After six years of working together as two of the three well-loved hosts of ABS-CBN’s morning show Magandang Buhay, it’s no surprise Jolina Magdangal and Melai Francisco have since bonded on and off the set. For Melai’s 34th birthday this year, Jolina shared a sweet message for her fellow “momshie” along with recent photos at the celebrator’s birthday celebration. In the post, Jolina also revealed that their friendship is not perfect and is not without its own share of misunderstandings which they have weathered over the years.
In her Instagram post last April 6, Jolina wrote, “Sa aking Momshie na over over na sa pagkasosyal at ginagawang pambahay ang Versace… 😂 MALIGAYANG KAARAWAN.
“Pero ito seryosong dedication.
“Dear Momshie Mels, sa halos mag aanim na taon na tayong magkasama sa MB, nagkaroon tayo ng mga pangilan-ngilan na di pagkakaintindihan, at dahil dun akala ko mas nakilala kita at lumalim na ang friendship natin.
“Pero nitong nakaraang cycle, March 29- April 2 to be exact, may mga pangyayari at revelation tayong dalawa (at ibang tao) na sobra sobra kong pinagpapasalamat sa Panginoon dahil mayroon akong isang Momshie Mels sa buhay.😢 Totoo yan Momshie Mels, walang halong char char!
“To more more years of TRUE FRIENDSHIP! Happy happy birthday!
“Ps: Can i be your best friend?”
In the same post, Melai reacted to the online greeting and wrote to share her appreciation in the comments section. “Yes yes yes momshiejols plssss labyuuuu mis u,” and “Momshiejolsssssss😢😢😢😢😢 salamat Labyuuuuu,” Melai wrote.
Melai and Jolina along with their other Magandang Buhay co-host Karla Estrada first became close when they were contenders for the first season of Your Face Sounds Familiar in 2015 where Melai emerged as the winner. They all became first time morning talk show hosts a year later through Magandang Buhay.
