"So wow, va-va-voom!"
This was how Ina Raymundo described her eldest daughter Erika Poturnak during her interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the special screening of Kuya Wes, which is top-billed by Ogie Alcasid, and the presscon for Spring Films' 10th year celebration, last January 28, 2019.
The 43-year-old star's daughter first appeared on Ina's feed in November 2018.

Ina's latest post about Erika taken in Sydney, Australia, flaunted her daughter's curves in a bikini.
The actress' followers were wowed.
But Ina reminded, "Seventeen lang ang anak at walang problema sa kanya kung magsuot man ito ng bikini.
"Pero hindi pa raw muna ang mag-sexy ito nang todo.
"She’s 17, I guess, I mean, pag nasa tamang edad na siya. Kasi underage pa siya, kung tutuusin bawal pa di ba?"
Ina, who was made famous by the TV commercial "Sabado Nights" in 1995, said her wish has always been to pass on her "Sabado Nights Girl" moniker to her daughter.
She continued, "Pero alam mo, may pangarap nga ako na nakini-kinita ko na when she’s at the right age, parang yung 'Sabado Nights' commercial ko, it’s so nice to pass it on to her.
"Na parang nasa bar kami 'tapos siya yung papasok, 'tapos magmi-meet kami as mom and daughter, may date kami.
"Ayaw kong mag-preempt, pero I’m such a daydreamer. So, that’s one of my daydreams na sa kanya malilipat yung title."

"Meron, e. Meron...Oh, yeah, she sings actually," Ina replied before adding that her eldest actually had the chance to see a copy of her TV commercial.

"Sabi niya, 'I want, I want…'"
Ina shared that, of late, she has been actually seeing herself in Erika.
"Yung attitude niya is exactly like me. Di ba, no'ng lumabas yung 'Sabado Nights,' 'Woman of the 90s' ang tagline nun sa akin?
"Sa nakikita ko sa kanya, siya yung very millennial, she’s such a feminist. As in super na talagang grabe ang pagiging feminist niya."
But will Daddy Brian Poturnak allow his daughter to enter showbiz?
"Wala namang magagawa, pag gusto niya ang isang bagay, gagawin niya," she said.
"But right now, busy siya sa school kasi may IV, yun yung pag magka-college ka, she has to take it."
According to the website of United States' National Service, "Title IV school is an institution that processes U.S. federal student aid..."
