Actress-singer Maris Racal surprised her fans and followers on Wednesday, September 22, with snaps from a special photoshoot she did to mark her 24th birthday.
Veering away from her sweet image, Maris looked fierce and sophisticated in the photos taken by photographer to the stars BJ Pascual.
"And just like that, I turned 24," she captioned her post on Instagram.
She also credited Eldzs Mejia for directing her birthday shoot, Adrianne Concepcion for styling her, and Jelly Eugenio and Raymond Santiago for doing her makeup and hair, respectively.
Some of those who greeted Maris in the comments section of her post included Charo Santos-Concio, Joshua Garcia, Loisa Andalio, Joao Constancia, Arci Munoz, Nikki Valdez, Chie Filomeno, Bianca Gonzalez, Vhong Navarro, Jhong Hilario, Zephanie, and Vance Larena.
Maris, 24, made her showbiz breakthrough in 2014 via ABS-CBN's Pinoy Big Brother: All In, and has since ventured into acting and making music.
Most recently, she released a new single entitled "Asa Naman", under Balcony Entertainment. The song was co-written and produced by her boyfriend, OPM icon Rico Blanco. He also co-directed the music video alongside Maris.
Meanwhile, the former Rivermaya frontman also greeted Maris a happy birthday on Instagram.
Posting photos of the actress, including a rare snap of them cuddling, he wrote: "happy birthday madam. love you so much po."
The musician couple has been dating since before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it was only last May, months after Maris's birthday greeting to Rico spurred rumors that they are romantically involved, that the actress confirmed their relationship.
