A measure seeking to grant Filipino citizenship to Sen. Manny Pacquiao’s American aide was filed on Tuesday in the House of Representatives.

Principally authored by 1Pacman Reps. Mikee Romero and Eric Pineda, House Bill No. 2485 seeks to grant Philippine Citizenship to 26-year old American David Loran Sisson.

Sisson, a native of Oklahoma City, is Pacquiao’s personal assistant for almost five years.

Sisson and his parents decided to move to Pacquiao’s hometown in General Santos City in the late 2000s to work as Christian Missionaries in the area but not until the eight-division boxing champion became a born-again Christian sometime in 2012 that they formally met and became closer.

Due to his family’s missionary work, he became fluent both in Tagalog and Bisaya.

In a report by GMA 7 in 2015, Sisson said he considers himself “American by blood but Filipino by heart.”

Sisson in 2016 married Filipina Ruthie Alonzo and already has a daughter with her.
