Heart Evangelista has proven time-and-again that she’s a true Crazy Rich Asian. From being a first class jet-setter, to donning her designer collection on an almost daily basis, this actress and entrepreneur is practically the real-life Astrid Leong of the Philippines, even down to her (past) shopping habits.
Speaking of shopping though, despite all this, you might be surprised to know that someone actually has Heart beat. It’s true, and who else would it be then her own dad, Rey Ongpauco.
As per Heart, Rey’s actually the shopaholic of the fam. She even revealed that his motto in life is, “Life’s too short to be in ugly clothes!” This dapper dad is in firm belief that if you like it, you should definitely go for the purchase. “He would even dress up my mom when they were younger,” Heart shared with Preview.
A particular stickler for snazzy jackets, among Rey’s favorite brands to shop are Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Hugo Boss, Versace, Dior, and Ralph Lauren—and he knows just how to style them, too, much like his daughter.
However, if there’s anything that tops Rey’s penchant for shopping, it’s his unmatched generosity. Admired by Heart for his humility, the successful restaurateur has even been known to hand over his watch or wallet to friends that so much as point out how nice his accessories are. “He was very lucky with his life and he would share that,” added the actress.
A self-proclaimed daddy’s little girl, Heart maintains a close-knit relationship with her father. She occasionally shares photos of him on her Instagram, and has even featured him on her YouTube channel to teach her viewers how to cook pata tim and his secret bagoong recipe.
