“ILUMINA" actor Cesar Montano is happy that Diego is adjusting well, saying his son is keeping up with his showbiz and family life.

Cesar said they are slowly building the bond between them again and he is grateful that ex-partner Teresa Loyzaga allowed Diego to stay here in Manila for good.

“Nung malayo sya talagang nagiging madalang yung pagkikita namin pero ngayon na bumalik na sya dito, tapos sa akin sya nakatira parang may flashback sa akin eh,” he said.

Diego initially lived with his mom in Australia and this is the only time that Teresa allowed him to stay longer in Manila.

Cesar also said his son is studying already in OB Montessori and they are constantly together and are very fond of playing basketball and boxing.

He added that his son likes to enter showbizness but he advised him to finish his studies first and to take Tagalog lessons.

The actor said when he updated Teresa with the latest development in Diego's life in Manila, she was very happy that her son is also meeting a lot of people in and out of the entertainment industry.

“Tuwang tuwa sya. Binalita ko sa kanya na naka-enroll na sya (Diego) tapos nakilala na nya yung ibang artista,” he said.

Cesar is happy and contented with his successful family life and his comeback on television as a Kapuso.
