years, kasi I know marami pa kaming pagdaraanan as a couple. But as long as pareho kayong naniniwala kay God, may fear kayo sa Kanya, pareho kayong mage-effort na laging maging matino to make your marriage work, di ba? And He will always be there to guide you both.”

If ever her dad, Vic Sotto, would marry current GF Pauleen Luna, would she accept her as a stepmom?
“Siempre naman, if ever dumating ang araw na ‘yan, alangan namang hindi ko siya i-welcome? Okay naman kami ni Pauleen, e. What I do now is I’m just praying for them. I have a good relationship with my Dad and Pauleen. I respect them at kung anuman ang magiging decision nila in the future. Tapos na ang responsibilities ng Dad ko sa aming mga anak niya kaya wala ako sa posisyon na kontrahin kung anuman ang magiging decision niya. He deserves his own happiness. Basta I will pray na kung magiging sila nga, sana forever na. Kasi ayoko ring merong masasaktan sa kanila.”
