Claudine Barretto penned a heartwarming birthday message for her son, Santino, who turned 15 years old on Tuesday, July 19.
Posting a photo of Santino on Instagram, the actress described her son with Raymart Santiago as God's gift to her.
"Happy happy 15th birthday My Son...thank u for being a great Brother to Ate Sab & Kuya to Noah & Quia & the BEST SON a Mother can only pray for. You are such an Amazing Person. I know great things will happen to great People like you," she wrote.
"I luv u more than anything in this world Saint. there isn’t anything Mummy won’t do for u. you are my life, anak."
Aside from Santino, Claudine has three other children: Sabina, Quia, and Noah. All three are adopted.
Just last June 22, it was Sabina, the eldest among the siblings, who celebrated her birthday. She turned 18.
The country's "Optimum Star" also took to social media to mark the special occasion.
"To my firstborn, my 1st daughter, my life. Happy happy 18th birthday @sab_barretto. I thank you so much for making me a mother. The moment I held you in my arms I knew that we were meant to be. That you were mine. How I remember that moment like it was yesterday," she wrote.
"Now that you are an adult, know that you will always be my baby. I cannot promise you that I will solve all your problems but know that you will never have to face them alone. I will forever be here for you, whether you like it or not," she said. "It’s an honor to be your Mom. I love you more than you’ll ever know."
