Andrea Brillantes celebrated her birthday on Friday, March 12.

In a video uploaded by her talent agency Star Magic on YouTube, titled "18 Treasures," family, friends, and colleagues of Andrea shared their birthday wishes, as well as their birthday gifts for the actress, who turned 18.


Among them was Dimples Romana, Andrea's onscreen mother in the hit afternoon series Kadenang Ginto, who gifted her a refrigerator for her new home.

"Ang regalo ko sa ‘yo ay ang aking walang sawang pagmamahal at suporta... At parating na ‘yung refrigerator for your beautiful home," said Dimples in her video greeting. "‘Wag kang mag-alala, ‘pag dumating diyan, nai-deliver na, i-text mo ako at ipapadala ko pa ang mga ilalagay natin sa loob. Alam na alam ko na kung ano ‘yung mga gusto mong nandyan sa loob ng refrigerator. I love you, Blythe. Happy 18th birthday, my love."

Meanwhile, Andrea's The Gold Squad peers, Francine Diaz and Kyle Echarri, gave her a rosary and her favorite wafer sticks as birthday gifts.

Kung bakit rosary, since magkatabi lang tayo ng room sa lockdown taping, nakikita ko minsan kapag nagkakasalubong tayo sa hallway, bago ka matulog meron kang suot suot na rosary," explained Francine. "Naaalala ko rin dito sa rosary na ‘to ‘yung time na pupunta tayo ng San [Francisco] no’n tapos sobrang natakot tayo sa airplane kaya sabay tayo nagdasal. Dala dala mo pa ‘yung rosary mo. Nakahawak tayo sa rosary."

Alam ko sobrang gusto mo ‘to [wafer sticks] eh," Kyle, for his part, said. "Kasi nag-lock in, lagi mong dala ‘to, lagi mong hinahanap ‘to sa iba’t ibang tao ‘pag nauubusan ka. Pero it’s okay, I got you one now. Para meron ka nang sarili mo."

As for her onscreen partner Seth Fedelin, the actor revealed that he cooked Andrea's favorite dish—estofado—for the actress' special day.

Siyempre dahil [18th birthday] mo, gusto kong gawing special ito, Ali. Gusto kitang bigyan ng isang bagay na hinding hindi mo makakalimutan, maliit man o malaki. Tandang tanda ko Ali ang hinihiling mo sa ‘kin sa birthday mo ay blender. Blender na sa ibang bansa ko pa bibilhin, o-order-in ko pa, at napakamahal. Pero Ali, o-order-in ko ‘yun para sa ‘yo, kaso nga lang hindi ko mabibigay ngayon. Kaya ang ginawa ko muna ngayon, pinadalhan kita sa bahay mo ng niluto kong estofado," said Seth. 

Ayan Ali. Tandang tanda ko, kung bakit ito ‘yung niluto ko, kasi every time na pupunta ka rito sa bahay ito laging hiling mo sa papa ko na lutuin para sa ‘yo. Kaya naisip ko na paglutuan ka, nagpaturo ako sa papa ko nang sa ganon ay maibigay ko sa ‘yo. Kaya Ali pagpasensyahan mo muna. Alam ko magugustuhan mo ‘to," he added.

In his video message, Seth also said: "At ang pinakaregalo ko sa ‘yo ay ang aking heart. Ayun, Ali. Ang puso ko sa ‘yo lang, sabihin na natin, sa ‘yo lang ang puso ko Ali."

On Instagram, Andrea marked her 18th birthday with photos from her recent shoot with celebrity photographer Mark Nicdao.
