Dingdong Dantes honors mom, wife Marian Rivera, God on his birthday

Dingdong Dantes celebrated his 40th birthday on Sunday, August 2.

In an Instagram post, the actor revealed that he wanted to throw an “Oktober-fest themed, ‘90s rock, all-out party” for his birthday this year. However, that did not materialize because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Today I turn forty. It isn’t a day I imagined five months ago - definitely far from the supposed Oktoberfest-themed, 90’s rock, all-out party. That was the plan. But events may have not turned out the way I envisioned them to be, I’m still grateful because this day is a reminder of His blessings and my life’s greatest gifts. Today, I honor my mother who brought me into this world. I had to have my own children to make me realize the sacrifices that our mothers do for us. She literally put her life on the line for me. So whenever I get a birthday greeting, I also celebrate her strength, love and commitment in raising a kulit boy like me. Today, I also honor my wife who has been my rock and core. Building a family of my own and reaching milestones have been a blissful and contented journey because I have her as my partner in and for life. So whenever you greet me, I too laud her dedication, care and love for me and our children - who have brought so much meaning to our marriage and our lives. And of course, today, I honor our Creator, who has made all things possible and surmountable for me all throughout these years. So, I welcome and embrace your well-wishes so that I can continue glorifying Him. Muli, maraming salamat sa mga pagbati. Open a bottle of beer for me and distantly, I’ld like to thank you for being part of my ongoing life’s journey. Prost! ūüćĽ #AgostoDos

“But events may have not turned out the way I envisioned them to be, I’m still grateful because this day is a reminder of His blessings and my life’s greatest gifts,” he added.

Instead, Dingdong marked his special day by honoring his mother, his wife Marian Rivera, and God. 

“Today, I honor my mother who brought me into this world. I had to have my own children to make me realize the sacrifices that our mothers do for us. She literally put her life on the line for me. So whenever I get a birthday greeting, I also celebrate her strength, love and commitment in raising a kulit boy like me,” he wrote. 

“Today, I also honor my wife who has been my rock and core.

“And of course, today, I honor our Creator, who has made all things possible and surmountable for me all throughout these years,” he went on. “So, I welcome and embrace your well-wishes so that I can continue glorifying Him.” 

Dingdong ended his post by thanking all those who remembered to greet him on his birthday.

“Open a bottle of beer for me and distantly, I’d like to thank you for being part of my ongoing life’s journey,” he said.
