Angelica Panganiban received heartwarming birthday greetings from her good friends, Kim Chiu and Bela Padilla, as she turned 35 on Thursday, November 4.
On her Instagram page, Kim shared a video showing her bonding moments with Angelica as she paid tribute to her "Momsie" on her birthday.
"If there is anything I am thankful for, it is to these two amazing people right here! Found true friends in the middle of a big unpredictable world," wrote Kim.
"But of course, today is a special day to my momsie @iamangelicap. Happy birthday momsy!!! Thank you for all the laughter that we shared at ma-share pa! Laughter sabay iyak sa tawa!!!!!"
The actress went on to thank Angelica for always having her back. She also expressed how happy she is for her friend, who is now in a loving relationship with businessman Gregg Homan.
"Mahal kita sobra! Sobrang happy din ako na nakita mo na ang nagpatibok sa puso ng isang Angelica Panganiban the one and only @gregg_homan, miss ko na ang mga luto nyo ni Greg! Attack ako jan ha? Magugulat ka na lang! Ipunin ko lang English ko for Gregg!!! Hahahaha," she said.
"Happy birthday momsie!!! May all that you prayed for will come true because you truly deserve it. Happy birthday Sexbomb Angge!!!! Miss you and momsy @bela so much!!!" Kim added.
Meanwhile, in her birthday message for Angelica, Bela expressed her admiration for her good friend.
"Momsyyyy!! @iamangelicap I am always amazed by how you manage to achieve things that you didn’t even dream of. Only you could do that. Make the impossible, possible. And I hope that on this special day, you start allowing yourself to dream and ask for more, because you deserve all of it!" she said.
She also thanked the actress for being a great friend to her and Kim, and for guiding the both of them in a notoriously cutthroat industry such as show business.
"Thank you for being the bestest friend to Kimmy and I. You’ve guided us through so many tricky situations in an industry where everyone is left on their own. Thank you momsy. I love you soooo much!!! I can’t wait to see you," she said.
Kim, 31, and Bela, 30, have been good friends of Angelica since 2017.
The three, who call their group "AngBeKi", became close after Kim and Bela "gatecrashed" a birthday party where Angelica was also invited.
“Gatecrasher kami ni Bela. Galing kami sa isang birthday tapos ayaw pa naming umuwi. Pumunta kami doon sa birthday ni direk Andoy Ranay na nandoon si Angelica. Ang saya saya. Nagtawanan na lang kami hanggang sa lagi na lang kami lumalabas,” said Kim in a previous interview with ABS-CBN News.
When asked what they all have in common, the actress said: “Ang babaw pala naming lahat. 'Yung mga simpleng jokes, tawang tawa kami. 'Yung simpleng takbo sa UP, enjoy na enjoy kami.”
