Mariel de Leon was one of the frontrunners in bagging the Miss Universe Philippines title. Unfortunately, Rachel Peters got it.
Despite this, she still went home a winner because not only did she get the Miss Creamsilk and Best in Long Gown, she’ll also be the country’s representative to Miss International.
KAMI found touching photos of Mariel de Leon’s family upon her winning.
Maria Angelica de Leon is the 23-year-old daughter of veteran actor Christopher de Leon and actress Sandy de Leon.
She made her parents proud when she gave it her all and was awarded with the crown and the title.
In this picture, it can be seen that her dad Christopher and mom Sandy were in a tight embrace.
After that they all posed for a complete family picture with all smiles and tears wiped away from their faces.
Sandy also sent out a message of gratitude to all of her daughter’s supporters.
