Kiray Celis has achieved a new milestone: getting her first car.

The 29-year-old actress and content creator took to Instagram to share her latest feat on Saturday, Aug. 26. 

“Dream come true! MY FIRST CAR!!! Thank you, Lord!” she wrote in the caption, which features a short clip of herself on the way to the car shop in Caloocan. 

“Today ko matutupad 'yung isa sa pangarap ko. Excited ako kasi matagal ko tong ginusto kaso syempre inuna natin 'yung kailangan ng family, kailangan ng mga ibang tao,” she said in the video. 

“And sabi ko, ang pinaka-least na pwede kong matulungan is 'yung self ko, but this time, I am spoiling myself. I am rewarding my hard work,” she added.

In a separate post on Sunday, Aug. 27, the actress further expressed how happy she is, especially since she started working at the young age of three.

"Dahil 'Family First' ang motto ko sa buhay, sa isip ko laging sila ang priority. Kahit wag muna ako. Basta makatulong at makapagbigay ako, gagawin ko. Pero this time.. I think eto na yung right time. Para reward ko yung sarili ko sa ilang taong pagtratrabaho ko,' she wrote.

“Regalo ko na po ito sa sarili ko at maipaalala sa sarili ko na basta nagsisikap at nagsisipag ka, kaya lahat! Makukuha lahat! Matutupad lahat! Isa pa lang po ito sa mga pangarap ko sa buhay,” Kiray said, sharing that she named her first car “Primo.” 

Before Kiray bought her own car, the actress went viral for giving her mom P1 million cash for her birthday. “Isang milyong regalo sa birthday ng aking ina.. kulang pa yan sa pagmamahal, pagaalaga at pagaasikaso mo sakin..” she wrote in her Instagram post last April.

Kiray started her showbiz career in sketch comedy series Goin’ Bulilit. She is also part of some of the hit Filipino comedy films such as Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy, The Super Parental Guardians, and Love is Blind, among others.
