Amy Perez, or Tyang Amy, could not help but feel emotional during It's Showtime's latest episode.
During the show's 'Tawag ng Tanghalan' segment, Vice Ganda could not help but ask Amy about what it feels like to let go of a child.
"Kasi diba tayong mga bagets, parang alam na natin yung feeling, merong point na excited na tayo talagang bumukod.
"Excited tayong umalis ng bahay, na tayo lang muna, di na muna natin sila kasama. May ganung point sa atin na feeling natin mature tayo," he began.
"Kung yun yung feeling nating mga anak, ano ang feeling ng nanay o ng magulang, kung isang araw darating.
"Sasabihin ng anak mo na, 'Nay, bubukod na ako. Di na ako uuwi dito sa bahay mo'. Anong feeling ng nanay?" Vice asked.
The question, however, has immediately made Amy tear up, "Grabe yan, tinatanong mo pa lang naiiyak na ako, nanginginig na yung boses ko."
According to Amy, when her eldest son, Adi decided to start living independently, it shocked her at the beginning.
"Nung una talaga, nagulat ako. Kasi parang syempre, as a mother, gusto mo na you can keep all your children na kasama mo sila.
"Parang ang layo pa dun sa pag-iisip mo na darating yung araw na magso-solo sila. Never ko yun na-imagine."
However, despite feeling shocked and sad about it, Amy understood why it is important for parents to let go of their children.
"Dun mo na slowly nararamdaman na, oops, teka, ito na yung realization na hindi talaga forever makakasama mo ang mga anak mo because at one point.
"Ma-realize mo na parang saranggola sila na kailangan mong i-let go at makita mo lang na lumilipad sila, bilang magulang, masaya ka na."
