Singer Claudia Barretto received heartwarming messages from her loved ones as she turned 22 on Monday, July 26.
Her mother Marjorie Barretto and sisters Dani and Julia Barretto all took to Instagram to share their birthday greetings for Claudia.
"Claudia is 22 today," said Marjorie before addressing her daughter. "You are wise beyond your years. So much to look forward to. May God continue to bless and protect your path. Continue to be strong and even stronger in your faith and prayer life. I am behind you always. We love you! Happy birthday my dearest Claui."
"Oh to be young and be this gorgeous!! You’re a dream, @claudia!! Happy happy birthday!!!" Dani, for her part, said.
"Thank you for always reminding me to stop and smell the roses. You’re so wise beyond your years and so selfless. My only prayer is that you also remember to put yourself first and live your best life. I love you so much! I’ll always be here for you no matter what," she added.
Meanwhile, Julia wrote: "Claudia — my sister, my best friend and soulmate. Happy birthday my angel. Nothing I wouldn’t do for you."
Aside from her mom and sisters, Claudia's father, comedian-actor Dennis Padilla, also greeted her a happy birthday on Instagram.
Claudia, 22, entered showbiz as a recording artist in 2017. Since then, she has released two EPs and several hit singles, including "Finally Found It," "Stay," "You", and "Conflicted".
Apart from singing, Claudia is also a staunch mental health advocate. In 2020, she partnered with Mental Health PH to launch an online-based campaign dubbed "MINDGAMES", which focuses on utilizing various forms of art and media to promote awareness and inclusivity among Filipino youth on mental illness.
Last January, Claudia marked a milestone in her career as she signed a deal to be part of Viva Artists Agency, the same talent agency that handles the career of her sister Julia.
