Time flies! The only child of actress-singer Vina Morales, Ceana Lee, is now officially a teenager.
This Monday, April 25, Vina marked her daughter's milestone birthday by turning to Instagram to share her message and wish for Ceana.
"I am truly blessed to have such a special princess in my life! Happiest bday to you my baby girl @ceanamlee," wrote Vina.
"I hope that life always brings you happiness, just as you deserve. You are the sweetest, kindest, most caring young person I know, and I am so proud and lucky to be able to call you my daughter! Now that you’re 13 years old, you will officially say goodbye to your childhood and will be considered a teenager. Welcome to the teenage world! I love you very much, mommy will always be here for you."
Ceana is Vina's daughter with her former partner, businessman Cedric Lee.
In a past interview, the Marry Me, Marry You star shared how proud she is as a single mother to Ceana.
"Proud ako sa sarili ko. Pinagmamalaki ko kasi lumalaki 'yung anak ko nang mabuting bata. Happy ako at thankful ako maski ako lang mag-isa [ang] nagpapalaki sa anak ko," she said.
"Thankful ako kasi napakasimple ng anak ko. Talagang hindi siya mareklamo," she added. "Nararamdaman naman niya na mahal na mahal ko siya at lahat ng ginagawa ko ay para sa kanya. Siguro kuntento na siya."
Nonetheless, the actress refuses to take all the credit for raising her daughter into the child she is today.
"I'm really grateful and thankful sa family ko na kapag may trabaho ako ay may napag-iiwanan ako [kay Ceana]. Sa kapatid ko, sa magulang ko. ... Thankful ako sa mga taong tumutulong sa akin kasi hindi ko kayang mag-isa," she said.
