Thirdy Lacson is all grown up.
Proud mom Jodi Sta. Maria took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 with a short clip of her teenage son lifting weights.
The video showed off Thirdy's toned physique.
The little boy whom fans had come to know through Jodi's social media posts now appeared to them as a young man.
This wasn't the first time Jodi showed Thirdy in a different light.
Last year, Thirdy decided to get a modern haircut.
He wanted to sport messy curls, a departure from his usual clean-cut hairstyle.
Jodi posted a photo of her son in the barbershop and captioned: "Time flies so fast. Parang kailan lang karga karga kita, ngayon halos mag-kasing laki na tayo at ikaw na ang namimili ng damit na susuotin mo at hairstyle na gusto mo.
"Pero kahit ano pang mangyari at ilang taon pa ang lumipas. Ikaw pa rin ang baby boy ko."
THIRDY BECOMING HIS OWN PERSON
Early this month, Jodi talked a bit about her current parenting style with son Thirdy.
The ABS-CBN actress acknowledged that her son with former husband Pampi Lacson is now becoming "his own person" and is building an identity "separate from the mother."
With this in mind, Jodi had been balancing being both mother and friend to Thirdy.
She said, "Naniniwala ako na if you spare the rod, you spoil the child.
"Pero I just make sure na always come from a place of love and concern, so we do a lot of talking after ng pagdidisiplina.
"But I make sure din na I'm 'fun to be with' naman, para naman hindi niya isipin na kapag nakikita niya si mommy puro discipline o 'don't do this, don't do that,' ganyan.
"Kailangan makita niya ako na friend niya, but, at the same time, mommy pa rin niya."
Thirdy is turning 15 this December 23.
