Probably just as popular, or dare we say even just a tad bit more than eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao, his mother Dionesia Pacquiao has also made herself a very iconic figure in Philippine sports and pop culture.

Known as “Mommy D” or “Pacmom”, Dionesia Dapidran Pacquiao was born on May 15, 1949 in Saranggani, and along with the meteoric rise of his son Manny’s popularity, Mommy D has followed suit.

From aggressively praying to the high heavens for her son’s safety, to supposedly casting a curse on Manny’s opponents, Mommy D’s antics have more often than not made the news.

Still, it’s evident that Mommy D cares a great deal for her champion baby boy and is a big reason for who the people’s champ is today.

Happy Mothers' Day, Mommy D! You are truly one of a kind!
