Despite being burdened with hectic schedules, Senator Manny Pacquiao and Jinkee Pacquiao remain hands-on in raising their five children.
Being such famous personalities, we have witnessed the Pacquiao kids grow up via TV guestings and photo updates on social media. As a matter of fact, if you happen to come across the couple’s Instagram account, you would see how their children have grown up over the past few years.
Just recently, their eldest son Emmanuel Pacquiao, Jr. — also known as Jimuel — made rounds online. What caught the attention of netizens was how Jimuel has blossomed into the good-looking teen that he is today.
Just like his father, Jimuel loves the performing arts.
Moreover, he can also play a musical instrument.
His fans and Instagram followers describe him as a “God-fearing and humble” guy.
Being the eldest in the family, Jimuel is a loving kuya to his siblings.

During his birthday on February 6, Jimuel’s mother took to Instagram to greet him. Jinkee’s sweet message reads:
“Happy birthday greetings to an awesome son. I am truly blessed by God because He gave me a son like you. May all your deepest hopes and dreams come true by the guidance of the Lord. I know you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. I love you, my son!”
Presently, Jimuel studies in General Santos. In 2015, Manny Pacquiao explained in an interview why he and his wife decided to enroll their children to schools in his home province. According to him, they did it so that their children could experience what it feels to live a simple life.
“Gusto namin na ma-experience nila at makasama nila yung mga mahihirap na mga bata, ‘yung hirap din ng buhay na dinaanan namin. Gusto namin balikan yung mga tao na nangangailangan ng tulong at gusto naming tumulong sa kanila kasi nanggaling kami sa ganoong buhay.”
