Watch: Presumptive President Duterte’s Youngest Daughter Kitty Speaks About Her Father (Video)
Veronica ‘Kitty’ Duterte, the youngest daughter of presumptive President Rodrigo ‘Rody’ Duterte, finally speaks about her father after the recent presidential elections. Born on April 10, 2004, Kitty Duterte is Mayor Rody Duterte’s daughter with his common-law wife, Cieleto ‘Honeylet’ Avanceña. Watch the Kitty Duterte interview video below.
“Loving, caring, funny.” Kitty Duterte told the interviewer when she was asked how Mayor Rody Duterte is as a father, and agreed to the fact that her father is totally opposite of what many of his critics sees at him. The smart-looking and cute Duterte daughter was consistently seen with the president-elect during the election campaign.
The interviewer then asked Kitty Duterte if she is afraid of her father when she sees him on TV, and she shook her head. When asked why, she said she and her father happens to have similar attitude. The 15-second video was uploaded at Kitty Duterte’s Facebook page. But because she is only 12 years old, someone else manages it for her.
Incidentally, this is not the first time that Kitty Duterte was interviewed. Last April, Rappler had a chance to talk with her during her father’s campaign rally in Lipa, Batangas. She is usually seen on stage with Duterte, whispering to him, reminding her father about time, and that the campaign team has other schedules to follow.
“I feel tired but we have to support him,” Kitty Duterte told Rappler when asked about her experience while campaigning in various areas in the country. But what happens if her father does not follow her advice? “I don’t talk to him and then he’ll hug me and say, ‘I’m sorry.’” she said, adding that she is very thankful to all the supporters.
“He loves the country and he will take care of the people, he will take care of the Filipinos.” The young Duterte said when asked if she thinks that Mayor Duterte can be a good president. But in case you did not know, Honeylet Avanceña and President-elect Duterte have been living together for 20 years now, and Kitty Duterte was born in the US.
