Ai-Ai delas Alas is brimming with joy after her youngest and only daughter, Sophia Andrea delas Alas, graduated from college.
In an Instagram post last March 6, the "Ang Tanging Ina" star penned a message for her daughter who obtained a degree in Early Childhood Education.
She began, "Nagpapasalamat ako sa POONG MAYKAPAL AT MAMA MARY sa pag-gabay sa akin bilang isang ina na maitaguyod ko ang pag-aaral ng aking anak. Naiiyak ako sa tuwa, actually naiiyak talaga ko, so iiyak na ko hehe."
Ai-Ai said that the happiness she feels is the same kind of joy she felt when she received the Papal Award in 2016.
"Parang nabigyan ulit ako ng Papal Award at international acting award sa nangyaring ito. Sobra-sobrang trophy ito, anak. Bawat magulang ay 'yan ang pangarap, ang mapagtapos ang kanilang mga anak," she wrote.
The comedienne also took the chance to thank Andrea's dad, Miguel, and his wife Priscilla.
"Noong wala pa kaming bahay sa Amerika, doon tumira ang anak ko habang nag-aaral siya ng high school at first year college. Salamat, @priscillasalud. Napakaagang pang-Valentine's at pa birthday ni Lord ito para sa akin. Salamat DLSU sa ilang taong pamamalagi niya sa unibersidad na 'yan," she said.
She then ended her post by saying how proud she is of her daughter.
"I am so proud of you baby girl budangdin, budang kulotski, budaski, Andrea. I love you so dearly anak," she wrote.
Ai-Ai has two other kids, Sancho and Sean. She is now happily married to Gerald Sibayan.
