KC Concepcion turned 36 years old on Wednesday, April 7, and she marked her special day by paying tribute to her mother, Sharon Cuneta.
On Instagram, the actress and jewelry designer expressed her gratitude to her mother for bringing her to the world and for raising her as a then-single parent.
"La Reina. The ketchup to my fries. The Kris to my Kylie (ok no but whatever). The naughty to my nice (or maybe the other way around). Thank you for bringing me to the world, raising me and doing the best you could at 19 for your Easter baby! You instilled in me so much about love, work, and life. You made me both strong and vulnerable, independent but sensitive, you’ve made me resilient," said KC.
"You always said the best lessons learned in life are learned outside of the 4 walls of the classroom! So true! Thinking of you Mama and love you," she added.
KC tagged her mother in her post and used the hashtag #BirthdayAppreciationPost.
KC is Sharon's daughter with her former onscreen partner and husband Gabby Concepcion.
The veteran actress-singer is now married to Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan, with whom she has three children—Frankie, Miel, and Miguel.
In her birthday message for her eldest child, Sharon said: "Happy birthday again, Kristina. Wishing you love and happiness and success in your career. Hope you had a great birthday with your Pa and your family. God bless you always. Thanks and you are welcome."
KC celebrated her birthday with her father and his family in Lobo, Batangas.
"Cool, calm, casual. How we celebrated my birthday," she said in a previous post. "Truly grateful for this family time together. No frills, just love."
