Former beauty queen Ruffa Gutierrez is a proud mother of two lovely daughters Lorin and Venice, who already signed their own management contract with Cornerstone Entertainment Inc.
Many people can’t help but notice that her eldest daughter Lorin, who is only 16 years old has already has the making of a beauty queen as she is growing up to be a tall and leggy teen just like her mom.
The beautiful teen daughter of Ruffa has been taking the Internet by storm with her hot beach photos, with many saying that she really has what it takes to become a beauty queen. No need to worry as she got the permission of her celebrity mom to be more visible on social media.
Many were also curious if she will be allowed to follow in her mother’s footsteps as a beauty queen?
During Ruffa’s recent launch as the endorser of a beauty clinic, the celebrity mom of two said that while she agrees with Lorin’s followers, she is still young to join as there’s already an age requirement to join. Aside from that, majority of the contestants today are much older as compared to before.
“Marami nagsasabi for Lorin most especially to join Bb. Pilipinas, but she is only 16. You have to be 18 to join for Miss Universe. And times have changed. Binibinis now are much older, kasi back when I joined, 17-18 yung mga kasama ko,”
“Ako, 15 pa lang, kinukulit na ako ni Ms Stella,”
referring to the chairperson of Binibining Pilipinas Chariries Inc., Stella Marquez de Araneta.
Ruffa, who finished 2nd runner-up in the 1993 Miss World pageant went on,
“Now, they want more mature candidates. It’s a trend na they are all in their 20s, late 20s.”
The proud mom shared that Lorin apparently has already undergone a few preliminary workshops with the pageant gurus from beauty camp Aces and Queens.
“She did lessons for one week with Jonas [Gaffud]. That’s it as of now. Ayaw ko siya i-pressure. Sometimes kasi may hilig siya, sometimes ayaw niya. Same as me, sabi ko noon, ‘No, next year na lang,’ ‘tapos ganoon ulit the next year. And then suddenly, I said, ‘Okay,’ bigla ako sumali ng pageant.”
Ruffa shared that Lorin is showing more interest in her drama club endeavors at school and tried to stay away from joining pageants.
Just like any moms out there, she will not stop her daughters from joining pageants in the future, but now she wants them to enjoy living their lives at their own pace. She said,
“I want Lorin to enjoy her youth, she has one more year of high school left.”
