Pia Wurtzbach’s niece Lara Manze is a little star just waiting to happen.
The adorable two-year-old constantly copies her beauty queen aunt on social media, and has already made her TV debut on “Little Big Shots” last week. Despite being proud of her niece, Pia maintained that she wants Lara to have a normal life first.
“Two years old pa lang si Lara, so ‘yung mom naman niya gusto muna mag-focus ‘yung bata sa pagiging bata,” she said on a press interview last October 10, but added that she will always support the dreams of her niece.
“Siguro paglaki ni Lara kung gusto niya talagang mag-beauty queen or mag-artista, go lang,” she said.
Pia also shared how Lara has become “obsessed” with herself after her “Little Big Shots” appearance, prompting them even more to shelter her from showbiz.
“Lagi niyang pinapanood sa Youtube… ‘yung guesting niya,” Pia related. “So sabi namin, ‘Teka muna mali na yata ‘to, kunin natin ‘yung phone sa kanya.’”
Pia stars in the upcoming superhero comedy film “Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad” alongside Vice Ganda and Daniel Padilla. It opens in cinemas on Christmas Day as an official entry to the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival.
