After almost three years of waiting, Miguel Samuel Mateo Pangilinan was formally introduced by his famous parents to their closest friends in and out of showbiz, including media, through a lavish Thomas and Friends-themed birthday party held on October 27, 2012.
More than 200 people flocked the venue—Blue Leaf Events Pavilion, Park Avenue, Mc Kinley Hill in The Fort— where Miguel’s Christian dedication also took place.
After getting the nod of Senator Kiko Pangilinan, Miguel became part of the Pangilinan household.
The 49-year-old politician related, “Si Sharon ang tinawagan, e. Meron ngang little boy. Of course, wala kaming boy.
“And second, nung dumating ‘to sa bahay, ako, napag-isip-isip ko, bilang opisyal ng bansa… Eto ako, gumagawa ng batas para makakabuti sa ating mga kababayan, you’re doing it to make a difference sa buhay ng ating mga kababayan, ‘tapos itong buhay ng isang maliit, sasabihin mo hindi tatanggapin sa bahay?”
