After more than 20 years of hard work, Kiray Celis finally fulfilled her dream of buying her first car! She took to social media to express her joy for being able to reward herself for all her hardships to provide for her family.
“Dahil ‘Family First’ ang motto ko sa buhay, sa isip ko laging sila ang priority. Kahit wag muna ako. Basta makatulong at makapagbigay ako, gagawin ko. Pero this time, I think eto na yung right time. Para reward ko yung sarili ko sa ilang taong pagtratrabaho ko. At the age of 3 years old, nagstart ako maging artista. At ngayon po ay 29 years old na ko na may height na 9 years old. Chos,” she wrote.
The actress and comedianne said this is her gift to herself, which serves as a reminder that everything is possible as long as she’s working hard to achieve her goals.
“Isa palang po ito sa mga pangarap ko sa buhay. Nagsisimula palang ako kaya gusto ko kayong pasalamatan lahat. Mapa heart sa status ko o bash sa mga post ko, lahat yun counted. WALA TO KUNG HINDI DAHIL SAINYO,” [sic] she added.
The “Goin’ Bulilit” alumna also uploaded a video of herself with her non-showbiz boyfriend Stephan Estopia and sibling Jhopay Celis picking up her brand new car, which she named Primo, an Italian word for “first.”
She also expressed gratitude for her supporters, “Gusto ko lang magpasalamat sa lahat ng mga taong nagmamahal sa akin, nagsusuporta sakin. And kahit na yung mga tao na nangbabash, wala po ang lahat ng ito kundi dahil sainyo.”
The 29-year-old became emotional as she officially got her car. “Thank you, Lord,” she said.
Kiray has been generous to her family. She surprised her mother with a whooping one million cash on her birthday in April, then Jhopay a Blackpink concert ticket in 2022.
