They say that fatherhood is the most unsung role in the world.

In fact, everybody talks about the love and concern of a mother, but they never discuss the sacrifices that a father exerts for his family.

NO matter how busy he is attending to his athletic and legislative chores, Sen. Manny Pacquiao still makes sure to spend time with his wife, Jinkee, and five children.

But these super athletes don’t mind.

For them, they are willing to do everything for their family even if they go unnoticed, unloved or unappreciated. Their favorite role is not on the court or on top of a boxing ring, but right inside their own homes as loving fathers.

No less than Sen. Manny Pacquiao displays on social media that he still spends some quality time with his wife, Jinkee, and their five children despite his very hectic schedule.

Another Filipino boxer in Nonito Donaire Jr. also does the same as he and his wife, Rachel, make sure that their two kids, Jarel and Logan, are doing well in school despite the long hours they spend in preparing for a major fight.

Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) stars Paul Lee of Magnolia, Jvee Casio of Alaska, James Yap of Rain or Shine, CJ Perez of San Miguel Beer and Jayson Castro of TNT Tropang Giga also proudly display that they are playing the role of a father to perfection.

Lee has been very vocal in professing his love and affection to his daughter, Tokyo, while Casio and Yap bare that family is all they have.
Perez, however, offers a very touching story.

DESPITE growing up without spending time with his father, CJ Perez of San Miguel Beer still makes sure to be the best dad to his daughter.

Despite having no chance to meet his dad, Perez still makes sure to be the best father to his daughters — Ciana Tanisha and Teyana Laquisha — to the point that they were with him when he accepted the PBA Rookie of the Year award last year.

ALASKA gunner Jvee Casio considers his wife, Jackie, and daughter, Jaica, as his sweetest downfalls.

“I am a responsible father to my children because I want to make them experience the kind of love and care that I never had from my dad growing up,” Perez said.

“I may be very busy with my basketball career, but when I get home, I only have one role — being a father.”
Yes, being a father isn’t easy.

JAYSON Castro of TNT Tropang Giga swears that he is a dad first and star playmaker second.

But for these athletes, it doesn’t matter.

They are willing to overcome all kind of hurdles just for the sake of their children.
