There’s no doubt that being a single parent has its own emotional battles and a weight of stigmatization, especially in our country. While there are a lot of single mom’s out there who could barely make it through a day, we salute how actress Meryll Soriano managed to conquer the path of parenthood alone.
She had the courage to raise her son alone and now we have seen that her hard work has finally paid off.
Elijah Pineda Palanca is the son of Meryll Soriano with her ex-husband Bernard Palanca. At such a young age, he already got his mom’s features especially her eyes.
His mom’s nickname for him is “Eli” or sometimes with the endearment “Boo”.
He is also the grandson of the famous television host, Willie Revillame. Similar to his grandfather, he is likely to take over the showbiz industry too someday, maybe as an actor. But according to his mom, Eli loves to write and he even wrote a script himself.
The mother-and-son duo even went to different places already. They both love to travel together and bond by doing different activities such as skating and boxing.
Meryll’s adorable boy is also close with his half-brother from his father, Bernard. They are sometimes spotted hanging out together as a family and it’s the sweetest thing ever!
