MANILA -- Celebrity house guest Alex Gonzaga opened up about her relationship with her mother.

On Sunday's episode of "Pinoy Big Brither: All-In," Alex and the other housemates, opened up about their relationship with their mothers.

Gonzaga admitted that she did not have a close relationship with her mother when she was young, as she thought her mother wouldn't be proud of her.

"So may times na parang iniisip ko na hindi proud sa akin ang mommy ko, kasi may times noong high school na pinapatawag siya palagi, (dahil sa) behavior (ko). So parang lagi akong ano sa kanya, aloof. Hindi ko sinasabi sa kanya ang mga problema ko ...siguro ayaw niya rin ako makita na weak," she said.

Gonzaga became closer with her mother only recently, when she decided to confide to her mother when she had a problem, instead of talking to her friend.

"Recently lang, noong nagka-problem ako, hindi na ako tumakbo sa friends ko, kinausap ko yung mommy ko. Tapos nagulat ako, kasi kapag pala nag-open up ka sa parents mo, di ba 'yung iba sa inyo nahihiya, kasi hindi kayo close. Pero kapag na-try nyo silang kausapin, sobra, iba 'yung love, iba 'yung care na mararamdaman mo kapag 'yung Mommy mo ang nag-comfort sayo. Tinatago ko yung problema ko sa Mommy ko pero sobra, may care pala siya," she said.

The other housemates were teary-eyed as they shared about their relationship with their own mothers, with some of them regretting the time they didn't get to spend with them.

"Pinoy Big Brother: All In" airs weeknights on Primetime Bida, and on Saturdays and Sundays as part of ABS-CBN's Yes! Weekend line-up. Afternoon updates are also aired via "Uber" on weekdays.
