Bettina Carlos treated her family to an out-of-town trip just in time for her daughter Gummy's sixth birthday.
The birthday girl celebrated her special day under the Boracay sun last March 7, 2017.
They stayed on the island for three days.
Everyone was generally happy save for one moment when Bettina became an "emo mama."
On Instagram, the actress/host related how Gummy made her cry.
"I was at the buffet table and she came up from behind.
"As usual I had to pretend I was gulat.
"But it wasnt her intention pala.
"She said OOPS SORRY MUM. Then i said YES?
"She stepped forward and whispered MUM THANK YOU FOR MY BIRTHDAY. I LOVE YOU."
Bettina was so touched, "in 2 seconds my eyes were glassy and in 3 more a teardrop fell from my right eye."
Gummy hurriedly wiped away her mom's tears.
The celebrity mom continued, "She wiped it away as i was saying ANAK THERE IS NOTHING I WILL NOT DO NOR GIVE YOU.
"EVERYTHING THAT WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY I WILL GIVE YOU.
"ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW MUCH MUMMY LOVES YOU.
"I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
"She just kissed me and said YES MUMMY I LOVE YOU TOO."
The 29-year-old TV host added, "IYAK TALAGA AKOOHHHH!!!!! huhuhu
"Grabe how a little soul can penetrate my heart.
"Solo parenting has its ups and downs but no single mom will have it any other way. Swear."
In another post, she put out a thanksgiving prayer.
A part of her caption was, "We have what we have because of You.
"Because You want to give it to us.
"Never because we earned it.
"This is all Your initiative. Out of Your boundless kindness.
"To be able to travel and splurge once a year, to celebrate not just the life of my daughter but the presence and good health of my Mom and Wowa [Gummy's great grandmother] in our lives."
Bettina did not forget thanking Him for giving her another chance at life.
It may be remembered that she had a cancer scare last year.
She wrote, "More importantly it is about remembering the second chance You gave me through her.
"@gummybites7 birthday stands for Your faithfulness to us.
"6 years God. It has only been just YOU.
"So I give it all rightfully back to You.
"Salamat Panginoon for Your mercy. For turning my life around. For making things right.
"Thank you God for Your graciousness and generosity. Thank you Lord!!!!"
At present, Bettina and her family are back in Manila.
Happy Birthday, Gummy!
