FAMILY always comes first for rising TNT forward Don Trollano, currently one of the major players in the already contentious 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup finals that just got more controversial last night.
"After a game night, kinabukasan ng umaga ihahatid at susunduin pa rin niya yung anak niya sa school," Patricia Palacol, Don's long-time partner, shares in a brief chat with SPIN Life. "Parang hindi siya napapagod when it comes to family."
She's appreciative of Don's unwavering attitude towards their family and how he manages to stay as a hands-on partner and father to her and their child.
"Five a.m., gigising pa rin siya, kami. Super maalaga pa rin siya," Patricia says.
Patricia makes it a point to reward Don any way she can — from cooking for him at home to giving him a massage, to listening to his post-game sentiments.
"I just let him open up after game," Patricia says. "Supporta ko talaga is yung pagdating sa bahay, giving him yung care na kailangan niya."
She also shares that their family is actually very spontaneous when it comes to planning family activities.
"Actually we don't really plan ahead kasi it's really hard to adjust, especially ako kasi nagla-law school ako, tapos yung anak ko rin may pasok every day."
