Kasi siyempre, dun ko rin nakita kung paano niya alagaan nang mabuti si Daddy. Makikita mo naman si Daddy na he’s happy at okey ang health niya. Nawala na yung pagkailang ko kapag nandiyan si Pauleen sa mga family gatherings namin.” Danica said during the press launch with Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP).

Despite all of these considerations, Danice remained open and considerate of her father’s happiness. After all, she finally claimed that she had accepted Pauline as his father’s legal wife.
“Before nandoon yung awkwardness, kasi nga parang magbabarkada lang kami. Hindi naman siya yung madali naming matanggap,.. Ang daming apprehension. Nandoon yung, ‘Uy, ano ba ‘to? Paano ba ‘to?’ Marami akong mga questions. Marami akong gustong sabihin tungkol sa relationship nila pero lahat yun, wala na. Kasi nagkaroon na ng acceptance, ngayon wala nang ilangan sa amin. I can honestly say na wala na,” Danica added.
Danica would be starting her TV career again as a host of the lifestyle show, MomBiz.
