Minutes before her birthday came to an end, The Hows of Us actress took to Instagram to share a special video she did with celebrity photographer Shaira Luna. Written in her caption were musings on wanting to define womanhood in her own terms now that she has turned another year older.

“Ready to turn over a new leaf! Thank you @shairaluna for capturing this moment a few days before I officially turned a year older (and wiser, I hope),” she said.

“So many people have so many expectations about what it really means to enter womanhood, specifically about how one should dress, talk, or behave in general. I don't know about any of these things, but I do know I want to define womanhood on my own terms. For me, it means being able to move at my own pace, feeling more comfortable in my own skin, embracing my flaws, and not having to explain to anyone why I am what I am,” she added.

 

In a separate post, Kathryn returned the love and gratitude to those who didn’t forget to wish her a happy birthday this year. “It's time to open a new chapter in my life. Wishing for a year that's all about taking care of the people I love, balancing work and play, and relishing every moment as it happens.”

“My heart is full reading all your birthday greetings! Thanks to everyone who remembered,” she exclaimed.

 

As previously revealed by her mommy Min, Kathryn celebrated her birthday with a simple ‘salubong’ while surrounded by her family and beau Daniel Padilla at the Bernardo residence on Tuesday midnight.
