Proud mother also a Supermodel

In a phone interview aired on 24 Oras Sunday, Danica’s mother Milagros ‘Lala’ Flores – who was named Ford Supermodel of the World-Philippines 1980 – related how she got the good news.

“She [Danica] called me up 5 a.m. this morning,” Lala gushed. “And she says, ‘Mommy, I have an award. So I’m, like, ‘What award?’ And she’s, like, ‘I’m the winner!’”

Lala said that her daughter’s victory probably has not sunk in yet, adding: “She said lang to me, ‘Mommy, I’m just excited [with] what I do everyday.’”
