Trina Candaza, the former girlfriend of Carlo Aquino, was treated to a lovely surprise as she turned another year older last Sunday, May 8.
The lifestyle vlogger, whose 26th birthday coincided with Mother's Day, shared photos and clips of her surprise party on Instagram, as she thanked her family and loved ones for the touching gesture.
"Thank you for making me happy on my birthday and Mother’s Day. First time kong ma-surprise. Gusto ko talagang mag-birthday party because ilang years na din ako hindi nagse-celebrate and last year was my saddest birthday... I thought hindi ako makakapag-celebrate kasi walang mag-aalaga kay Mithi, but ayan!! May pa-surprise bigla!" she wrote.
"Thank you for loving me and my Mithi. Thank you nandiyan kayo sa buhay naming mag-ina."
Mithi is the one-year-old daughter of Trina and Carlo, who recently called it quits after being together for more than three years.
It was the actor who confirmed their separation in an interview with ABS-CBN News last April, following months-long rumors surrounding their relationship.
"No na. Nag-separate na kami this year lang," he confirmed.
Despite this, however, Carlo said he and Trina have remained civil and are still on speaking terms, as they raise their daughter through a co-parenting set-up.
"Nag-uusap kami, every once in a while nahihiram ko si Mithi pero s'yempre dahil nga pandemic pa rin, 'yung safety muna niya [ang priority]. 'Pagka may trabaho ako nag-aantay ako ng ilang days," he said.
