Xian Lim shared his heartwarming message for his mother, Mary Anne Lim, as she turned another year older on Monday, May 31.
In an Instagram post, the Kapamilya actor expressed his gratitude to his mom for all the sacrifices she made for him growing up and for supporting him in everything he does.
Sharing a throwback photo of his mom, Xian wrote: "To my dearest mother, happiest birthday to you! Thank you for all the sacrifices you made sa pagpapalaki sa akin. Thank you for always being the person I can count on. Thank you for supporting me in everything I do and loving me unconditionally. We may have our disagreements on certain matters at times but at the end of the day, our bond and love for each other will always prevail."
He also thanked his mother for cheering him up when he's down, and more importantly, for giving him life and bringing him into the world.
"I love you so much mom and I am very lucky to have you by my side," he said. "When times get rough for me, you always know how to listen and cheer me up. Lastly, out of the million reasons to be grateful... Thank you for giving me life and bringing me to this world. I wish we have a thousand more birthdays to celebrate together."
Xian added: "I hope you don't mind that I took this picture. I know you're a private person but the whole world deserves to see how beautiful you are. I love you 4000."
In the comments section of his post, Mary Anne described her son as her gift from God.
"Thank you Xian. I'm so happy you made me cry. You are God's gift to me, a wonderful son," she said.
Just recently, Xian paid tribute to his mother and maternal grandmother Leonie as he marked Mother's Day.
In his message for the two, the actor said: "Happy Mother's Day @mommymaryanne and to my lola. A never ending pasasalamat sa lahat ng moms out there! Thank you for bringing us sa mundong ito. Thank you for the love and the sacrifices you all made to stir us in the right direction. Thank you for the unconditional love you shower us with everyday. I love you mom and lola!"
