Although makulit, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano and Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids’ Awra Briguela is a kind person, according to his grandparents Onofre and Loida Briguela who joined Awra’s guest appearance on the morning talk show, Magandang Buhay.

“’Yan nama’y mabait na bata. Siyempre ‘pag bata, medyo may katigasan ng ulo pero ‘yan ay marunong sa buhay,” said lola Loida. 

Meanwhile, lolo Onofre recounted a time when he saw Awra and his siblings’ genuine concern for him. “Ito ‘yung siguro na-ospital ako. Na-operahan ako sa ulo, eh itong mga batang ito, naramdaman ko ‘yung pagiging... Panay ang tanong kung ano raw nangyari sa akin. Eh kako, ‘wag kayo mag-alala, butas lang naman sa ulo ito, eh. Nasa ospital ako no’n eh gustong gusto nilang pumunta. Ito palang mga batang ito, kahit lagi kong pinapagalitan, mahal na mahal naman din pala ako,” his voice broke as he spoke.

“Kaya ‘nung pumasok siya rito (sa showbiz), (sabi ko) o sige, kung ‘yan ang makakapagpaligaya sa’yo, suportahan kita,” lolo Onofre added.

As for Awra, he thanked his grandparents for appreciating the little things he does with his siblings. “Thank you rin po kasi ‘yung pagkakamali namin, naitatama po nila kasi gusto po nilang lumaki kami ng maayos at tama.” 


The child star also got emotional with his father Oneal’s video message.

Saying that they are very proud of him, his father reminded him to be kind, grateful, and generous. 

Awra, failing to contain his emotions, thanked him for always supporting him. “Sorry po minsan parang sobrang kulit ko po pero lahat po ng kakulitan ko, sobrang saya ko rin po kasi nandiyan kayo para itama po at intindihin po ako,” he said.
