Actor Wowie de Guzman proved that he should not only be admired for his talent but also for the strength he showed after his wife suddenly passed away. Four years ago, on April 26, the famous actor endured a most heartbreaking feeling any husband might feel – the fact that the love of his life, the mother of his children would never open her eyes again.
Sheryl Ann Reyes passed away just one month after giving birth to their daughter. In an interview with ABS-CBN, Wowie divulged that Sheryl had been experiencing muscle aches and took a painkiller the night before she died. When she came back to bed, her eyes suddenly dilated and Wowie could feel her body stiffening.
They rushed her to a hospital but it was reported that Sheryl died before they could do anything. In the blink of an eye, Wowie lost the person he loved most. It was going to be a difficult journey but he would continue to remain strong for the sake of their only child, Alexandra Rafaelle.
Four years have passed and Wowie continues to be a great single father to Raff. Single parents who have gone through a similar situation will no doubt find the encouragement and inspiration they need when they look at the life of this actor.
As any responsible single parent, Wowie turned the unfortunate situation around and focused on becoming the best dad to his daughter. We can see that they enjoy spending quality time together, judging from their social media posts. The father-daughter bond that these two share is no doubt unbreakable.
There is no question that his wife would be proud of him for efforts, putting Raff’s happiness before his own. He did say that they had big plans for their daughter and where they are now, emotionally, is definitely a step in the right direction.
