Dimples Romana couldn't be prouder of her eldest child Christiana Amanda, or Callie, after she achieved her dream of becoming a licensed commercial pilot.

The actress shared the good news on her Instagram account with a series of pictures showing Callie, who is in Australia for her aviation studies, decked in her pilot uniform and posing in front of a trainer aircraft together with her fellow aspiring pilots.

"So our child number one finally completed her flying licenses yesterday, all the way from the land down under," Dimples quipped.

"Finally, a licensed commercial pilot! Didn’t you just turn 20 years old, two months ago, Amanda!?!? You are a rockstar, captain Callie Ahmee. You’re making dad and I look so darn good!

Dimples went on to say that she and her husband, Boyet Ahmee, are "proud and humbled" by her achievement and that she couldn't help but become emotional over the news.

"I have not stopped crying buckets from thinking about all the struggles and sacrifices you have had to overcome to achieve your ultimate dream, ate," she highlighted.

She continued, "May your beautiful story of dreaming big, staying true to yourself, leaving the comforts of home, living alone, creating a path of your own with a heart determined to soar high inspire many other young people."

The local star hopes that Callie would especially inspire young women like herself "to never be afraid to march to the beat of their own drum and fly confidently like [she does]."

Callie's achievement comes nearly two years after she had her first solo flight as a student pilot. At that time, Dimples expressed her appreciation for children who value their dreams and are not afraid to step out of their comfort zone to go for them. 

"Thank God for children who value family, hard work, dreams and taking lots and lots of leaps of faith! Sometimes I wonder what dad and I ever do right to deserve such a gem like you my Ate Callie," she wrote.

Callie first flew to Australia in March to pursue being a pilot, which has long been one of her biggest dreams.
