Presidential daughter Veronica “Kitty” Duterte flaunted her mother Honeylet Avancena’s old photo in a social media challenge called “Show Me Your Beautiful Mom.”

Kitty posted photos of a young Honeylet, whose real name is Cielito, in a white bikini onstage. According to the online news site Balita.net.ph, Kitty first posted this photo on her Facebook account in 2019.

This photo was taken when Honeylet was still single. Apart from being a nurse and businesswoman, Honeylet also frequently competed in beauty pageants.

In 1988, she bagged the “Miss Davao Doctors College” crown, and also won first runner-up in the Mutya ng Dabaw contest.

Honeylet, President Rodrigo Duterte’s common-law wife, stands as the country’s First Lady. They have been in a relationship since 1996. She joined her partner's presidential campaign in Luzon during the 2016 elections.

She would occasionally speak to the media, dressed casually in a shirt and jeans, but she would never give a speech on stage to support her husband's candidacy. When she was in a motorcade, she only threw out campaign shirts and Duterte-Cayetano ballers.

She also served as hostess for the president on several state occasions.
