Maribel is mother to Emanuele Carlos who is now 6 years old. While their positions and involvements put them frequently in the public eye, she and Mayor Bobby hope to give Carlos a normal childhood. They support his total development.
She is a devoted wife even outside the public eye. She and Mayor Bobby make it a point to spend as much time as they can with each other. Like other normal couples, they watch movies together and they go on coffee dates, often talking about how their day went.
Maribel also heads the City's Gender and Development (GAD) office, the Pasiguenos' Organization for Women Empowerment (POWER) and the Girl Scouts of Pasig, all of which allow her to emphasize the important role women play in the development of society.
