CORRECTION please, Ian F. Pokwang denies she’s 46.
Forty four years old lang daw siya.
Well, as the saying goes, for a woman, age do matter talaga.
Pokwang admits, though, na nearly two months na siya with the baby she’s carrying courtesy of her American boyfriend Lee O’Brien.
Nag-aaral ng Culinary Arts, we heard, ang nag-iisa at panganay na anak ni Pokwang na si Ria Mae sa Enderun College, Fort Bonifacio.
Balak daw na eventually ipagpatayo ni Pokwang ng restaurant ang anak.

Now in his 70s, Direk Peque Gallaga was one of the most-awarded directors of his time.
Even fellow directors salute him for his works. Hanggang ngayon, ayon sa mga nakapanood ng kanyang unang film-obra na Scorpio Nights, ay naniniwalang isa ito sa great Filipino films of all time.
Scorpio Nights starred now Bulacan Vice Governor Daniel Fernando, na napapanood daily sa series na Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin starring Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson.
Paired with Vice Gov. Daniel then was another newcomer, the late Ana Marie Gutierrez.
