On Instagram, Jackielou Blanco posted a video showing how their entire family surprised her mom Pilita Corrales for her 78th birthday.
With several of the veteran actress's children and grandchildren present when the sweet birthday surprise happened, Jackielou said she couldn't believe all of them were able to pull it off as their family rarely succeeds at throwing a surprise for her Mamita without getting caught by her.
"Yes, we managed to surprise my Mom on her birthday which is next to impossible. Lagi kaming nahuhuli. Haha! Well, not this time," Jackielou wrote on Instagram.
Seen smiling all throughout the video, Jackielou thanked everyone who made the birthday surprise possible including her brother Monching along with his kids Diego and Janine.
"Thank you to our loved ones who were there. Thank you to all her friends and loved ones abroad who sent their video greetings," she added.
"You made my Mom so happy. It was indeed a night of great food, songs, and so much love. We love you Mamita," she continued.
