Actor Oyo Boy Sotto penned a heartwarming message for his adopted son Kristian Daniel, or simply "Kiel", who celebrated his 13th birthday on Monday, August 16.
Through an Instagram post, Oyo expressed his love and gratitude for his son Kiel, as he wished him a happy birthday.
"I thank the Lord for 13 years of your life here on earth. You are such a blessing to us Kiel. I may not be perfect but always remember that Dada loves you so much! I pray that as you go through your teenage years, you will seek the Lord all the days of your life. I love you Kiel! Happy birthday! Let’s create more good memories! I’m excited for you," he said.
Wife Kristine Hermosa wrote a heartwarming message for their son as well.
“Walang aksidente kay God. Hindi aksidente na binigay ka niya sa amin.. na ikaw ang naging daan sa matinding training namin bilang magulang.. 😊Thank you for always trying to be better and for understanding our shortcomings. You are a good and obedient son, Kiel.. don’t forget that. God has a great plan for your life, always obey and honor Him in everything you do. Happy 13th birthday, Kiel! We, your family are just here for you.. ❤️ We are proud of you. Your siblings are all looking up to you and are all cheering you on. They adore you so much, Kuya. Please lead them well. ❤️ We love you! #Kiel #13”
Oyo and Kristine adopted Kiel before they got married in January 2011.
Later that year, they welcomed their first biological child, Ondrea Bliss. Their second biological child, Kaleb Hanns, was born in 2014, while their fourth child, Marvic Valentin, was born in 2016.
Just recently, Oyo and Kristin welcomed their fifth child—Vittorio Isaac.
They introduced their newborn son to the public last August 4.
In his previous post, Oyo said: "Lord Jesus maraming salamat! You are faithful! Thank you for another answered prayer!"
Meanwhile, Kristine wrote: "Thank you Lord God for giving us the ability to produce and bring life to a beautiful human being... Thank you Lord for your faithfulness and protection."
"To our newborn Vittorio Isaac, you are a beautiful blessing and another reminder of His faithfulness. You are a miracle. Your siblings adore and love you," she added.
