It’s not easy being a young mother. Apart from the enormous responsibilities that come with it, many young moms face criticism from their very own families and even from strangers. However, actress Valerie Concepcion persisted through the hardships and is now the proud mother to her teen daughter, Heather Fiona.
The actress was at the top of her acting career in 2006 when she revealed that she was with child. Unlike other celebrities, Valarie did not hide her pregnancy from the public. At the early age of 16, she carried her firstborn from her non-showbiz boyfriend Jeremy Galang.
However, Fiona’s dad ran away from the responsibility of being a father and since then Valerie raised her daughter on her own. Just recently, Valerie Concepcion proudly shared her graduation photos on social media. She completed her psychology degree at Arellano University.
Like her mother, Fiona also celebrated a milestone in her life now entering high school at an all-girls school in Quezon City. She refers to her mom as her concert, travel, eating, and shopping buddy as well as her best friend.
In 2014, Valerie admitted to the public that her daughter does not want anything to do with her biological father. She added that ever since she got pregnant with Fiona, she never had contact with Jeremy.
Luckily, Valerie has obviously moved on from her previous relationships. She’s now happily committed to her Guam-based boyfriend, Francis Sunga. Fiona looks as if she doesn’t have any problem with having Francis as her father figure. She even enjoys his company and now has a sisterly bond with his daughter.
