Music veteran Gary Valenciano took to social media to celebrate the birthday of his first granddaughter Leia, who turned six years old.
On Instagram this Thursday, November 3, the country’s “Mr. Pure Energy” marked the special occasion by sharing an old clip of Leia dressed in a cute bee costume.
“I really can’t believe that you are now 6 years old my dearest Leia. I remember you when you were this young. Time isn’t flying by… it’s zooming across our lives in the speed of its own,” wrote Gary.
“Happy happy bday Leia. Pappy can’t wait to see you again. I need some energy!!!! You know very well what that means,” he said. “I chose to post this clip as this always always, always manages to bring a smile across my face. That’s what you always do to me, to Wowa, and to the entire family.”
He added: “Your brother is going to be so blessed to have you as an ate. I love you so so so very much princess Leia. Hope you have a happy, happy, happy and blessed birthday.”
Paolo, the eldest son of Gary and the father of Leia, is expecting his second child with his wife Samantha.
Gary shared the wonderful news last September as he expressed his excitement over becoming a grandpa again.
Paolo, one of the most in-demand concert directors in the country, and his wife welcomed their daughter Leia in 2016. The couple has been married since 2013.
