KC Concepcion shared her heartwarming birthday message for her stepfather Kiko Pangilinan, who turned another year older on Wednesday, August 24.
On Instagram, KC posted a throwback photo of their family taken during a trip to South Korea years ago.
"Happy birthday @kiko.pangilinan. We love and appreciate you for educating us, guiding and disciplining us—and for all the ways you’ve kept the family together, through all of life’s twists and turns," KC, the eldest daughter of Sharon Cuneta, said.
"Enjoy Korea and may your birthday cake be as great as your daily dose of samgyupsal," she added, followed by heart hands, clinking glasses, and black heart emojis.
Kiko, who turned 59, is currently in Korea with his wife Sharon and their kids to celebrate his special day.
Aside from KC, her sister Miel also took to Instagram to pen a loving message for their father.
"My first vivid memory (like, truly vivid that I can remember) is of you telling me that I was a Virgo just like you. you told me nearly a decade and a half later that you said it so I’d know we had something in common," began Miel.
"It was that day that I really fully realized just the kind of parent that you are. Always the only dad in our batch parent group chats, always dropping us off at school on our first days, always taking us to go grocery shopping every Sunday, always making time out of your schedule to come and watch us perform something that you could’ve very well just asked for a video of."
Miel, who last June came out as a member of the LGBTQ community, said she is just grateful to have Kiko as her father.
"You’ve played out such a big parental role in our lives, taking the role of mother too, sometimes, and now it’s our turn to start taking care of you, okay?" she wrote.
"My siblings and I love you more than words can express. I’ll give you many big hugs today. Happy 59th birthday, farmer Fred!!" she said.
