MANILA, Philippines – Anne Curtis is putting her showbiz duties on hold to help take care of her mother Carmen, who is recovering from surgery in their home in Melbourne, Australia.
Anne set up her arrival to be a surprise, greeting her mother with flowers and a balloon that read “Get Well Soon” when she opened the door. Anne posted a video of the surprise on Instagram on March 26.

And as you may know, I have a crazy schedule but sometimes simpleng lambing na parinig is it all it takes to book a flight agad agad. @jascurtissmith also flew home so we can help our brother Tom, take care of her whilst recovering at home. Thank you to my Showtime and ABS-CBN Family for understanding. I’ll be back Saturday. Back to being a dutiful daughter muna ako. Love you mama @carmcurtissmith. Good job @jascurtissmith and @thomasjamescs for keeping it a secret. Akala nya food delivery A post shared by Anne Curtis (@annecurtissmith) on Mar 25, 2019 at 6:52pm PDT
“Surprise a success! Mama just recently got out of the hospital after a successful operation whilst in Canada. And as you may know, I have a crazy schedule but sometimes simpleng lambing na parinig (a few subtle hints) is all it takes to book a flight agad agad (right away),” she wrote in the caption.
She thanked Showtime and ABS-CBN for understanding her need to take time off, and said that she will be returning on Saturday, March 30.
“Back to being a dutiful daughter muna ako. Love you mama,” she wrote.
Her sister Jasmine also flew to Melbourne to help their brother James take care of their mother.
Anne shared another post on Instagram, a photo with her mom and siblings.
