There are so many things we still don't know about actress and YouTuber Ivana Alawi, and we got to know her a ~little~ better during her recent guesting on Gandang Gabi Vice.

Ivana, who is half-Filipino and half-Moroccan, confirmed that her father left her an *inheritance* after he passed away. Vice Ganda joked, "Balita ko ang yaman yaman mo raw pala. Pinamana raw sayo ang Morocco."

Laughing, Ivana shared, "Okay lang. Kasi, ano 'yon e...sa Daddy ko. Kaya hindi ko siya kino-consider na akin, kasi hindi ko naman siya pinaghirapan. Para sa family 'yon e."

"Pero heiress ka, 'di ba? Tagapagmana." Vice insisted, to which Ivana replied, "Actually. Kasi apat kami na magkakapatid pero sa akin niya pinangalan lahat."

One of Ivana's siblings, 15-year-old Mona Alawi (known by her stage name Mona Louise Rey), is an actress signed under GMA-7.

During her interview, Ivana also talked about an ex-boyfriend who cheated on her multiple times, saying: "Hindi lang two times, three times, four times siguro. Ang dami kasing mga babae na nagsulputan na. Ang dami pala namin. Pero ako raw ang pinakamahal niya. 'Yon daw ang importante. Sakit talaga."

She added that her ultimate crush is actor Coco Martin, whom she got to work with during her stint on Ang Probinsyano.

Ivana is set to star in a "sexy drama" called Ang Lihim Ni Ligaya, her first lead role in a teleserye, where she'll be paired with Kit Thompson.
