Look! These Famous Personalities Were All Smiles At Their Loved Ones' Graduation

One can argue that celebrity families might have different priorities, but there's one thing that tops their list, just as it does everyone else's—getting a quality education!

For these celeb moms and dads, titas and titos, big and little brothers and sisters and everyone in between, nothing comes close to the feeling of witnessing their child, pamangkin, or ate or kuya going up on stage to receive a diploma they worked tirelessly to earn.

With graduation season well on its way, check out these families who attended graduations of loved ones, and be inspired to invest in quality education, too.

Enzo Samson

"Even before the graduation program started, I was already crying in my seat," wrote Rissa Mananquil-Trillo about attending her firstborn's college graduation. Even though it was a long time coming (and that it was a happy occasion!), this entrepreneurial mommy still found herself in a river of tears for more than one reason: Enzo's graduation, and the fact that the whole family including his half-sisters and stepdad Paolo Mananquil were there for him every step of the way.

Possibly the most emotional day of my life to date!?? Even before the graduation program started, I was already crying in my seat. It’s so different from giving birth. Maybe it’s because mothers don’t just give—they also give up so much for so many years in this journey. . Thank you @paolotrillo for being the best partner in raising Enzo.?? I know Enzo wouldn’t be who he is today without you. His graduation was such a special day for our family! I wanted to bawl even when it finished! So please excuse in the last photo my forehead veins from holding back all the tears.?? . We love you and are so proud of you, #mychefenzo!??????

Jimuel Pacquiao 

More than his boxing titles and the luxurious trips he goes on with his wife Jinkee, Manny Pacquiao's main source of pride and happiness have always been his children. They're the reason why he's worked as hard as he has as an athlete, and with his children proving that it's all been worth it with their diplomas, he's happier than ever.
