When the youngest daughter of Francis Pangilinan and Sharon Cuneta marked Pride month this year by coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community, the Megastar and her husband were all out in supporting Miel’s decision to be more open about her sexuality. This month, Sharon shares again just how proud she is of Miel, who is the cover model for NYLON Manila’s anniversary issue.

On her Instagram account last November 24, Sharon shared why she is so proud of her 18-year-old daughter. She wrote, “My Miel is incredibly confident. She has no body image issues and from our talks I sense that she wants to encourage girls and women to be proud of themselves no matter what the world demands that they do, say, or look like.


“I am also glad that her generation now looks down on body shaming (whether people are too thin or too curvy) and thinks of it as being so out and so low.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I am extremely proud of her and all that she stands for! ❤️ 🙌🏻

“Also, not just because I’m her Mama, but I think she is GORGEOUS & BEEYOOTEEFUULL!!!🥰❤️ What a FACE, this girl. Yes we look alike—but I really believe she has a better version of my face!🤗🥰 Thank you, @nylonmanila for featuring my baby on your cover—her first, alone—without us, her ever-present support (or maybe even slightly annoying, ‘stuck-to-each-other’😊) group! I love you so much my Mielly!!!❤️❤️❤️ Congratulations again!🙏🏻💖😘🤗”

On her own Instagram account, Miel thanked the publication for being chosen to grace their cover. She wrote, “baby’s first magazine cover shoot 🤞🏼

“thank you nylon for this wonderful opportunity.

In a previous post, Sharon shared what her family thinks of Miel going public last June.

“She will certainly be treated no different by us her family and those who truly love her. I will love her just the same, if not more. Like I said, all my children are PERFECT. I may be a Mom with traditional values, but that doesn't mean that my mind is too tiny to accept people for what they are—what more my own child? 

“What matters in a person is their goodness. Sincerity, pureness of heart. Faith in God. In Miel, I have all those. I am proud of my girl and always will be. Needless to say, she will always have my support and love. No big deal. I love you, my Yellie.

“With all of my heart, and more than life itself. Be strong! It's your life, no one else's. Don't give any negative commenters any attention. They don't matter. We do. And we've got your back. Forever and ever. @mielpangilinan”
