It's safe to say that Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza a.k.a. Yaya Dub, collectively known as ALDUB, have taken over the nation.
But it's not only tweens and teens that are hooked on the history-making, pabebe-waving, dubsmash-splitscreen love team; parents make up a huge section of the Aldub fandom as well!
Of the 55,000 people who trooped to their recent sold-out concert at the Philippine arena, many of them were moms and dads.
Here are eight reasons why parents are not immune to the ALDUB bug!
1. They show kids that patience is a virtue.
The saying "Sa tamang panahon", which gained popularity as one of Lola Nidora's nuggets of wisdom teaches kids to wait for the right time and have patience when it comes to love and fulfilling their dreams.
2. They listen to their elders.
The relationship between Yaya Dub and Lola Nidora teaches kids to value, respect, and care for their elders.
Alden obeying Lola's advice about proper courtship and being a gentleman is also a good example for teens.
3. They teach kids to be real.
Yaya Dub's candid and funny antics teaches kids that it's okay to embrace your wacky self.
She is also excellent at dancing (and dubsmashing) like nobody's watching!
4. They value family.
Both Alden and Maine a.k.a. Yaya Dub remain close to their families.
Before their mega hit concert at the Philippine arena, Maine's sister and Alden's dad took to twitter.
