Duterte’s birthday gifts to Elizabeth Zimmerman: Red roses, kiss & marriage proposal
Love and respect have remained between President Duterte and his former wife Elizabeth Zimmerman even after their separation.
The President attended the birthday party of Zimmerman in Davao City on Saturday, giving her a flower bouquet, planting a kiss, and offering marriage if given another chance.
“Given another chance, another life, I would still marry Elizabeth. Because that is love,” the President was quoted as saying during the birthday affair.
Duterte also sang his favorite tune “Ikaw” in honor of his former ladylove. They also joined the rest of the First family for a celebratory photo during the event.
Photos of the birthday celebration were shared on social media by Davao City information officer Jefry Tupas.
Duterte was married to Zimmerman for over 25 years with three children, Sara, Paolo and Sebastian. Zimmerman filed for an annulment of the marriage in 1998 over Duterte’s alleged infidelity.
