MANILA – Phoemela Baranda does not mind if ever former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Manolo Pedrosa decides to pursue her daughter Nichole.

In fact, the model-host praised Pedrosa for his "good upbringing."

Manolo has referred to Nichole as someone special while both of them were still inside the famous yellow house.

In a text message she sent to "Kris TV" head writer Darla Sauler, Phoemela said Pedrosa seems to be a good guy and she is hoping he and Nichole would have a project together soon.

“I can see that they get along well now and if Manolo decides to pursue Nichole, I’m good with it. Pero sana work muna,” she said.

“The housemates have a lot of activities especially this week… so Nichole gets to see Manolo a lot. They also had their workshop last week, Manolo and Nichole. And every time I’d call Nichole, Manolo would say hi naman. I could see the good upbringing of Manolski. I’m happy that they’re busy with work and I hope they get to do a project together soon,” Phoemela added.

But just like every mother, Phoemela hopes her daughter would still prioritize her education.

“Nichole will continue her studies in CSA (Colegio de San Agustin) for now and hope we can manage her schedule, well, in case they have a project already,” she said.

“Pinoy Big Brother” ended its latest season last Sunday with Japanese-Brazilian model Daniel Matsunaga as its big winner.
