  • Moms have been always been likened to superheroes because of the amazing powers they possess: giving birth, producing breast milk, juggling a hundred different tasks at a time, putting others first before themselves. 

    Over the weekend, actress Dimples Romana proved she is all that and more. Now that she has retired the infamous red dress of Daniela Mondragon with the conclusion of the highly successful ABS-CBN teleserye "Kadenang Ginto," the 35-year-old mom of two said on her Youtube video that she wanted to do something for her youngest child Alonzo Romeo Jose


    "Naisip ko, dahil ang tagal kong hindi nakasama yung pamilya ko, I wanted to surprise Alonzo kasi siya talaga yung pinaka-nahirapan through the whole process kasi di niya ako halos nakikita," she said in the intro.

    The idea to surprise Alonzo in an Iron Man costume came to Dimples when she met Mark Rodil, a costume and props maker, on the set. Since Iron Man is Alonzo's favorite superhero, Dimples commissioned Mark to customize for her an Iron Man suit.

    The plan was set: she was going to tell her young boy that she's off to work, don the costume in another room, and come back to say hello to Alonzo as Iron Man. It was a perfect gift for his 5th birthday!

    And so it happened. While putting on the 16-piece suit, Dimples quipped, "Ang hirap maging nanay, lahat talaga gagawin mo" in jest. The costume came complete with an arc reactor (the light on the body armor) and a helmet and face plate that opens with a push of a button.

    "Malalaman natin mamaya kung the best mom tayo kay Alonzo," she added.


    The look on Alonzo's face was priceless as he opened the door and came face-to-face with "Iron Man". He was ecstatic as the superhero shook his hand, danced with him, and went out with him for a stroll. 

    "I've never found a real Iron Man!" he said. He just couldn't believe his eyes and had to feel the armor a couple of times to make sure he wasn't dreaming.

    When it was time to reveal who was inside the suit, Alonzo couldn't believe it was his mom all along. 

    "You're MOM??!! I didn't expect that," he exclaimed.

    The look on Alonzo's face says his day was definitely made.

    Dimples says she was very happy that she was able to pull off this surprise for her son. 

    "Ang sarap pala to go out of your way to make your kids happy, yung mga simple joys nila naibibigay mo."
