Illa, 20, is the second graduate in the family.
Her Ate Alyssa finished Integrated Marketing Communications at the University of Asia and the Pacific in 2016.
The bunso Ina is currently an Entrepreneurial Management student.
Her mom is very proud, and floods her Instagram feed with photos and a video documenting Illa's graduation at the Philippine International Convention Center.
Since Almira and Bong separated in 2011, they have not been on speaking terms.
The sister of Aga Muhlach went back to acting, and also became a professional makeup artist.
She took charge of her daughter's schooling.
Illa and her sisters, however, have been constantly in touch with their dad.
In fact, Bong shows up at Illa's graduation ceremony.
On Instagram, the former cager writes, "Congratulations to my 2nd daughter Illa. Isa na lang tapos na ang tatlong maria ko. SALAMAT SA DIYOS!!!"
