Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 2) — Some things are more important than politics.

Hugpong ng Pagbabago Chairperson and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte was back in Davao in time for her youngest son's birthday.

Marko Digong "Stonefish" Duterte had a simple birthday party at a local fast food chain, attended by friends and family, including Duterte's three other children with Manases "Mans" Carpio - Mikhaila Maria (nicknamed Sharky) and Mateo Lucas (nicknamed Stingray).

"I will always be the cheerleader behind you," Duterte said in an Instagram post about her son.

The daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte has been actively campaigning for the 13 Senatorial bets supported by her regional political party for the 2019 elections.
