Janice and Gelli de Belen’s children bring them pride on graduation
Graduation season is a source of pride to parents who work hard and dedicate themselves to the mission of supporting their children through school.
These include celebrity parents like Janice de Belen and John Estrada who took to social media to celebrate daughter Kaila’s college graduation:
“So proud of my baby,” said John, who also calls Kaila “daddy’s girl.”
Mommy Janice made sure to capture a shot of Kaila during the ceremony and called her “my graduate”:
Kaila, 21 years old, graduated from De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde with a degree in Arts Management. She has been modeling since she was 17.
John and Janice had their marriage annulled in 2014, but remain doting parents to their four children together.
Kaila’s cousin, Joaquin Rivera, made her mom (and Janice’s sister) Gelli de Belen proud as well when he finished high school in Canada.
Joaquin is Gelli’s first son with her husband, singer-songwriter Ariel Rivera. Although they initially planned to migrate as a family, the couple decided to stay in the Philippines while their sons live with Ariel’s family in Canada, where they pursue their education. JB
