Local celebrities showered actor John Prats with love as he celebrates his 35th birthday today, February 14.
Among his friends in showbiz who took to social media to greet John were Pokwang, Coco Martin, and best friend Angelica Panganiban.
“Happy birthday my love my baby,” said Pokwang. “Stay blessed and happy forever kasama ang iyong mga mahal sa buhay, napaka buti mong anak, kapatid at kaibigan.”
Meanwhile, their fellow ‘Banana Sundae’ and John’s gal pal Angelica wrote a thoughtful birthday message for her “petty pets,” along, of course, with a special side joke.
“Hindi kita iiwan sa ere, ultimo paa mo, hindi pwedeng nasa ere! Mahal na mahal kita [John Prats] happy birthday my petty pets!”
Coco, with whom he stars on hit primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, said he’s lucky to have a friend in John.
“Maligayang kaarawan para sa napakabuti kong kaibigan!!! Naway pagpalain kapa napakaswerte ko nanaging magkaibigan tayo sobrang buti mong tao at mamahal ka naming lahat mabuhay!!!,” he said.
But the sweetest, most thoughtful message came from his wife and mother of his children, Isabel Oli, who revealed that John actually used to be her “childhood crush”.
“Never in a zillion years did I expect to be this happy being married to my childhood crush!,” she said.
“Thank you, Cuff [John Prats], for continually supporting me (even my weird/silly ways). Thank you for constantly making me laugh with your waley jokes. Thank you for exerting the effort to take care of our little ones on days when you’re supposed to be resting. Sobrang appreciate ko talaga ang mga ginagawa mo. Thank you for making us feel loved and important,” she added, capping off her caption by greeting her husband a “Blessed Birthday and Happy Valentine’s Day”.
