Vina Morales happily announced to her social media followers that her daughter Ceana has graduated from elementary school.
The actress-singer shared the good news on Instagram on Sunday, August 15, saying she could not have been any prouder of her daughter for her latest achievement.
"Happy graduation anak @ceana_ml. I am very proud of you anak, you are entering Junior High now. As your mother, I am the happiest. Wishing you a very bright future. Always thankful to God for giving you in my life. I am the luckiest coz you have such a kind heart. I know that you will have a great future ahead of you. Never stop learning and always give your best. I love you anak," she said.
Ceana finished her elementary studies at Victory Christian International School.
Ceana, 12, is Vina's daughter with her former boyfriend, businessman Cedric Lee.
In an interview with Magandang Buhay last February, Vina opened up about being a single mother to Ceana.
"Proud ako sa sarili ko. Pinagmamalaki ko kasi lumalaki 'yung anak ko nang mabuting bata. Happy ako at thankful ako maski ako lang mag-isa [ang] nagpapalaki sa anak ko," she said.
"Thankful ako kasi napakasimple ng anak ko. Talagang hindi siya mareklamo," she added. "Nararamdaman naman niya na mahal na mahal ko siya at lahat ng ginagawa ko ay para sa kanya. Siguro kuntento na siya."
According to Vina, one of the biggest challenges she faced as a single mom was having to balance her time between her job and her child.
"Siyempre nagtatrabaho din ako that time noong baby pa si Ceana. But then I'm really grateful and thankful sa family ko na kapag may trabaho ako ay may napag-iiwanan naman ako, sa kapatid ko, sa magulang ko. ... Thankful ako sa mga taong tumutulong sa akin kasi hindi ko kayang ma-isa," she said.
