DAVAO CITY—President Rodrigo Duterte danced with former wife Elizabeth Zimmerman at her 70th birthday celebration at the Davao Convention Center.

Zimmerman is the mother of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, Paolo Duterte, and Sebastian Duterte. 

The president and Zimmerman's marriage was annulled in 2000.

According to Davao City Information Officer Jefry Tupas, the party was simple but intimate. 

About 200 guests were also invited to the party.

Tupas said Duterte, during his speech, told his former wife: “Given another chance, another life, I would still marry Elizabeth. Because that is love.”

After his speech, Duterte and Zimmerman danced as the crowd cheered, including their children.
