ABS-CBN actress Cherry Pie Picache is one proud mama now that his son, Antonio Tria, has finished junior high school at Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City.
Antonio or Nio is Cherry Pie's son with former partner Gary Tria. The couple broke up in 2011.
Cherry Pie attended her son's moving up rites on Sunday, March 25.
The proud celebrity mom uploaded a series of photos of his son's graduation on her Instagram account, and revealed that he received two awards: academic silver medal and parangal na Gawad San Juan de Brebeuf sa Katangi-tanging Manlalaro.
The latter was given due to his victory at the International Tennis Federation (ITF) held in Vietnam in 2016.
In one of her Instagram posts, Cherry Pie wrote, "Congratulations my love!! I am a blessed and happiest mama... We are so proud of you!"
In a separate Instagram post, Cherry Pie wrote a heartfelt message:
"Congratulations my son on graduating AJHS!! It was no easy feat and you succeeded through your commitment, passion and hard work.
"You are a blessing my love. Continue on being grateful for your gifts by making full use of them, being a man for others, and loving above all our God who is the source of all these."
The actress also thanked her son's school and teachers.
"A heartfelt gratitude to the Ateneo de Manila University for helping us mold and nourish our son to be the kind of person he is now.
"To all his teachers since prep and everyone, thank you so much."
Cherry Pie ended her message with a short reminder to her son, "Now son, spread your wings and take flight like an eagle remembering all the values, lessons learned and keeping in mind what Fr. Manoling Francisco SJ said, it is not what you have and who you are that will define you, it is the decisions you make every day."
