Last year, Ella Cruz encountered some stress when her Facebook page got hacked a day before her birthday. The actress eventually recovered her account and was able to enjoy her simple celebration while doing quarantine at home. This year, the former FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actress celebrated her 25th birthday with a nice surprise from her family and boyfriend Julian Trono.
The 25-year-old actress and dancer shared photos from her kiddie-themed party last August 21 held at home. She wrote, “25th birthday party turned into kiddy party Thank you for this fun party. Again, my family, my friends and people who loves me, really never fail to surprise me! and mag isip ng mga pakulo lagi kong sinasabi ‘simple lang, 25 naman na ako eh.’ Pero binigyan nila ako ng children’s party! at dahil bawal lumabas para magresort, dinala na lang nila sa bahay kaya mama, my fam, hun @juliantrono, friends, @ellamazingofc & JEI !!! Thank you always!!! thank you for always making me feel like your baby i love you all! And salamat po sa lahat ng bumati at nakaalala ”
Ella’s boyfriend of three years and onscreen partner Julian also shared a sweet birthday message for Ella on his social media account. He wrote, “As always, we forgot to take photos for the gram. but it doesn’t matter, cause these memories should be captured by the heart and not by the camera, right? Hope you enjoyed our little children’s party. hihi forever grateful, my hun. dreams are being fulfilled, goals are getting closer, and while we get busy building our own castle, let me lift it all up to Him, all the love and all the life. I appreciate you, and I will always choose you. Happiest birthday, woman. ”
Last year, Ella and Julian launched a fundraiser to support the youth and frontliners who have been deeply affected by the ongoing pandemic. The celebrity couple distributed more than a thousand food packs, medical supplies, and other necessities to families in need, health workers, and other frontliners.
