Actor Marco Alcaraz penned a simple birthday greeting for his wife, beauty queen-turned-actress Lara Quigaman, as she turned 39 on Monday, January 3.
On his Instagram page, Marco shared a picture of himself with his wife at the beach.
"The Real Essence of a Woman. A woman who is able to love and give herself up and sacrifice herself up to other people and being a good wife, mother, sister, daughter and a good friend to everyone," he captioned the photo.
"Happy, happy Birthday to you @laraquigaman and I love you so much. You are a blessing to me, Kuys Noah, Tobin and Moses," he added.
Last New Year's Day, Marco also paid tribute to Lara as he marked their 11th wedding anniversary.
"Bago matapos ang araw na ito I wanna greet my gorgeous wife happy anniversary. Maraming salamat for loving us unconditionally. You are the perfect wife and mother.. I'm not perfect but lahat ng sweldo ko sa 'yo. Mahal na mahal kita," he wrote.
For her part, Lara also shared her special anniversary message for Marco.
"11 years. Thank you asawa ko for carrying me all these years. Totoo, kinikilig pa rin ako sa ‘yo... Mahal kita. Happy anniversary," she wrote.
Lara and Marco married in a civil wedding in Canada in 2010. They then tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Hacienda Isabella in Indang, Cavite in July 2012
