Actress and jewelry designer KC Concepcion took to social media to greet her father, actor Gabby Concepcion, who is celebrating his 57th birthday this Friday, November 5.
On Instagram, KC shared her heartwarming message for Gabby, as she posted photos of herself with her dad and sister Samantha.
"Hey, handsome! Happy happy birthday to you papa—the first guy who stole my heart!!! Thank you for always spending time with me/us, for checking up on me and picking up the phone when I call even if it’s 2 a.m.! I value and cherish every second we spend together, every conversation, every bonding moment, every new adventure and every new story you have to tell," she said.
In her post, KC also thanked her father for not only making up for all the lost time, but for making the effort to keep a close bond with her.
"Thank you for respecting me as a grown woman, and as an adult—this is so precious to me. Thank you also for always making me feel like your baby girl," she continued. "I missed you for many years, but I still and forever will love you so, so, so much. Past is past, and what matters the most is TODAY and TOMORROW! I love every second! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Papa!!!"
KC, 36, is Gabby's daughter with his former wife, music veteran Sharon Cuneta. The latter has since been remarried to Sen. Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan, with whom she has three children.
Last April, KC celebrated her birthday with her father and his family in Batangas.
At the time, the actress also expressed her gratitude that she and her father were given the chance to rekindle their relationship.
"Papa. Cool and down to earth, a joker, a guy’s guy, our #GirlDad - so much time lost, but so so much, regained," she said at the time.
"I thank God for our phone calls, deep sea dates, nature explorations, talking til we fall asleep. Truly grateful to the universe for keeping our love alive," she added.
