Why a Sleepy Scarlet Snow Belo Still Walked the ABS-CBN Ball Red Carpet With Mom VickiThe four-year-old was the youngest guest to walk the red carpet!by Kitty Elicay .
This year’s ABS-CBN Ball was a chance for Kapamilya stars and distinguished guests to glam up for the benefit of Bantay Bata Foundation and pay tribute to its founder, the late Gina Lopez. As expected, all came dressed to the nines in their beautiful interpretations of the Filipiniana theme and confidently walked the red carpet, whether solo, with their love teams (in reel and real life), or as a family.
While everyone’s eyes were on the stars during the red-carpet event, one family managed to steal the show when they arrived: Drs. Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho who walked hand in hand with their daughter, Scarlet Snow. The mother-daughter pair had their twinning moment on the red carpet, wearing gorgeous ternos by designer Paul Cabral.
It was Scarlet’s first time to walk the ABS-CBN ball red carpet, but she was also present at last year’s ball, helping the celebrities get ready behind the scenes in the Belo Beauty Suite. This year, she helped mom out again and insisted that she walk the red carpet with Vicki, even if it was way past the 4-year-old’s bedtime.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Her dad, Hayden, shares the sweet reason behind her decision:ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“Just wanted to share a touching story about @scarletsnowbelo during the #abscbnball2019. Although it was past her bedtime (it was 7PM), she was very excited to go twinning with her mom. However, she was so sleepy that she fell asleep in my arms between the first part of the red carpet and the second,” the dad wrote on Instagram.
“We wanted her to go home but she insisted to go [walk the red carpet]. ‘I need to hold Mommy’s hand because she might get nervous. She won’t feel nervous if I’m here.’”
Aww! Isn’t she adorable? During the live coverage of the red carpet with Raymond Gutierrez, Hayden had to scoop Scarlet in his arms as the preschooler already looked very sleepy. Vicki did mention in the interview that while she and Doc Hayden would be staying for the party (they had a bunch of awards to give out!), Scarlet would be going home soon. But now we know why she fought to stay awake — she wanted to walk with mom and give her a boost of confidence!ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“I thank God for giving us a child with such a compassionate heart,” Hayden wrote. “I hope we do well as parents to keep her this way.”
Mom Vicki and dad Hayden have always been hands-on with Scarlet in terms of disciplining and raising her to be a kind, compassionate, and humble child, so we’re sure she’ll grow up just fine!ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
In the meantime, we hope the two parents also continue sharing snippets of their life as a family. Apart from the valuable lessons, Scarlet is just a joy to see! Here she is with a little more energy before the ball — doing a split with Tita Karylle!
Keep being you, Scarlet!ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
