Almost a month after his rumored fling won the Miss Universe title, President Benigno Aquino III on Friday finally had something to say about Pia Wurtzbach’s controversial victory.
In an interview, Aquino said he was happy Wurtzbach achieved her dream of becoming the most beautiful woman in the universe.
“Siyempre, natuwa tayong lahat na nanalo siya. Siguro para baka magkakaroon ng sealing doon sa aspect na kung paano siya nanalo na, paano ba, may disappointment bago may joy,” Aquino said..
“Iyong point na pinaghirapan naman niya talaga itong pagkapanalo niya. Nakikita naman niyo ‘yung sacrifice involved for somebody to that level. And I’m really glad that she achieved one of her dreams,” he added.
Aquino and Wurtzbach were rumored to have gone out on dates, but presidential sister Kris Aquino thinks the beauty queen did not like the 55-year-old bachelor president.
