Actress and mompreneur Dimples Romana showed great appreciation for her husband Boyet Ahmee’s sacrifices for their family.
Romana made public her tribute via an Instagram post yesterday, July 1, sharing a photo of her husband while attending to their third baby, Elio.
“My hubby of 19 years, we fight a lot. We have disagreed a million times often we forget how we even ended up together. Our love has had its many seasons, but if there is one thing I can never disregard is how he’s been an amazing father to our kids,” she said.
Romana’s husband made the ultimate sacrifice of quitting his corporate job a decade back, investing in businesses, and focusing on being a husband and a dad.
“It wasn’t a popular decision then, we found ourselves having to explain why we chose this set up but eventually people understood,” she said.
While she was always out for work then when they only had their daughter Callie, they felt they had to make “certain adjustments for our family to thrive and somehow get financial stability without having to sacrifice the way we wanted to raise our kids.”
“Though it would’ve been nice sana kung dalawa kaming present palagi (if we were both present) for the kids, we can’t. We had to make painful sacrifices of being away from each other. And we didn’t want the kids to be without any of the two of us at home,” she said.
As such, their daughter had her “dad present in every moment in her life, mundane and momentous.”

“Every swimming, figure skating and tennis practice. Every random date to the mall, watch a movie, see a concert – HE was there with her,” she said.
The same is true when Alonzo came as Boyet “[brought] him to school everyday, face to face [pre-pandemic] and online school.”
“Boyet had to relearn first grade lessons and start over, he didn’t mind. He was always present. Now that Kuya Alonzo plays ice hockey, he puts on maybe 10 [to] 15 pieces of clothing and gear, they go an hour to skate prior to actual scrimmage, B patiently does this and I have seen the joy in his eyes when he watches our boy play.”
Now that she’s just given birth, Romana admits she was remiss in taking care of their baby because she has been weak, having gone through cesarean operation.
“I haven’t been much help to him in taking care of Elio. But not once did I hear him complain having to carry him over and over with the late night til morning staring contests with baby Elio, he’s always present,” she said.
“Ta, sorry for the many times I have overlooked and taken for granted the little and big things you do for us,” Romana addressed her husband. “I woke up feeling so blessed I have [you].” JB
