Loving and family-oriented, Alyana (Yassi Pressman) would do everything to cradle and nurture a kid of her own. So, when a series of political destabilization resulted in her young son’s death, the loss and grief broke her short-lived dream into pieces. Alyana spent days and nights imploring for a new beginning, a second chance at becoming a mother. And after waiting patiently, she finally reaped the fruit of her unwavering faith when the heavens sent Letlet (Iyannah Sumalpong) and put her longing to an end. Let us celebrate Alyana’s beautiful motherhood journey in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano through this Kapamilya Toplist.
The Baranggay Bagong Pag-Asa was instantly delighted at Letlet’s charm when she moved in with her biological mother. Letlet was a happy kid blessed with sharp wit, impressive home management skills, and a friendly smile that could brighten up the day. Yet, behind her sunny disposition was a dark secret that led to her family’s death. Cardo (Coco Martin) and Alyana were moved with sympathy while watching the orphan go through the pain all by her own until they looked at Letlet as a blessing in disguise, the unexpected answer to their prayers; enough to convince them to raise her as their own.
Our hearts burst in warmth upon hearing Letlet called Alyana as Nanay for the first time. It was a moment filled with life-changing significance for Alyana as she gazed at her own miracle, the rainbow after her storm. She smiled at Letlet’s promise to fill in the gap that Rickyboy left and to always make her happy.
Alyana had a ‘fresh’ start at motherhood when her little family went on a swimming vacation with friends as a welcome party for Letlet. But, first, the domesticated mom introduced little Letlet to household chores by turning them into fun and entertaining activities. There were a lot of dancing, singing, and giggling as they worked altogether at home all the while acting silly.
“Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na buo ang pamilya. Parang anghel na hulog ng langit si Letlet,” Alyana sighed in content after that tiring swimming party. The hands-on mom even thought of leaving her post at the Baranggay Office to prioritize Letlet but Cardo found it a bad idea. Alyana was then forced to balance her time with work and family. And while the days are exhausting, she wouldn’t complain. Thanks also to Lola Flora (Susan Roces) and their relatives who babysit when needed.
It’s hard not to admire Alyana’s passion for motherhood every time she addresses Letlet as “anak” or “baby ko” while bathing or feeding her little daughter. More importantly, she puts God at the center of her family and her motherhood journey. Alyana always puts emphasis on the importance of prayer even in the mundane moments like before eating or going to sleep.
Alyana is a great reminder of how hope makes things possible and that life is kind enough to give us our hearts’ deepest desires no matter how scary the past might have been. Watch out for more mother-daughter moments of Alyana and Letlet in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
