It’s Showtime host Mariel Rodriguez shared how she planned her surprise party for husband Robin Padilla in her latest vlog.
Robin will turn 50 this November but Mariel decided to throw a party for him on her birthday, August 10 since she will be flying to the United States to give birth to their second child.
"I'm so excited because today is my birthday! Usually kapag birthdays natin it's always about ourselves... But today is extra special because today, the most important person to me turns 50. That's why we are throwing him a surprise party," she said.
Mariel also said that it was difficult to keep secrets from Robin.
“This is probably the hardest secret that I ever had to keep... Pero the whole time naman, ang feeling niya talaga birthday ko. Pero there were so many instances na parang may nadudulas o kaya magtataka siya."
Robin, who was delighted with the surprise birthday bash said, "Maraming salamat, Babe. Totoong ikaw ang preacher of love. I love you.”
The star-studded party was attended by celebrities Pokwang, Jodi Sta. Maria, Gretchen Barretto, Karylle, Rufa Mae Quinto, Ruffa Gutierrez, Bianca Gonzalez, Karla Estrada, Bayani Agbayani, Vhong Navarro, and Iza Calzado to name a few.
President Rodrigo Duterte was also seen at the party.
