Like any proud father, Vhong celebrated a major milestone in his son Fredriek’s life. He posted on Instagram a graduation photo of Fredriek and shared how thrilled he is that he graduated college.

The “It’s Showtime” host wrote, “Yahoo!!! Pinakamagandang regalo na natanggap ko!!! Maraming salamat sayo Kuya. Nakaka proud ka.”

He also told him: “I love you so much!”

Frederick is graduating from the University of Santo Tomas with degree in Information Technology. He is one of Vhong’s two sons. Vhong had Fredrick with his previous relationship with a non-showbiz partner. His other son, Isaiah or Yce is with former actress Bianca Lapus.

Back in 2017, Vhong turned emotional while on “Magandang Buhay” as he talked about his relationship with his sons. He admitted he was a “late bloomer” when it came to fatherhood; recalling how he was absent in his sons’ lives for some time. Explaining his absence, he said he was caught up with his career that he wasn’t there when his sons were growing up.

He said, “Kasi that time, masyado kong inuna ang trabaho at weekend ko lang sila nakikita that time. Gusto kong may patunayan sa kanila kasi breadwinner ako, marami akong tinutulungan sa pamilya ko. Gusto ko maging proud sila sa akin.”

Vhong apologized to his sons for his mistakes and told them, “Gusto kong humingi ng pasensya sa inyo kung naging late bloomer akong tatay. Kumbaga, gusto kong bumawi at ipakita sa inyo na ‘yung time na gusto ko kayong makasama, nagtatrabaho rin si Daddy at lahat ‘yon ay para sa inyo.”
