From the moment she set foot in the famous Bahay ni Kuya, Heaven Peralejo has been known to speak frankly and address controversies head on--something that hasn't stopped in the years since. Just this month alone, rumors circulated that the young actress supposedly asked for P100,000 from her ex's wealthy parents, Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao, but the Pacquiao family, including Jimuel, immediately came to Heaven's defense after Heaven herself shut down the allegations.
Below, a list of eight things to know about former PBB teen housemate Heaven Peralejo:
Heaven has a super close relationship with her mom, Shiela Luanne Peralejo.
Heaven was a teen housemate in 2016's Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7 along with Maymay Entrata, Kisses Delavin, Vivoree Esclito, Edward Barber, Marco Gallo, and Christian Morones. She was 16 years old at the time, and her mom Luanne was undergoing treatment for cancer. Heaven considers her mom her best friend and was her primary motivation during her stay in the PBB house.
During a brief window where she was allowed to go to the hospital by Kuya, Heaven got to visit Luanne. Upon her return, Heaven announced that she was pulling herself out of the competition as she felt she needed to be with her mom.
Heaven and Luanne got matching tattoos in 2019.
Fast forward to present time, Luanne has recovered from her sickness and the two seem closer than ever. They even got matching tattoos of two birds during a trip to South Korea in 2019! According to Heaven, it symbolizes their love for travel, and getting lost together.
"There were a lot of times when we were lost commuting but we didn't care because we knew that as long as we're together we can face it with a brave heart similar to how we face our daily battles in our lives," she said.
When not traveling, Heaven and her mom love to watch movies and K-drama together. Growing up, they'd always go on movie nights and would sometimes even watch three films in one night. (via Pep.ph)
