Freddie Didn't Like His Grandma

Freddie gave an interview to The Bearded Hippie, where he talked about his dad, career, and many more. 

He talked about his grandmom, Mary. He said his father was raised by his grandmom, who treated him like every Puerto Rican people treat their babies. 

He said he didn't have a great relationship with his grandma because she always talked badly about his mom, and he didn't like that. 

He opened up that his grandmom passed away a few years back and said he had so many questions that he wanted to ask her. 

He asked her questions about his dad to his grandma when she was alive, but those were all simple questions, but hard questions were still left to ask his grandma. 

As his dad was his grandmom's baby, she always told him how perfect his dad was and how good he was. He was unable to find the truth from his grandmom. 

He also talked about his grandmom's brother and his uncle. His uncle was his father's manager and said he had been the manager of many musicians. 

He asked many questions about his dad to his uncle. Freddie then said that his dad hated being called Chico. The interviewer didn't know what Chico meant, so Freddie said that Chico meant a boy. 

His dad was hardworking, and he talked about his dad working continuously for two years straight without taking a break when he was 20 years old

His dad got famous when he was young. He talked about many other things in the interview.

Freddie’s Way To Make Marriage Work 

Freddie and his wife, Sarah Michelle, are one of the most adored couples in Hollywood. 

They have been married for more than two decades and are still going strong. 

In this generation, people are getting lots of divorces, but Freddie and Sarah are one of the few couples who are always ready to make their relationship work anyhow. 

In the interview with CVV CLIPS, the interviewer asked how and what Freddie does to make his marriage work. 

Firstly, he said that he didn’t have any answer to the question. He has been asked the same question many times, and every time he has a question, he doesn’t know what to answer.

But he later said that he and his wife sacrifice a lot of things when it's necessary, and that’s why they have a long, healthy marriage life. 

They both put equal effort into making things work between them. He even suggested people not to get married if they are not ready to give it 100% on it. 

It’s absolutely okay for people to make money, achieve their dreams first, and then later be in a relationship. 

Freddie feels that nowadays, modern rap songs are so honest as they talk about money and building yourself, and he agrees with it because once people achieve their dreams, there won’t be a need to sacrifice their relationship. They can fully focus and give their best on it. 

Freddie and Sarah both are from acting backgrounds, and there were many boys having a crush on Sarah and girls having a crush on Freddie. 

But it never mattered to them because they were into each other. As an actor, he had to kiss many actresses on camera, but he didn’t like doing it because he was committed to Sarah. 

Despite that, he has to do it because it’s his job. He said that disciplined people have raised him, so he is very humble and disciplined, and that thing helps him to establish a healthy married life.


Kathy was born on January 28, 1950. Her current age is 72 years old.
