Its a perfect choice that @sanya_lopez picked as First Yaya turned First Lady. I don’t see any actress could fit into. Well portray.

First Lady is the sequel to First Yaya. GMA then seemed to be teasing about another part, so netizens are now guessing the title of Book 3.
Our 97th episode and our last… for now.
