Bye money cake, Kiray Celis has opted to give her mom cold hard cash as a birthday gift!
Comedienne Kiray Celis has truly upped the game in gift-giving after handing over a whopping P1 million cash to her mom Miriam.
The Kapuso actress’ shared her mom’s reaction through a video posted on her official Facebook page last April 10, 2023. The said video has amassed 5.4 million views and has also raked in almost 350,000 reactions and 8,100 comments as of this writing.
Kiray Celis as a breadwinner
The “Goin’ Bulilit” alum said the money will be used for the construction of their new house that will be up for rent.
“Pinag-ipunan ko ito kasi ito ‘yung gusto kong ibigay sa kanya, kasi ipapagawa niya ‘yung bago naming bahay. Meron akong biniling lote sa kanya nung nakaraan tapos ito na ‘yung pampagawa ng bagong bahay,” Celis says.
“Ito na yung ipinangako ko sa ‘yo—isang milyon para sa ‘yo, mama,” she then tells her mom.
Celis places the money inside a motorcycle helmet to prank her mom into thinking that it was her birthday gift. Both the mother and daughter turn emotional as the former thanks the actress-comedian for being their breadwinner and for being a “big help” to their family.
In the comments section of her post, Celis notes that she hopes to inspire other breadwinners like her to continue pushing through.
“Sana maging inspirasyon ako sa mga kagaya kong anak na kapag napagod… magpahinga lang tapos tuloy ulit! Para maibigay lahat at makatulong sa pamilya natin,” she says.
While many laud her grand gesture through the post’s comments section, Celis reiterates that what matters most is the intention that goes with it.
“Maliit man o malaki, basta galing sa puso ang tulong mo… naappreciate yan ng mga magulang niyo. Mabuhay lahat ng bread winner na anak sa mundo!” Celis ends.
Celis has been consistently giving generous gifts not only to her mother but also to her father on their birthdays.
In 2022, Celis gave her father P63,000, and her mom with P57,000, a newly built three-story house as well as gold jewelry, among others. She’s also generous to her siblings and her nieces as she constantly spoils them with various gifts on different occasion.
