Karel Marquez takes to Instagram to thank her mom, stage and TV actress Pinky Marquez, for being a constant presence in her life.
"I appreciate my mom... She's with me in times of celebrating, happiness and wonderful photo memories..." the former MYX VJ writes in her caption.
"But she's WITH me in MORE important days like in times of need, even with small things like when she visits our home, she makes sure I AM OKAY, helps me with anything from home stuff to Kobe, and do all the 'not so Instagram worthy' things (dirty work lol!)."
Now that she is also a mother, Karel appreciates how Pinky still continues to take care of her, even though she doesn't need to.
And Pinky extends this love and affection to her grandchildren Keiley, Kyler, and Kobe.
Karel continues, "Like now, my mom is here at home not to just visit for a bit, or try to carry Kobe for entertainment. She didn't need to take photos since Kobe and I's comfort's more important, and that hit my heart in a good way today... I didn't ask her to do anything. It's heartfelt love...
"Thank you for today. I'll make sure Kobe has this too - Empathy. Kindness. A good heart. Just like Keiley and Kyler. [red heart] ILY, @pinkmarquee!"
Karel gave birth to her third child Kobe on June 19.
Kobe is her son with husband Sean Fariñas.
Keiley and Kyler are Karel's kids with her former partner Armand de Guzman.
