Actress and vlogger Ivana Alawi got super emotional during her Magandang Buhay guesting as she talked about her late father. "I grew up without him. Noong lumipat na kami sa Philippines, nagkanya-kanya na."
When she went back to ABS-CBN, Ivana shared that her Moroccan father used to watch her episodes in Ang Probinsyano and would even text her messages like: "I'm so proud of you." There was no bad blood between them and they would see each other from time to time.
One day, her dad asked her to visit him in a hospital in Subic. "Nag-picture kami, tapos after five minutes namatay [siya]."
After her father passed, Ivana found out that he left her all of his properties. "Akala ko kasi he forgot about us," Ivana said, her voice breaking. "Pero ang dami niyang iniwan na properties...Nakita ko sa paper, lahat nasa name ko. And then parang he said, 'Ikaw na ang bahala sa mga kapatid mo.' Kasi he knows mahal ko silang lahat."
In February 2020, during her guesting for the show Gandang Gabi Vice, Ivana shared that her father left her an inheritance. She also posted a vlog featuring her family's seven-bedroom mansion in Bahrain. Ivana has three siblings, including 15-year-old actress Mona Alawi (known by her stage name Mona Louise Rey).
