Showbiz veteran Sharon Cuneta took to social media to celebrate her daughter, singer Frankie Pangilinan, as the latter turned 21 on Thursday, December 16.

In the caption, the actress wrote: "21. At 21, Baba, I had already married, had had Ate Tina, and come out of my first marriage. I was a working single mom whose whole world revolved around your sister, working hard more often than I would’ve wanted to, to give Ate the best in life. She was my world, and I was hers.


"Now you are the age I was then, and I cannot believe how very swiftly time flew. In my eyes, you will always be my baby who was born a 'manang'—already too mature for her age, even with those innocent, big, black, saucer-like eyes. But truth is, though I miss your little self, I wouldn’t trade the woman you have become for anything. You are so precious to me, and that I am precious to you means the world to me. Thank you for being my book-reader over our hours-long Facetime sessions, my 'What’s up, Baba? Problem?' 'No Mama - I just missed you!' baby. My 'Thank you po for taking such good care of my Mama' girl whenever I introduced someone from my TV show set to you. 

“Thank you for telling me everything—it has made me respect you all the more, knowing that I have your full trust that I cannot help but be most trustworthy—and worthy of giving you the best pieces of advice from my life’s experiences. Thank you for loving me the way you do—at once a best friend, a listening and obedient daughter, even an adviser when sometimes the tables seem to turn and Mama turns to you for advice.

"Baba, thank you for living your life the way you do. I am so very proud of you, your talents, your gifts, and most of all your heart. I love you from the very depths of mine and I will continue to until my last breath, no matter if you make huge mistakes or whatnot. I will never leave you even if the world does. You are my Baba, my love, my friend, my baby. I feel so privileged to have been chosen by God to be your mother. Happy 21st, my now-adult beautiful, talented, God-fearing, good-hearted daughter! I wish you good health and only happiness, no matter how it comes your way! You are, quite simply, my pride, joy, and treasure. May God give you all the desires of your ever so deserving heart! Yaaay you’re coming home na!!!"

In a separate post, Sharon posted an old clip of her television commercial with a then-very young Frankie for a popular fast-food chain.

 

"You still wipe food off of the sides of my mouth. You are still so happy when you see me happy. You are still my buddy and my baby girl. You still kiss me on the lips when you hug me tight and tell me you love me and that I’m the best mommy in the world. You are still pitch-perfect in your singing. And you still ask for McDo Fried Chicken for your first meal whenever you come home from New York, and order it even at odd hours of the night when you can’t sleep," she wrote. "Oh my Kakie! I just love you so much and thank God for you everyday!"

Aside from Frankie, Sharon has two other children with her husband: Miel, who turned 17 last September, and Miguel, who is now 12 years old.

She also has a daughter, actress and jewelry designer KC Concepcion—the "Ate Tina" she was referring to in her post—with her former husband, actor Gabby Concepcion.
