Bing Loyzaga: the wife and the mom

Yes, she is the daughter of professional basketball player, Kaloy Loyzaga, and sister of Chito, Teresa and Joey. But Bing Loyzaga earned her place to the Philippine entertainment industry through an endorsement for a toothpaste commercial (Colgate) in the mid-80s, singing “I Smile For You”.

She is married to Janno Gibbs, a comedian and a singer, whom she has two children with, Alyssa and Gabby. She played as Isabelita in the Filipino film classic Sinasamba Kita aired on GMA Network. The Sine Novela, as it came to be called, was adapted in the comics novel written by Gilda Olvidado.

She also starred in Enteng Kabisote 3, a joint venture of OctoArts Films and M-Zet TV Production for the 2006 Metro Film Festival, as the villainess Satana. She acted as the motherly aunt of Gerald Anderson in the series My Girl.
Her personal character was tested though when Janno was linked with a number of women— Cristine Reyes, Gladys Guevarra, Lian Paz, Regine Velasquez and Jackie Foster.

But throughout her ordeals, she remained forgiving. She opened her heart to mend her relationship with the man who broke her trust. She reconciled with Foster after their six-year rift in a church service in Fort Bonifacio.

She accepted change and did something about it. She underwent a medical procedure to get her figure as well as her confidence back.

As of now, she’s working for the soap opera, Agua Bendita, as a social climber. She is still with her two daughters as well as with her legal husband.

“Akala ko noon, Gabriela Silang ang pangalan ko, e, yun pala Bing Loyzaga lang talaga. Pero yun nga, you accept things as it is, not something else when it’s really not.” -Bing Loyzaga
