WITH actress Sofia Andres and boyfriend Daniel Miranda’s announcement that they are parents to a baby girl over the weekend, pinag-usapan na sa internet ang makulay na buhay ng kanyang mapangangasawa na si Daniel na galing raw sa pamilyang may perang talaga, or old-money as other people would like to put it, ang kanyang pagiging tagapamana ng isang napakayamang pamilya.
Bilang anak nina Martin Miranda at Angelique Lhuillier, lumaki si Daniel Miranda kasama ang younger brother niyang si Enrique sa Cebu.
Ang ina ni Daniel ay isang entrepreneur samantala ang kanyang amang si Martin, has been a karter, motocross rider, and drag-racer.
“Daniel and his brother Enrique used to ride with me with their pocket bikes, but when I got really busy, I couldn’t join and teach them anymore,” Martin Miranda intoned.
“And since it’s a dangerous sport, I decided to have them do karting instead, but it was Daniel, who picked it up at a competitive level, while his brother loves it just as a hobby,” he added as an after thought.
Enrique was able to graduate from the Australian Catholic University in Sydney, and is able to work at the PJ Lhuillier Group of Companies as an intern, trainee, and pawnshop operations associate.
As a child, Daniel showed an early interest in cars and racing.
As a young man, he said that he asked his parents if he could try karting at first, and from there he began a career in racing.
Since then, nakapag-compete na siya in car racing internationally in countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Macau, and more.
And with that, ito po ang Kuya Pete ninyo na nagsasabing, Christopher, my son, I love you very, very much, my love for you goes beyond eternity.
Adios. Mabalos. I always need you, Nhong!
