Bela, for her part, thanked Kim for always being there for her, especially during the most difficult times in her life.
"Chinitaaaaa!!! To the pucca to my shells and the twin I chose to have... I wish for you to be the happiest person today. People have known you for years through their screens as the girl who wears her heart... and her thoughts on her sleeve, and you are exactly that but also so much more. Thank you for the laughs, the extremely fun moments, and all the in betweens... whether it’s a dinner run in Hawaii, a mission in New York, tough and sad airplane rides, a simple catch up AngBeki sesh or deep conversations after shoots," she said.
"I will forever be grateful that you saw me through my hardest times and made sure that we’re always happy no matter what. I love you Kimmyyyyyy!!!!" she added.
In a previous interview, Kim said that it was during a party of a common friend that the "AngBeKi" group was unexpectedly formed back in 2017.
“Kami talaga ni Bela, may common friend kami. Tapos parang nag-gatecrash lang kami sa isang birthday party na nandodoon si Angelica,” she said. “Hanggang sa inumaga na kami, nagkwentuhan na kami and everything. Hanggang sa lagi na kami nagsasama."
Meanwhile, on her Instagram page, Kim thanked all those who remembered to greet her on her birthday.
"Today I woke up feeling extra grateful! Today I woke up with a smile on my face while reading all your messages for me and caption post too! Today I woke up receiving so much love from everyone! Today is a special day and I thank our Father almighty for this beautiful life He gave me," she said.
"Thank you for all the greetings, my heart is full. Kakagising ko pa lang pero parang dulo na ng araw ko 'yung natatanggap kong pagmamahal. I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH ME. Mahal na mahal ko kayo! Maraming salamat!" she added.
She also shared photos from her birthday shoot with celebrity photographer Gee Plamenco Jr.
"'We age not by years but by stories.' Cheers to LIFE... 3 + 1!!!" she said.
