This love of tricolor runs through generations in my friends' families. Jerilyn Corea became a fan because of her father. This Wednesday, she and Jessica took their children to make their first contact with São Paulo.

Jerlene also highlights that meeting Jessica again had a special factor due to the presence of her two children, Victor Gabriel and Icaro Gabriel.
