Actress Kathryn Bernardo marked her 23rd birthday with a simple ‘salubong’ while surrounded by her loved ones on Tuesday midnight, March 26.
Her ever-supportive mother, Min Bernardo, revealed that the family had set up a simple celebration at their home together with Kathryn’s on-screen partner and boyfriend, Daniel Padilla.
In a separate post, Min expressed her utmost appreciation for Kathryn in a touching birthday greeting video. “16 years ago nung nagsimula tayong pumila sa mga audition. Remember anak? Hindi naging madali ang journey. But now, after all the tears and sacrifices, kita mo naman. Everything was worth it,” she said.
“Thank you for being a good daughter sa amin ng papa mo, a loving sister, and a caring tita for Lhexine [Kathryn’s niece]. Palagi mong sinasabi na hindi ka perfect, but I want you to know that your imperfections are not your flaws. They are your beauty. Continue being an inspiration to other people, especially sa mga fans mo na walang sawang sumusuporta sa ‘yo. Mama and Papa will always be proud of you. I love you, bunso. Happy birthday,” she added.
Meanwhile, Daniel’s mom, actress and TV host Karla Estrada has hinted that KathNiel will be celebrating with a well-deserved getaway in a post she shared on Instagram just an hour ago. “Happy Birthday Kath! Enjoy your bday vacation guys! Much love,” she wrote.
