Leon Barretto, the only son of former actress Marjorie Barretto, celebrated his 19th birthday on Saturday, April 2.
Through an Instagram post, Marjorie shared her heartfelt message for her son as she posted snaps of him with their family.
"Happy 19th Birthday to my dearest Leon! I can’t think of a better son, brother, and Kuya to Erich. Thank you for making my mommy heart so happy and proud all the time. We love you so very much!" she said.
Leon, along with actress Julia and singer Claudia, are Marjorie's children with her former husband, actor-comedian Dennis Padilla.
The former actress also has a daughter with actor Kier Legaspi — vlogger Dani — as well as politician Enrico “Recom” Echiverri — 9-year-old Erich.
Meanwhile, aside from Marjorie, Dani also took to Instagram to pen a touching birthday message for her brother as he turned 19.
"Happy Birthday to our gentle giant, @theleonbarretto. Thank you for being the best brother to us, most especially to Erich. And for being mom’s protector and everyone’s cameraman. Hahaha! Your patience is admirable!" said Dani.
"Seeing you grow into a fine man is definitely one of our proudest moments. Please know that I will always be here for you to guide you and help you power through life," she wrote. "Your crazy sisters love you so very much!! Happy Birthday, Li Li!!!"
